Meeting Minutes 12 Feb 2013
Welcome & Announcements:
We welcomed 3 new faces as each one explained how she found us!
Angie is lettering about 250 wedding invitations for a friend and asked if anyone recommended a good printer in town.
Cecelia announced this year’s meeting themes through August. March-Ruling Pen (Sherry passed a sheet around if anyone wanted to order nibs/pens from Paper & Ink.), April-Uncial, May-assemble cupcake tiers, June-conference decorations (if needed) or book making, July-stuffing Goodie Bags/Potluck, August-Annual Picnic & Celebration.
Show and Tell:
Kimmi showed us the kinds of glassware we are encouraged to start collecting from area thrift stores to create the cupcake tiers we’ll use at conference. Please keep to clear glass or white porcelain (with maybe a touch of turquoise/tan) candy dishes, candlesticks, salt and pepper shakers, etc. We’ll assemble them in TJ’s garage for our May meeting.
Leslie showed us how we could decorate the three/four sheets of 90# watercolor paper she gave each of us using troweling tools, sponges, brushes, wire, etc with water and walnut ink. There were accent colors people brought in turquoise/blues. Once we covered our paper with ink, we swirled and painted, spritzed and sprayed color, and created cover papers for the One Day Vendor fliers that will go in each Goodie Bag. Thanks for all your help gals (and Jim!). Those who finished early and brought their own paper were free to create while the papers were drying.
