i've been a busy bee, taking two classes. they are both up for a year, whew.
This finished lesson is from Misty Mawn's FULL CIRCLE CLASS.
all of the photos are one panel of a 3-sided lantern...
this shows her lit up!
and this: my words for her...the rest are "for You",
not showing in this particular photo.
Misty showed us how she made hers to give us an idea on how to proceed...
making all of our own choices for our personal lanterns...
i was able to finally light them up last night!
this is a close-up showing this angels dress...
it is some of my own personal, much loved,
hand-made FABRIC PAPER (a process that takes days, a labor of love)
a 3rd panel shown in the daylight...
and lit in the evening...
and lit some more with a clearer photo ;)
i am going to do this project with my afterschool children,
so i decided to choose wire and beads to put it together,
(they will adore that part for sure)
i LEARN so much from taking Misty's classes,
they are incredible!
i started painting from my heart when first meeting her on line.
she has sent such personal, and beautiful notes, encouraging and lighting fires in my heart.
she is the very one that suggested i start a blog to see what an enrichment it could bring...
and VOILA, yes enrichment, with wonderful on line comrades that i deeply care about and that have supported me for years now...and visa versa...
i would never believe that this all could have ever happened the way it has...
but it's been a difficult yet MAGICAL JOURNEY to revel in
and a passion to carry forever!
THANK YOU miss FINE HUMAN BEING (i say out loud, teary eyed to the world)
MISTY MAWN for sharing your gifts and giving us YOUR ALL!
