Exotic Fantasy Butterfly Class

April 6, 2010

Well I had the wonderful opportunity to teach my new butterfly technique to 7 students today at Art Glitter and it was a blast! Everyone paid very close attention and made some very creative butterflies! Here’s one from Sharon, my very talented friend who drove down from Flagstaff for the class.

Sharon's Fantasy Film Butterfly

During the class as I was demonstrating, I was talking about how difficult it is to get a hole sometimes in a film piece this thick. Well little Miss Sharon says, why don’t you poke a hole where you want it to start? And there you go, a new technique is born. It worked wonders. You can control where the hole goes and it is easier to control the size of it too! So thank you so much Sharon! I can’t wait to take a class from you soon too!

Sharon also helped me take photos and I took some too, but I’m exhausted now, there were a couple of hic-ups during the class turning it from a 3 hour class into 4 hours – ouch – sorry all. Live and learn. I’ve been told to get over it so I’m not going to dwell over my disappointment and enjoy the fact that everyone absolutely loved their butterflies. That I am very happy for. I’m adding Sharon’s blog to my sidebar so you can visit her from here at any time. She has wonderful work.

So more photos later. One last thank you to Nancy, our store manager and teacher of most all Art Glitter classes. You were a fantastic help and my comic relief as usual. Enjoy!

    Aw Emily, I know you’d have come up with that idea yourself in a minute or two! Thanks for the props, tho. And thanks for a fun class. You are a great teacher with loads of creativity! There’s no predicting where and when a class will hiccup, and everyone of us experiences it from time to time so, I agree, just move on…Thanks for the link girlfriend!

    Is this a real butterfly? It’s absolutely amazing! I’m an artist too, and I really appreciate this.
