First meeting in the new store! How many people besides me started to drive to the old place and then remembered that it had moved???
We exchanged summer 6x6 art pages and 2 ATC's using last month's dimensional resin project. We also had show and tell showing off all the classes some of us took at Stampaway this year and a few other recent projects. We discussed the October retreat and decided on a few projects to work on there. Carla will be teaching a monoprint technique and also fiber/wire wrapped beads. Boiled babies were also mentioned! Sandy will bring everyone a tiny paperbag book. The retreat will start at 9am and you can come and go as you please until 9pm. Food will probably be ordered in. We will talk more about that next month.
Sandy brought the project for the night and we all appreciated so much all the hard work she put in to bringing every little thing we needed to work on altering laminate chips. Thanks Sandy!!!
Please bring your finished laminate chips to the next meeting for show and tell since I didn't get around to take pictures of works in progress.
More in a later post about the September meeting.

This is a small denim bag I altered (added fabric flowers with fabric covered buttons and used some strips of Indian sari fabric--silk-- for the stems and leaves). I'll be wearing it at the convention!
Just a reminder for Stampaway convention at the Sharonville convention center this Saturday August 8th--more info here: http://www.stampawayusa.com/
Hope to see everyone Monday at 6:30pm 8/10 for the next ASOM meeting. We'll be doing the laminate chips with Sandy. Details in the last post.
