The one about last night

Everyone needs an art group.
Everyone needs an art group like mine!
This was my second time with my new friends. A bunch of local mixed-media artists who meet up once a week to have dinner and play. I totally blew my diet.

Most of us bought Vintage Milk Paint from Kathy who did a demo and showed us how cool this stuff really is to use in mixed media! Julie, the bargain junk shopping queen, is going to use the milk paint as a final layer on the neatest vintage box she made. It is full of small pieces of spring-y artwork. Can't wait to see it again!

For June, Candice is putting together an art retreat in Park City with one of the classes taught by Misty Mawn! I'll be at Sparkle Bella that same time, but there are still spots available for more than just our small group. More info to come.

Last night's project was address books. We all brought an altered book or sketch book that we passed around to add artwork and our contact info. Here are the two entries into my book.

Of course, we didn't finish and will be doing it again next month. Yeah!
I didn't finish my cover but here is what I have so far.

what cool stuff you have going on your blog! did you change the background color? everything feels like spring.

i love the pictures you posted. i wondered how to post the address book pages without posting addresses and phone numbers, you came up with the perfect solution! can't wait to see your cover finished and have you do a page in my book.

happy day i saw you on lilias blog and now you are in our art group!

Oh, what a wonderful idea. How nice to have a local group to play with. This book reminds me that I need to spend more time with my art journal. I'm a much better artist when I'm journaling. Not sure why, but it's true. Maybe I'll think about why, then blog about it!
