Caroline is crocheting granny squares to make a bag for her granddaughter.
Jan is making thank you cards for the birthday gifts she received.
Pinky loves making the iris folding cards.
It was a great day! We missed Jan, though.
|Karen's lovely work!|
|Karen busy working!|
|My neighbor, Linda, joined us for the day.|
|Linda is making a crocheted rug out of plastic bags. This is something her grandmother used to do! She will use them throughout her house. This one is going to be a rectangle, mostly white with blue and red intermingled throughout.|
|Mary...what a smile!|
|Mary is working on our ATC challenge. Can't wait to see them next Tuesday.|
|Here's our Pink!!!|
|Pinky's beautiful Iris Folding card. Wonderful!|
|My neighbor, Serena (on right) and her girlfriend, Kitara. They joined us for the day!|
|Serena's artwork! Nice!|
|Kitara's artwork! Lovely!|
|Here is Jan, our instructor for the day. She really knows what she is doing when it comes to painting paper. She is awfully humble, but she was our star for the day! Thanks, Jan, for helping by mixing up all the paints, and testing out all the different spray bottles. You are a gem!|
|Jan's book! WOW, huh? It's been painted and gessoed! Looks pretty cool, doesn't it?|
|Karen is just commenting on how much paint she got on her hands. Hahaha! We were all covered with paint! Color-saturated, you might say!!!|
|I believe this is one of Karen's pages! Doesn't this look great? Great art was created today!!! Great job, Karen!|
|Here is Mary with her paint shirt indoctrinated!!! She's really 'into' it! Lots and lots of painted paper produced by this lovely lady!!!|
|Mary's Raven is beautiful, isn't it? Really nice work, Mary!|
|Here is a different style that Mary made. This is a picture of a bird that is glued onto the face of her painted paper. Nice effect!|
|Pinky is wearing a pretty neat paint shirt that Mary loaded her. Neat, huh? Pinky did a fabulous job with her painted papers. Look below:|
|Pinky's tree is gorgeous! The loviest work yet!!! Nice coloring! She's a natural!|
|This is Pinky's fern. I think it's out of order...but I'm not kidding....I have been on here FOREVER trying to get things in order. SO....please, BEAR WITH ME. |
I LOVE this fern, Pink!!!
These last three are mine. You can probably tell because they are purple and teal. I even tried to do some with 'red' but I couldn't stand it. That color just doesn't 'ring my bell' like these do. I mean....really....how can you go wrong, "I ax ya"... (a little My Cousin Vinny movie reference) with purple and teal.
|Here is Jan taking a 'time out' from all her own painting . (I think she might have been the one to leave a little paint on the deck....not that I'm tattle-taling, or anything.) :oP|
|We took our lunch break out on the deck in the shade. We all brought our own lunch, but also enjoyed all the yummy snacks that Karen provided. She even had WATERMELON. It was delicious! Thanks for the marvelous digs, Karen!!!|
