What a fun afternoon I had today. I was invited to a "private" class at my friend Lisa Supers house today. It was taught by Connie Govea Stuart who is to me the "queen" of collage and I admire her art so much. Its not something I've done a lot of but I love to look at the pages of Somerset and dream of all those beautiful things that I wish I could have or make, but alas I have a toddler in the house and its hard enough to keep him away from the paper punches and rubons.. let alone beautiful antique papers and ephemera. Anyways.. I made this FANTASTIC necklace today! ME! A collage artist.. wow.. it was so neat to work with things I hadn't had the pleasure of working with.. all these fun beautiful antique paper piecings.. and beads.. baubles and hanging out with a wonderful group of ladies..

So, thanks so much Connie for really an eye opening class for me that is waking up another part of the artist in me, and thanks so much to LISA for inviting me to spend the day with them. I hope we can make this a monthly or quarterly event, cause man I am IN! Here is a pic of all of our necklaces, and a close up of mine.
