With hardly a moment to spare ~ here are "sneak peeks" of the projects for The Gilded Gathering Art Event being held in Dallas in two weeks!! We are so excited to share these photos with you...
For those of you joining us for this amazing weekend, be prepared to have a wonderful time and make some truly stunning projects!
On Friday, we will be fashioning this gorgeous crown... a brand new Gilded Life design!!
Everything you need to complete this crown will be included in your kit. Please feel free to use your own paper if you wish for a truly one-of-a-kind crown!
Saturday we will stay within the "realm", and create a magical hanging crown! We have dubbed this project the "Crowndelier" and it is soon to become a Gilded Life signature piece. Be the first to make it with us!!
This project requires bringing out the stash of coveted trims and baubles. It will be most fun if everyone gives this project their own unique spin, and you will need to bring some supplies for this one. Think beautiful paper, tassel trim, gimp, fringes, oversized pearls, blingy brooches, buttons.... you get the picture. Bring on the good stuff!
We will provide the crown base, beaded chain for hanging, lots of seam binding, canvas-and-lace flowers, hardware cloth and wire. We will also have vintage dictionary pages to decoupage the inside of your crown. Please bring 3 sheets scrapbook paper or equivalent amount of art paper/wallpaper, along with your trim and "bling".
We will also be hanging ephemera and precious objects from our "Crowndelier", so think broken jewelry bits, tiny picture frames. soldered charms, bits of old lace, glittered birds. Anything goes!!
Finally, on Sunday (whew!), we will change gears and make this stunning soldered box pendant, and attach it to a gorgeous, layered chain dripping with charms and baubles. Everything needed to complete this project will be in your kit!
Bring your tool kit, your scissors, soldering supplies if you have them, your favorite stash of paper and trims, and most of all bring your sweet spirit, your sense of wonder and camaraderie, and your joy.
Yes, definitely bring the joy. We cannot wait to see you!!
