April 2012

The Parallel Pen was the focus of our April meeting.  Bev showed us how to take the pens apart, right down to removing the nib so that the whole pen can be cleaned.  We then worked on pen manipulation and colour blending. The pen is a versatile tool, it writes with a broad edge and also a fine line.


We also did some dry embossing using metal templates. There just wasn't enough time for us all to do it all!


Looking forward to May when we will go through Joanne Fink's new book 'Zenspirations'. It will be the first of two parts of a program to then each decorate letters on tags to fasten together as a book. We also have a galleria assignment due in May - a quote by either Mark Twain or Oscar Wilde.  Hope we have some good examples to show you here!!

Hi Bev, Where does the group meet now? There are no location/directions on the website that I could find. Am thinking I need a trip to Canada in the near future...
