ATC for NSD at My Daughter's Wish

Tonight I decided on the ATC I'll be doing at MDW on National Scrapbook weekend. I wanted to use a china doll somehow and this is what I came up with. Really simple. I couldn't find a china doll image I liked so I took a picture of one of my actual Charlottes, reduced it and cut it out. I'm thinking of taking this image and going further with it for one of the canvases for my canvas collage class.

If you're attending NSD at MDW stop by my table and make a card and say hi!

Vintage Dress Form Class

Vintage Dress Form Class, originally uploaded by anartsygirl.

I'm so excited! I have a bunch of classes coming up at My Daughter's Wish in Pleasant Hill. Among them is the vintage dress form class that I've been wanting to teach for some time. As you can see from the picture I've barely gotten started on it. Also coming up this quarter is a canvas collage class where we'll work on three 4x4 collages (one of which will be mermaid inspired), an album titled "Those That I Love" and an ATC class that I will be teaching with the talented Valerie Myers. I will also be teaching the abbreviated version of my canvas collage class during National Scrapbook Day on Saturday night where we'll be collaging one canvas.

I've been in the process of finding and gathering enough of an illustrated childrens poetry book to teach another altered book class in the fall. The book was published in 1963 and it's pretty and inspiring. Keep an eye out for this one later in the year, it's going to be a great keepsake for the special child or children in your life. Best of all - it's purple!

Thanks for reading, have a great week!
