Next meeting Monday January 12th
Cindy Mauer will be teaching us Postcards from the Edge. We will be putting together a small book of altered postcards!
Supplies to bring: sandpaper, 3-4 postcards of your choice, various color ink pads--distress inks work well, black permanent ink pad, lumiere paints, polished pigments or pearl ex powders/paints, binder for pearl ex(gel medium/glaze medium), paint brushes, gel medium for adhesive for tissue paper, artsy stamps with good graphics or any theme you may want for your cards, word stamps (quotes, short phrases) for your theme, sponges or finger daubers if you don't want to get your fingers inky! Cindy will cut the covers for the books and bring eyelets to hold the pages together.
The idea is to sand away print, color image, etc. from the postcard and then adding back onto it the colors of your choice and figures, wording, etc., therefore, it becomes an altered postcard.
Please bring your 6x6" altered page for exchange--this month's theme is winter.
