Upcoming Events

Thought it might be a good idea to give you a quick run down of the Paper Crown activities and events for June and July. Hopefully there will be a couple more but for now....

 Sat., June 11th
Nature Study Book- Nicole

Although there is a full house,  we do still have one opening for this beautiful bird journal class. It is early enough in the day that you can come create and still have time for your Sat. chores and errands- besides it is air conditioned here! 

 Crepe Paper 101
 Sat., June 18th
Ann- Denise

Come learn from the master (really she is known as the crepe paper queen in the art circles!) In this workshop you will learn all sorts of tricks of the trade and all the special techniques associated with crepe paper. This will be an excellent technique class and one that will benefit so many of your projects.

4th of July Fun
Sat., June 18th

As many of you know Ann-Denise drives up from Ft. Worth to teach and therefore like to make the most of her trip. She will be teaching a second 4th of July class on Saturday but I don't know it will be. we have both had crazy schedules these past few weeks and she is currently at Paper Cowgirl Art Event in TX. I will call her first thing Monday morning to get the skinny on this patriotic class- I'll keep you posted.

Kandinsky Paper Quilt
Wed., June 29th

I'm off this weekend so the sample will be at the store on Monday but think of this as famous Russian artist creates a quilt out of paper. I have always loved Kandinsky's circle painting because of the vibrant colors and simplicity. When we got in the Basic Grey Hello Luscious line I decided to combine the two to create my own work of art. This will be an easy class where we are basically "piecing" together our picture with paper. It looks wonderful in my head- let's hope it looks just as good in real life. Sample will be at the store on Monday June 13th.

She Sells Seashells
Thurs., June 30th

O.K. girls this is Jackie's last class before her summer vacation so if you think you will be needing a little fix to get you through til mid/ late August you better act fast. This project features one of Catherine Moore's new mermaid stamps and will get you in the mood for the beach.

Birds of a Feather
Thurs., July14th

Medeah is quickly becoming our resident expert on mixed media canvases. This sweet bird will not only be fun to make but think of all the techniques and tips you will learn. If you haven't taken a class from Medeah you are missing out.

Summer Bouquet
Thurs., July 21st

This large canvas will feature an urn full of the luscious paper flowers. I have done this project before it bright hues but after my trip to "Gilded Life, "I'm inspired to try the project in more neutral tones. This would be a great project to use all those bits and pieces of vintage jewelry.  Sample will be at the store soon. 

Floral Shadowbox
Thurs., Aug. 4th 

This sweet shadow box is a great way to celebrate the wonderful flowers that come with summer as opposed to those dog days of summer that will more than likely be occurring while this class in taking place. This project is a little Tim Holtz , a little 7 Gypsies and a whole lot of cute. 

Call Paper Crown, 405 848-2389, to reserve your spot 

Mix & Mingles 

It was so much fun last year we decided to bring this summer tradition back. During the summer months we will once again be having mix & mingles. The first mix & mingle is Tuesday, June 28th from 6-8. Come by the store during mix & mingle to make a fun free project, catch up with friends, grab a delicious snack and shop for 2 hours with a 20% discount. I can't think of anything better to do on a Tuesday night. Mark your calendars you won't want to miss!  

Thought I would leave you this hot afternoon with some more peeks of all the new goodies that have arrived at the store this week- Webster's Pages, Pink Paislee, Basic Grey and new Snug Hug- you gotta love that stuff! For all of you out of towners, until we get the on line store up and running, anything you see on the blog can be purchased simply by calling the store.
