Charm School with Allison Revetta


Our art club came together yesterday in downtown Nashville for a day of making art.  Allison Revetta led us in a full day of charm making after being inspired by Red Lead in St. Louis.  The above charm is made of mica and old papers.  The photo is about 1" x 1.5" and is of my doll Harvey and me way back.


These pieces all feature wonderful patina and rust.  The photo is of my grandmother and her family.  The photo is about 1.5" wide and is mounted on dictionary paper and topped with mica.


This assortment features corner brads and various charms.  All images are somewhere between 1" to 1.5".


Thanks to Allison for a great day of fun. Our group spent a rainy day together doing something we all love.  Some of you may be hearing about the rain and storms here in Tennessee.  Sadly, upon arriving home from our day of fun,  Allison had to evacuate her residence.  Water was already in her art studio then and it has rained almost continuously ever since.  Please keep her and her family in your prayers.
