Saturday = Art . Day

I'm a pretty hopeless crafter. Much of this stems from my inability to finish projects that I start. I get interested in something and then am just as quickly on to the next thing.

So yesterday morning I went to a mixed-media art class with Theresa, whom I absolutely adore. I had to bring a canvas and myself, and then there were loads of goodies that she brought with which we could make our art!




The fact that I had loose guidelines, a time limit, and help was the only reason that I managed to complete anything at all!



Mine is composed of bits of vintage images, sewing patterns, odd pieces from an old dictionary, and loads of rhinestones! My favorite thing about this project is that not a single drop of glue was used -- everything is done with wax!! Now it just needs some kind of wonderful vintage frame, and up on the wall it can go :)
