Filed under Art Projects, Cat's Away... 2017, Collage Sheets, Laura Carson, Winter Crowns Kit

It’s day THREE of this week of While the Cat’s Away Sales & Giveaways!

Reminder: Half Price Shipping on ALL orders (for orders shipping to USA) now through Monday night, January 1st! Only $2.95! Plus FREE shipping on orders over $50! More info

We have a bonus today: not only a FLASH sale and a Giveaway: but also artwork by Design Team Member Laura Carson!

Oh my… Laura has outdone herself! She has made FOUR crowns, each one in a unique style (see the wide photo below for previews of all 4). AND she includes a video tutorial on her blog post, showing how to make wearable crowns (from simpler paper crowns to more complicated wire-frame crowns).

Plus Laura created 2 new collage sheets and a related set of digital image files that were used in the Golden Autumn and Ice Queen crowns (upper left lower right corners of the photo).

I’ll be highlighting one of the crowns in the Giveaway below.

Read more in Laura’s blog post and/or see everything from her FOUR supply lists (clockwise from upper left):
Golden Autumn Crown
Elegant Crown
Ice Queen Crown
Star Crown.
And check out the Giveaway below, as you could win tons of her supplies!
