Spring Fling 2013

Spring Fling for our painting chapter is finished once again! The theme was Passport to Adventure and my table this year was a Paris brocante (flea market) and consisted of an Eiffel tower lamp with a painted shade, a painted table, a small wall pocket, and tote bags. The metal table was one I had that no longer had a home, so I painted roses on the top and did some collage & embossed stamping on the top. There was a really neat scalloped edge under the top and I had a whole collection of vintage crystals that I wired & hung - one in each scallop (there was already a hole there). I made tote bags (8 of them!) for everyone and that entailed a lot of sewing - and hand stitching. I even printed some of the fabric in the flower bundles using my new Gelli plate! That was so much fun and I will be sharing some of this soon. There were also rose flavored french macarons from Le Macaron, the french bakery in Winter Park. All in all, it was a fabulous day! And I am so glad it is over and done for the year - on to the next deadline!!
