Sparkle Art Workshop 2012!

 Sparkle Art Workshop 2012.....Welcome Art Girls!

Such a fun group of girlies! We had the BEST time creating funky fleece scarves, glittery hair pins, and beaded bracelets. Just take a look at these models!

 Our favorite helpers, Grace and Emily were there to help out!

 We made darling hair clips with lots of glitter and gems.
 After a bit of waiting...
 They were dry and ready!
 The scarves were so much fun to make. The girls used an assortment of four polar fleece prints. The sewing machine station kept all the girls busy.

Each layer needed to be cut carefully.
What did we do with the extra fabric scraps?? Headbands of course!
The creativity of my art girls always amazes me.

Next, we beaded like crazy! We made double strands of bracelets and wrapped them around our wrists. We also used fleece scraps and made stretchy fabric bracelets.


Hurry for cupcakes and strawberry fizzy punch! Our day ended with a treat. We reflected on the day, and thought of new crafts to do during the winter season.

 



 What a great start to the holiday season! Thank you for coming sweet girls!

Rodeo Queen Friday!

Our week has been full of fabulous projects and new friendships. Today topped the week off with a Rodeo Queen themed party and artfest!

The morning girls made traditional cowgirl sashes with painted names. They made them even more personal by embroidering red "X's" as accents. They also made floating bracelets, glittery flowers to go on cowgirl hats, and Texas sized decorated mums!


















The afternoon girls created their special Texas style mums along with stacked flowers for their cowgirl hats. They also made hip beaded choker necklaces!
















Each session had a cowgirl themed tea party at the end of their art time. Morning girls enjoyed Rice Crisp Bars with Sprinkles, and afternoon girls had an ice cream sundae.

I'd like to thank my wonderful assistants Emily and Grace. This is their third year to help with my camp. Sweet Rosalyn also came with her sewing machine earlier in the week. She was a great help!

I'm so proud of our Art Camp projects this year. Everyone worked so hard. We stamped, inked, painted, collaged, hand stitched, embroidered, machine stitched, beaded, glittered, gathered, pleated, glued, cut, sketched, and had some really great snacks!

I have enjoyed getting to know all of my girls. They added so much to my summer! Thank you for letting my art camp be a part of your child's vacation.

Please stay tuned for information on other art workshops I will be hosting. I plan on a half day workshop for middle school aged girls. I also will be having my second annual winter workshop in December.

Artfully Yours!

Thrilling Thursday's Events!

Please check out the entry below showing Wednesday's photos!

Thurday was our painting day! We used beautiful pastel iridescent colors to create our projects.

The morning girls made heart pillow hangers using muslin hearts, paint, and old fashioned carbon paper.  We stuffed our pillows and picked out the cutest trim to accent our pillows.








The afternoon girls also used carbon paper, along with old recycled book pages, phone book pages, paint, and sequins. We created lovely mixed media collages.








GREAT fun!

Tomorrow will be the end of our art adventure 2012. How time flies!!
