Creative weekend and June meeting

Hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend and finding some way to be creative. I had some fun dying tags and ribbon yesterday! There was an article in the Spring 2009 Somerset Life showing how to do this with Easter egg dyes and I decided to try using distress ink instead(re-inkers). Loved the way they turned out! I want to do more!

The next ASOM meeting will be Monday June 8th at 6:30pm. We will be exchanging ATC's using last month's faux tin type technique and the last Spring 6x6 art pieces. The project is Resin Fresco in Bernie Berlin's book pg 54-55. Bring embossing ink pad, ultra-thick embossing powder(UTEE), heat tool, gesso, acrylic paint, and brushes.

Check out Creative Stamper's blog to see Barb's canvas book--we both enjoyed 2 classes with Amy Flowers in Columbus recently! (see links on the right side of the blog)

May meeting photos

Pictures are of the 2nd spring 6x6 art for exchange, the 4 ATC's traded using last's month's technique(emboss scraps) and the faux tin type project sample we used for tonight's meeting. Thanks Barb Br for the fun project! We had lots of show and tell--I'll try to put a few pictures up of some of my recent class projects. See you all June 8th at 6:30pm for the next meeting.
