Whimsical Lettering

This meeting we brought out art journals and did some fun lettering. These two are Cindy's

This one is Peggy's. She brought a book on whimsical Lettering and we all had fun finding some inspiration. 

This one is Vickie's. She drew the bunny and filled him in with stippling! 

And lastly mine. I took a page at random from an old dictionary. I loved the two words of the headers Out rage and Overcome. 
I got to play with my new Posca paint markers. Very fun.

Cindy Cooksey at SJMQT

This is Cindy. I just came back from a driving trip up north with my husband, with the purpose of getting me to an artists' reception at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles this past Sunday. I have a quilt in an exhibit called "Tasty Too!."
There is a concurrent exhibit called "Metamorphosis: Clothing and Identity." It is an amazing collection that I highly recommend seeing. I took a photo of a sweater made by Kaffe Fassett, but there is much more to see.
I took a photo of the crowd in the reception room. The woman in the red vest is Yvonne Porcella. Both exhibits run through April 27, so if you get the chance, go and see them!

First Friday Valentines Day Party!

Peggy brought so much Valentine stuff to make cards, and hangars.  Vickie (who had not talked to Peggy first) brought the same examples of these darling, vintage cards & hangars.  How serendipitous! 

Here we are having fun with ribbon, paper, lace, etc.  

 One table wasn't enough for all the stuff we had.  There was also a counter full & two small nesting tables in use here too 
 Here are Peggy's Cards
 Here are Joanell's cards
 And Miss Vickies 

I was making fabric heart shaped yo-yo's. 
I was also working on getting a small work finished for Leslie Riley's Art Call  due on 2/15.  

Girl Scout cookies were had and gummie bears! 

Fabulous company and a wonderful art filled evening! 
We are missing Miss Cindy who is off gallivanting with her visiting family!
