Meeting Minutes 10 Sept 2019
Colorful Expression with Lynn Friedberg
Welcome & Announcements:
**Kimmi, Candy, and Lynn showed us what they will be teaching during the retreat using what we already have on hand! Kimmi will teach us how to repurpose all sorts of items for giving gifts. Candy will show us how to use cereal boxes to make art journals, and Lynn will show us how to make a one of a kind print using acrylics.
**Reservations fare being accepted now for the Guild Retreat at the Hideaway this year. The amount we pay is ½ of the cost, with the guild picking up the remainder of the tab. Please see the detailed email Candy sent out for all the info regarding the retreat.
**We have agreed to letter bookmarks for Cottonwoods First Friday on Oct 4 from 5-8 PM. Lonnie, Kimmi, Sherry, and Lynn will bring their own supplies.
**Elma is in rehab for a recent surgery to remove a pituitary gland tumor. Please send cards to her house as an encouragement to her.
**The guild purchased 3 books for the library by Julian Waters, a Herman Zaph book (and 2 smaller ones of the same book, similar topic) and one of letters between his parents called Rising Waters.
Show & Share:
**Nancy showed a traveling journal she made using laminated double-sided paper as the cover.
**Lynn had a nice exemplar of Uncial for us to use to practice letters with a broad edged C-1 or C-0 pen. She was using this as a springboard to add color to a variety of words we chose to illustrate mood and attitude. There were strips of paper to letter on and use for the inside of a folded accordion book. She suggested we could assemble them at the retreat since we wouldn’t have time during the monthly meeting.
