Art Camp The Truth

The truth is you simply must go! It is the most perfect time you could possibly have!

The house was incredible.

Here is Billie, the massage therapist who was available. I’m pretty sure she was the most popular girl there!

Sadly when I am having the most fun, and have the most perfect photo opportunities, is when I don’t take pictures. I’m too busy enjoying the moment to stop… Guess I need to work on that, because some of the most incredible, inspiring art was created this weekend.

Natalie taught this class on collage.

I couldn’t seem to get a great photo of this, but I really like how it turned out, and if you come to my house, it will be hanging on the wall.

Terri taught this class,

It is an old book with a hole cut in the center.

(I offered to do them for $50 each, it wasn’t the fun part of the project..)

This was also a really fun project.

I started another and used a picture of Sam, with pocket watches for the middle. I thought I would use a picture of Dave on the other side and another clock face… I can’t wait to have time to work on it.

There were necklaces made with match boxes… So cool, but mine isn’t done. (Sorry, I spend a little too much time visiting with my neighbors… seems like this is something I remember being written under comments on report cards from my past…)

I did finish this,

I love this! The back of the charms is a little mirror, the flower is vintage silk, with a real diamond, I mean a rhinestone glued on. Very, very fun.

The next camp is in October, I am so excited that my friends Tiffany and Christy will be joining Terri teaching classes. There are 4 openings for this retreat, I hope you will check out the details and join us.

I must go get the rest of my things backed and ready to go AGAIN!
