Another post about Karla Nathan's Bird Song event I attended in early June...
Lori's class was a shadow box, but I decided to use one of the old 1800's fashion ladies I adore in mine - here is what I came up with (it is incomplete, I still need to add some hand lettering and few more fun bits):
Here is a close up:
Karla's first class was a challenge for me, but I had a lot of fun with it. We made spun cotton fairies. Here is how mine came out. Obviously a first try at it, but I like to see her many imperfections as charming:
With my bracelet from Andrea's class I decided to try and substitute pink beads for the blue beads in the kit. This was a big deal as I am not that savvy with jewelry making. But I did it. I also was lucky to have a friend who knows I am not crazy about birds so brought me a rose charm to substitute for the bird that came in the kit. The best photo I got of this project was with my phone - (you may have already seen it on instagram):
Karla's second class was perfect for the last class of the event - we could sit and play with some of the elements we were making as the event came to a close, it is a mobile that was fun to make, but then we made little tags and bits to hang from it. Here is what I came up with (this project is also not finished, I need to string things on the actual mobile still):
