Day Two...

So, here we are on day two of Advanced. Love, Love, Love it! We did weddings again today and tomorrow, and then we move on to Contemporary. Today we did an altar piece, archway, and candlebra. So cool and so much fun! I looove doing the big pieces and I'm super excited because Debbie is going to do the large scale class with me in March now. Woo hoo!! I'm stoked to be taking it with a friend! We brought those big altar pieces home....yeah. I have no idea where I'm going to put it in my house, so it's on our kitchen table. I've run out of room! It's a good thing you can break it down into pieces or I would have never gotten it home! Anywho, we each did pieces of the archway garlands, and then split into two teams to do the arch piece and the candlebra. Deb and I did the arch and Nicole and Tracie did the candlebra. They both turned out beautifully and they complimented each other well.

The altar piece. Note the branches of curly willow inside the vase. I love that touch.
