Art Journaling Meetup

At our fourth Friday meetups, you are welcome to work on the group project or work on your own project. So, bring your art journal, gluebook, or altered book project and supplies. These sessions are very relaxed, and a good time to share techniques or ask questions.

So I guess I am stuck on face, hand and body silhouettes right now.

Above is a project I am working on. I've cut out a handprint from a piece of vellum that I was using to practice calligraphy, and I am doodling/tangling around another handprint. I thought I would eventually add some color, ephemera, etc.

If anyone wants to participate in this project at our meet up, please feel free to join me.

I will try to post a progress photo this weekend as I

WORK WITH MY HANDS!!! (can I have a rim shot?)

I would love to see one of you do something similar out of cloth or other material......  yarn.....   colored thread....... ?????

    I will not be able to attend this time, but I will definitely work on this project. I have had this idea of creating "hamsas" (a palm-shaped amulet believed to provide defense against evil eye) after I saw a wall painted at the House of Blues.

      How funny---I've been drawing hamsas this week that are sort of garden inspired.

    Sorry I missed our last meet up at Googly Eyes. I was down and out with something. Feeling better this week. Keep me posted on what is going to happen. I like the info below by Jody Moore regarding Angels and Moore. That sounds interesting.

    Linda & Cathy ~
    Christina and I went to Angels & Moore craft night last night in Irving. They have a Craft Night the 1st & 3rd of each month. I told them about our group. She said that if you two are interested they would be our meeting place for the 2nd & 4th Friday nights for us. They stay open until 11 and the lady who runs it has her husband there. He makes sure we get in our cars. They no longer charge for people to come. There is enough room for us.
    I didn't let Cathy know, but Christina and Kathy are unable to attend during the days.
    I would be more than glad to talk to her about the arrangements or you can call. They are a great group of people.

      Thanks for the info Jody, I was wondering how Evelyn's Craft Nights were going. I haven't had a chance to go. Did she have a knitting class that met at the same time?
