November Art Class

This month I drew on a patriotic theme for my artist trading cards. I used one of my favorite graphics from The Graphics Fairy blog of this little patriotic girl, put a die cut star behind her and sponged the edges with blue ink.

These are the cards I received. Some of our members were absent :(.

These are the pages I added to a member's circle journal.

These are the pages that were added to my circle journal for September. Beautiful!

And for October, these pages in my journal included different shades of green cardstock pieces that held definitions of what each shade of green means. I love how each member comes up with such unique and interesting ideas. If you have never been involved in a circle journal exchange, I would highly recommend it!

We made 4 projects this time! One of them was this cookie pocket. This one greeted me at my seat when I arrived at class. It had a delicious cookie packaged inside of it. Our leader is so amazing and good to us!

Here is the one I made.

Then we made a pop-up twist card. I love the car with tree print on the cardstock.

It twists open to hold 4 photos, expressions, or whatever...

We made a gift card folder. This a sample our leader brought with her for demonstration. I haven't finished mine mine yet.

Here are the two she brought with her and how they look folded up.

And finally, we made this "never-ending" or "endless" card. Here is what it looks like before opening it. This one is our leader's card. It looks simple enough...

but then something magical happens! I was given permission to film her demonstration on how to open it. (This will only show up on computers, I think. My iPad will not support this video.)

What a fun class it was!! Next month we will have our Christmas party that will include a pitch-in lunch, exchange of gifts, and the creating of more cool things! Thank you for reading my blog post today!
