and you thought last week's post was long winded with photos!
you might want to bring the pot along with your cuppa!
|more on this photo further in post|
Today we have day 2 and 3 here as well as a quick peek of the of the morning after! LOL
Day two starts out with a couple different lessons.
For our retreat each gal comes equip with a lesson or technique to share. Each brings the supplies or materials needed for her lesson and then gets her shot at teaching.
What you see here in the uncontrollable laughter is the Weiser sisters cutting in on each others teaching by explaining the process for them.
What we found was that WE ALL did it
and we cracked ourselves up at all being "bad listeners" LOL
Sherie's lesson was an exploding house complete with all the vintage embellishments and all the printed images you could want
and then some cool texture stuff to decorate the outside walls
|will show when finished|
Karenliz showed us how to use Resin on embossing folders;
she brought a bunch of her embossed folders for us to use
see top of photo
and then we used what resin was left on assorted papers
|more on that 71 number coming up...|
Pammie brought vintage clipboards and all sorts of embellishments...
washi tapes,buttons, you name it,she brought it!
You may wonder how those Weiser sisters were even able to carry their luggage!We did! haahaa
Anyway, Pam's idea was to decorate the clipboard using this assortment of goodies...
of course my mind wandered and I came up with the perfect substrate for my found beach treasures
if you remember a few posts back, I shared photos of some my summer beach finds.
Well they came together here on this clipboard.
I did have to "age" the metal part,because dear Pam had painstakingly cleaned the whole thing to a shiny newness!
sorry Pam! teeheehee
found piece of metal something or other underneath the head- which really is not a head,just looks like one to me
piece of bark from a Paper Birch tree
and No.8 from a vintage book
look at this gorgeous patina on this rusted metal!
I am quite please with this piece and believe it is one of my new favorites!
Next up- some goofiness and off to the auction!
Rile says are you girls ready yet?
Once at the auction we quickly sought out wanted items and marked our territories
here Pammie and I are a bit annoyed that others are checking out our finds...
and these characters are busy being Chill!
We scored all around!
I beat out a couple of others for 1st choice of these 2 boxes of Vintage postcards
Pam got this beautiful pitcher for me and this cool fly catcher- I have ideas for this and they don't include flies!!
Sherie won this cool cubbie for me for the art barn
and I got this fabulous vintage steamer! Can't wait to use it!!
Sherie and Pam managed to gather many other cool auction finds and squeeze them into their suitcases
and yes, Sherie's was over limit! LOL
We had a great time at the auction came home,
ate and went back to creating...more to come
I'll be back on Thursday will the final 3rd Annual Art Retreat posting and photos of the dolls we made from my class!
Hope to see you then~
as always, thank you from my heart for your visits!
