Just a quick post to share a gift collection I created for a friend who loves music and birds. The blue jay and magnolia blossom were colored using markers inspired by all those back-to-school supplies. The music notes were created by embossing a brown piece of cardstock that had a blue core. Once the notes were embossed, I used sand paper to bring out the blue...messy but fun. The jewelry set pieces are of Italian brass that has been embossed with a bird motif. I painted on a patina in a variety of blue tones and then sanded down to reveal the embossed images once dry. A clear protective glaze was added last to keep from tarnishing. I hope she enjoys them.
A few STC updates....
Thanks again to everyone for a very successful Learnshop fundraising event. I am thrilled to report that we have been asked to participate (for the first time) in the winter learnshop continuation called 12 Days of Christmas. I will share more as we get closer to the event.
One of my mixed-media canvas pieces was accepted for the Artisan Center exhibit CAPTURING THE ART OF SPORT. This juried exhibit will run from August 31 - February 22 and gives STC another venue for fundraising and sharing our mission.
We started the planning for the October 19th Breast Cancer Awareness event supported by our Power2Give campaign contributors. Lots of enthusiasm and excitement already.
The Madison County Breast Cancer Support Group invited us to woman an STC booth at the Women's Wellness event scheduled for November.
As you can see, we are headed for a busy time of out reach! Hope you will join us!
