Wednesday I had three wonderful women in my studio for my first ever 'Papercutting' class. What fun we had! I am truly amazed at how personal and delightful each piece turned out! Kristine loves gypsy caravans and decided to do a Christmas themed piece with a caravan, jolly St. Nick and his donkey and 4 sweet little waifs. The oval shaped canvas back really completed the piece!
Barb wanted to do a piece for a good friend of hers who loves all things Egyptian. She posed herself hieroglyphically as a maiden fanning her King! So much fun, and so original!!!
Kat decided to do a piece for her husband who is a scientist specializing in 'animal sounds'. She created a wonderful scenic background (those trees were individually cut out!) with songbirds and her husband with his 'equipment' getting center stage! Wonderfully personal and very heartfelt!!!
The day was such a success and I will definitely be teaching this class at the Castle this Spring!
