Dress forms...dream







Told you I love dress forms.......multi technique using acrilic paint, gellatos, ink, chalk, slick sticks and decoupage and paper. It has a lot of texture in person. I used the negative space to create the background and then used Gecko Galz August emphemera and decoupaged them...it is a lighthearted sort of piece and I washed away some of the color to make it appear a dream.

Jewelry class

This is the type of earrings we will make in the class. If you can make these, you can make any kind...its wire wrapping which is very popular todat...lots of good techniques!

CROP NIGHT


Our monthly crop was held last night and I do believe that everyone had fun. I am so glad that everyone got a prize and learned a few new techniques.

I am glad to say all the croppers ate my greatest friends...if you don't scrape, you need to learn as I do believe that "WE" are the friendliest and most giving people.

If you never have done it, I encourage you to join the scrapbook class...you learn, you have fun, you preserve history, but you make wonderful friends. It has really enriched my life and help me make a statement....

Thank you all for coming and being part of my life

Luv ya

Sherri

This is a page using Gecko Galz Beachy Keen papers. I filled the frames with both pictures and different papers to get a bit of a whimsical look. I used a Martha Stewart all around punch to get a few strips to look like surf....also in the surf are a few hot fix jewels to get the sparkle of the water, and the gleem in Daddys eye. Lastly used Sandy Lions Essesntials to add a few 3 D fish!
