November 2007

Our November meeting had us working on more ATC's (Artist Trading Cards). Some of us were making refrigerator magnets for gifts, some were making cards, others were just building our ATC stash so we can trade. Several of us brought finished ones to show off! Here is a picture of the ATC's that are done.

Sandy O is very prolific and here are some of hers

Some more of Sandy's

Some of the other's

and some more

And Linda K was wearing an adorable doll pin she made

Linda J had continued to explore the Flower Pounding technique we worked on in October. She did much more pounding, using the last of the fall color in her yard on cotton and muslin treated with Alum. She found the muslin seemed to work the best at absorbing the flowers and leaves' color. She then took a permanent black fabric marker and outlined her results. Very stunning!

A detail.

The weather has turned nasty cold here and Thanksgiving brought our first snow of the year (as usual), I hope it won't interfere with our next meeting - we are going to play with Spirit Wards from the latest issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors!
