I am back again this fall at the Flea Circus.. one of my favorite places. I am having a two week show in the vault there.. so if you are in the area please stop by.. there are so many great items for sale in the Circus, the owners are fabulous.. and there is so much going on in Collinsville.. Great Restaurants..Francesca's, The Crown and Hammer, LaSalle Market and Deli... and so much more..!
About a month ago when Jen Cushman and Susan Lenart Kazmer sent a note to the members of the Ice Resin® team telling us about a special project and asking us if we would like to be involved? Now who could resist an offer like that.. not me and not the other team members either. So, within a few days boxes of fabulous bezels, ice resin®, ribbons, iced enamels®, and all manner of treasures arrived at our door steps. And the secret was revealed .... we were all creating bracelets for the EmmyGift Bags. Working on our bracelets, each in our own studio was a covert affair.. and none of us have seen the others work.. So tonight at 7 pm PDT or 10 PM EDT is the Big Reveal.. not just for us to see each others work, but you can come to the twitter chat Here
The artists will be talking about their Emmy Braclets and showing pictures of their work..
Here are some of mine. I decided that my love is for the "cuff" or French cuff" type bracelet, so I set to work with velvets, laces, and added the bezel with iced enamels®, Ice Resin® and other embellishements I found in my box of ice resin® treasures...
I really hope you will have a great time tonight... !!
I hope you can join the Ice Resin® team tomorrow night September 7, 2013 at 7pm PDT or 10 pm EDT for a chat with the Ice Resin Team. We will be revealing the fabulous pieces going into the Emmy gift bags.. and you will be able to ask questions about the materials used, why we love them and how to use them in your artwork. Here is a chance to learn how each artist used her unique talent to design these pieces!
Here are some highlights from the fabulous 2013 Art Unraveled.. Thank you sooo much Linda Young for a really magical event.. we all had so much fun, teaching, socializing and learning... !!
Here is how I spent day One.. helping my good friend Lorri Scott with her "Project Runway" class where each student re-made a old shirt to become a really great dress... in the evening we had a "fashion show" in the meetin area of all the creations. It was great because each student finished her dress and wore it in the show....
Next day i taught a Photoshop class. which was lots of fun.. hard to Photograph a Photoshop class... so here are a couple of the images we created..
Fabulous evening of fun.. with the Teacher/student art challenge! A random drawing paired a student and teacher to create a piece to be auctioned for charity. The duo had 30 minutes to create while drinks an dessert were served to the audience.. Michael Demeng was the "MC" for the final auction... Laughter filled the room.. here are a few pics..some of the participants.. Joanne Sharpe, Kristi Knox Day, Thomas Mann, Thomas Ashman, Tory Brokenshire.. just to name a few!
My next class was the
"SweetHeart Album".. it was a great class.. enjoyed having Kim Allistair Caldwell and Andrea Villareal .. Kristi Knox Day, Margaret Rodgers and Pat..
