Fall Paper Cowgirl - Come and create!!

Come join me for a Artevent-full day in Waxahachie on October 3rd. This event features 3 unique classes using different genres, different textiles, paper, ribbon, fabric, get the idea!! I will be one of the teachers for the day. We will be making a fabric cuff....I really like to call them fabric collages that you can wear on your wrist, hang for display, add to a journal cover...anything your heart and mind can imagine. We will focus on good technique as well as creative possibilities. To let you know a little about myself, here is a mini-bio (I think it is always hard to write about yourself)..So here is what I gave

Chantal Johnson has had her hands in the "art jar" since she was "une petite fille" ( a little girl) Her french-born and raised mother instilled a love affair with needle and thread, paper and crayon, paint and brush and the list goes on. She loves all things creative and has combined many mediums into her art and home. She has been published in Somerset Studio and is 9 time ribbon winner at our Texas State Fair (in the areas of embroidery, collage, decoupage and crocheting..just to name a few). She has also been published as a writer in devotional journals as well as an inspirational author for her church publications.

Her love of the arts is brought together with her love of teaching. For this fall Paper Cowgirl, she hopes to give the student a knowledge of good technique with freedom to create what is in the heart.

Chantal has been married to her wonderful husband, Scott for 23 years. They have 3 awesome children (19, 15, and 8). For Chantal, her children are truly the work of her heart!!

So please join the whole gang on October 3rd for our fall paper cowgirl event. Check these blogs for more info...Happy trails!!!
