Stephanie Rubiano Teaching This Weekend

We are so excited to have the talented Stephanie Rubiano at Paper Crown for two classes this weekend, Sat., Nov. 17th & Sun., Nov. 18th. Stephanie is a native Texan from Austin with a unique style that combines vintage with smart sass. If you have never taken from Stephanie, you are in for a real treat. I promise you will walk away with some treasured projects, a new knowledge of tips and techniques and extras to inspire you at home where you can sharpen your new knowledge.


Stephanie was featured in this summer's issue of Where Women Create and the most recent issue of Somerset Studio.

Class Description:
 
This workshop is a reboot of my popular ‘Perching Pixies’ class where we will utilize the magic of inkjet shrink plastic rather than wood to create tiny 3D standalone artworks!  I will show you simple decorative techniques to add color and pattern to your shrink plastic pieces.  We will then add metal hats, wings and other accessories to the pixies using cold connections.  Ways to engineer the proper seating for your wonderful plastic creations will be discussed and demonstrated.   Come and enjoy a relaxing day where we will revisit an old childhood friend and give it an artful makeover!

Kit fee:  $20
 
Kit will include 2 sheets of shrink plastic with printed imagery, miniature nuts and bolts, socket wrench, wood blocks, small perch for a pixie, handout with directions

Stephanie Rubiano Weekend Nov. 17th & 18th

 
 
 
I love it when I open up an art magazine and a friend is featured! This is the current issue of Somerset Studio which is at the store and it features one of my most favorite teachers, the talented Stephanie Rubiano, who happens to be at teaching at Paper Crown in a few weeks. Actually this is the second time Stephanie has been featured in an art magazine since the move to Waco. Stephanie was also featured this summer in Jo Packham's first addition of Where Women Create. So you can see, I'm not the only one that thinks this lady is super talented.
 
 
Stephanie will be at Paper Crown the weekend of Nov. 17th & 18th for two amazing workshops featuring her shrink art. You will leave her class with lots of goodies, knowledge of new techniques and inspiration to create.

A Crazy, Buzy, Creative, Fun Weekend

Crazy, busy,Creative and so, so Fun are all words I'd use to describe the past 5 days. 5 days, 5 classes, 3 teachers, 48 students, 7 vendors and precious hours of fun, creativity and friendship. It was a whirlwind,but oh did we have fun!

Thanks to Stephanie, Jenn and Angie for sharing your talent with us this weekend. We love creating with you! Thanks also to Nan, Jackie, Angie, Lesa, Jone, Cindy and Jenn for scrambling to create so I would have some wonderful treasures for our petite Glitter Market. As usual, your art was exquisite!
Finally thank you to all who attended classes this weekend. So many of you traveled from out of town to take classes and we so appreciate the time and financial commitment you made to create with us.

I always get so wrapped up when we have an event that I don't take pictures- I HAVE to get better. Hereare a few I tookand some I have borrowed from Stephanie. I know I don't have each class, each sweet soul or unique project created, but each class was a joy, each lady appreciated and each project the cutest every- the talent in the building this weekend was off the charts.
