Encaustic Activity At Altered Wing

 Right here in the process, my sister reminded me to take pictures!  Thank goodness.
 We were in a class at the wonderful Altered Wing Studio in Redding, CA.
 I think I have found my creative HOME!! There are some wonderful ladies here and I have enjoyed both of my classes so far.
 While we waited for each step to dry, there are plentyof wonderful things to look at.
 This is our instructor, Ginger.  Very sweet and helpful!
 This is Viki.  She taught me how to etch metal and add beads to jewelry.  I usually UN-make jewelry!
             More eye candy...
 This is my seester, Barbie.
 My collage before the encaustic step.
         Love this lampshade--crafted by Ginger.
              I LOVE this!!!!

 I knew this was Monica's spot when I first laid eyes on it!

Our final project.

 I am linking with Claudia today:
                         This is Zelda  She lives in her garden.
                                           View from above.
              I got this little side walk and most of the itty bitty items from Eileen Barry's shop,
                   Wild Thyme Gifts and Garden.
                       I love to visit her shop and find Fairies and plants .
                 ...and to visit with Eileen, too!
             My sister gave me the house at the end of the little stone walkway.
                          Zelda needs a little birdie.
