May Art Class

There are always 3 parts to our monthly art class: swapping artist trading cards, sharing the pages we made for a circle journal and making a project.

Here are artist trading cards I received from my friends. Since we made envelopes with the Envelope Punch Board last month, our trading cards reflected what we learned from that. So our trading cards this month were little envelopes with notes inside.

Make It/Take It: Thanks Mom!

Last evening I attended a craft event at the local library. It was to make this spinning photo cube for Mother's Day. We were told to bring 4 photos that were 3 3/8 inches square. Of course I waited until the last minute to find my photos. So I got out a box of random photos and found 4 oldies but goodies. They seemed to coordinate well together so I decided to give them a try. Also, they were already 3 3/8 inches square. That's the size that photos used to be when I was a kid. 

Here I am in the 70s with my little sister 8 years younger than me. Isn't she adorable?

What is Gamsol?

I'm a bit behind on posting what we've been doing in my monthly art class. We created this framed layered flower in our March art class.
