Greeting Cards With Christine!

Today, Christine and I enjoyed creating the greeting cards seen below!  Christine is a quick learner and learned to master the embossing folder, deckle edge and stamp-painting in no time!!  Here are the greeting cards we made.
Simple and elegant!  The card on the right features "pearls among the swirls" of our embossing.  The second card features an antique-style brad and stamp-painting.

Here is a sneak preview of one of tomorrow evening's  Art  Gallery projects, a gift bag and matching tag.
Lots of scallops and swirls are featured on our white gift bag and tag.  Leave a comment and/or become a follower and  you'll be entered in a drawing for my "blog candy"!

Reindeer Weather! Brrrrr!

Lou Ann and I braved the chilly, damp, cloudy weather on Saturday to demo our creations and to distribute info about Art Gallery classes.  We were warmed by the many friendly folks that stopped by (even the ones asking for directions lol) and the children who were so eager to do a little creating with us!!  Thanks to the hot tea provided by Lou Ann and her welcome and wonderful company, we had a great afternoon!
How cute is this???? Lou Ann's son and his girlfriend with Frosty at The Avenue.

It's That Time of Year!

Wow!  What a fun evening of creativity we had at our first Art Gallery of Viera art cards class.  We made 4 projects in the 2-hour time slot.  We made place cards first and then made a Christmas corner bookmark, a vintage Christmas card and ended the evening with a a crisp red and white gift tag!

I'm looking forward to the next class on December 21!  Lou Ann Weeks, the gallery mosaic artist, and I will demo our designs on Saturday, December 18, from noon until 3 pm at the Avenues of Viera  Live Reindeer Experience.


Beth, Kim and Susan are capable and confident creators!!  Their projects turned out beautifully!  I hope to see you again, gals!!

Here are our projects:  A red and white gift tag, a vintage card and coordinating envelope, and a Christmas themed corner bookmark.
Next Class--Tuesday, December 21, 6-8 pm
Come to relax and create.  We'll create a Christmas gift bag and coordinating card and a birthday card.
There is always chocolate!!
