Victorian Ladies Fabric book

 I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. We have finally had some sunshine so I was able to take pictures of the Mixed Media Fabric book I made at the KC Willis has already been a month ago! For my book I chose a more Victorian theme, although I didn't stay with one particular color theme throughout the entire book.
 Page one: quote...A woman should be two things, classy and fabulous.  Coco Chanel
Page 2: quote...Women's eye's have pierced more hearts than ever did the bullets of war.

Page 3: quote...Inside every woman a gypsy girl dances by the fire.

                               Page4: quote....If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.

Page 5: quote....Beauty...when you look into a woman's eyes and see what is in her heart.

These are a couple of projects that I made for Christmas Presents...that still haven't been mailed-Yikes!
                    This one is a family photo...of My Daddy and his brother and's a wall hanging
This one is my mom and her sister....on a tote bag

So you can see I have been busy...and I bet you have been thanks for taking a few minuets to stop by my blog!  I would so love it if you would leave me a comment!!!

KC Willis Workshop in SanAngelo, TX

Last weekend My friend Yuki and I attended  a 2 day workshop with KC Willis in San Angelo, TX and I loved every minute of it! I had never met KC before but had been admiring her work for about a year or so.  Let me tell you she is awesome! I learned so much! Our workshop was small with only 5 students, so we each had a lot of personal attention. Before we got started on our project (a mixed media fabric book) KC told us her story of how she started in her art several years ago. She is very inspirational!
Yuki, KC and myself with one of KC's large canvas pieces.
 KC had a large assortment of her pieces with her because during this trip to Texas to teach a few workshops, she was delivering her art pieces to stores that sell her work. She gave us the opportunity to have first pick if we wanted to buy any of her pieces.  I bought a book kit with 2 of her dvd's and one of her small pieces. I can't wait to watch the dvd's 

Here is the KC Willis piece I was so hard to pick just one!

This is one of the books KC made that was one of the "samples" for the class.  It was amazing how every one's book turned out so different, but they were all beautiful!!!!
At the end of the second day we each did a show & tell of our books. Here is everyone looking at Ann's book....except me since I was behind the camera.

I will never be able to put into words how much I enjoyed the workshop! It has inspired me so much!
I will have to do another post of the book I made during the workshop!

Thanks for stopping by!
