Paper Cowgirl - A Wicked Tea Part 4


On to the class projects! This is the packet that the coven book supplies came in. See what I mean about details?! The teacher was Lisa McIlvain. She has a blog so go check it out http://tarnishedandtattered.blogspot.com/ . Great project! Mine finished is below.

This was Ann Denise Anderson's project. She had a major role in the success of this event besides teaching for sure. Cooking all the food and the decorations were from her personal stash. What a lady! Check out her blog http://whimandfancydesigns.blogspot.com/ .

But her project was made from paper clay. It was a vintage noisemaker. We sculpted a cat head on a ping pong ball. I definitely am not a sculptor! But it was fun and mine didn't turn out half bad. Ann Denise is the Queen of crepe paper! I took another class from her before and learned how to ruffle crepe paper on a sewing machine. I don't think there is anything she can't make from crepe paper.

This class was called Crone's Cottage Pendant. It was taught by Lesley Venable. http://www.flatwoodsfolkart.typepad.com/flatwoods_folk_art/ . She made ahead for us these house shape bezels from clay. We collaged inside then added a tin type photo on top. Then she sealed it with the Ice Resin.
Another project was taught by the Event Organizer Queen herself Cindy Mayfield. Look at her blog for other photos from the event http://papercowgirl.blogspot.com/ . Her project was a book made from cereal boxes. Do not throw those things away! They make a great substitute for chip board. It was called A Shadow Book of Prudence Caulders. We ran behind on time so we didn't get to start the little book but she gave us the supplies. I hope to get mine done soon. I will post about it when I do. Her sample was really cute! I forgot to get a photo of it though to show.
All the projects were fabulous!
Working on projects and visiting with friends. It was a great creative day!





If you get a chance to go to a Paper Cowgirl retreat, please do. It really is a great experience! There usually is one in the Summer and it runs several days. There is even a vendor night. I attended the last show but only on the vendor night. I didn't get to take any of the classes. I hope to next Summer and the dates for it are June 9th - 11th, 2011.
This Fall retreat was a one day event. What a day it was! Thanks to all the teachers and Cindy and Ann Denise for a fabulous time! I appreciate all the hard work!

Oh yeah...can I borrow/steal a couple of your pictures? I got good ones of the decor but not much else. I'll pass on the one of me though. The way I'm pursing my lips makes me look just like my father! LOL
