Last weekend Nancy and I hosted two wonderful artists Iva Wilcox & Colleen Moody for two fun filled days of creativity at GTL. Iva and Colleen brought wonderful finished art to share via a trunk show, all of which was gone in a flash!
Both of these generous women gifted me their classes, and I couldn't have been more thrilled to join them. On Saturday Colleen shared her Bellina Bluebirds, teaching step by step...
so that each student went home with a darling little chick of their own. Mine wasn't complete when I left, but I've worked on her this week. Here she is in all her spring glory complete...
with silk hat and painted shoes. It may seem a bit odd, but I am completely wild for these darling dolls! Sweet Nancy even gifted me one of Colleen's dolls, who I've named little Lily.
On Sunday Iva taught a great group of women her Woodland Fairy Boudoir Lamp.
It stands about a foot tall, and Iva even taught us to wire the lamp from scratch!
Iva's attention to detail is stunning and no corner of this theater is left without attention. We loved the class so much that we asked (begged) her to come back again in the fall and teach a Christmas Theater.
If you ever have a chance to take a class with one of these two amazing artists, do it! I can't say how happy Nancy and I were to have them teach with us, or thank them enough for sharing their kind, generous selves with us! We look forward to seeing hem again in September when Nancy and I hit the road and attend Tinsel Treasures with them both!
