RAEvN's Nest Art Retreat

I had fun at Kim Rae Nugent's first art retreat in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. I took the Copper Piano Hinge Book class on Friday night (10/17) with Jill Berry and Profound Secrets of the Burnt and Bound on Saturday (10/18) with Bernie Berlin. It was a beautiful time of year in historic Cedarburg in October!

Love Bird

Here is a bird (inspired by Jeanette Janson) ( that I made for my mom and dad's 50th wedding anniversary next month-they were high school sweethearts! They both have a love for nature and animals. I used thick chipboard, copy of bird, patina'd copper, rusty wire, vintage school ledger paper, vintage bingo marker, tiny feather, and old button and fabric.
