Friday I met my art pals Kelley and Karen for lunch at 111 Maine. It was a great lunch and we planned our Art Day that we had yesterday. I was really happy because they had a GREAT vegetarian dish and soup that I ordered - we all enjoyed our lunch!
On Monday when Karen and Kelley came over we decided to have dessert first...because Karen had brought us a delicious chocolate pudding cake and ice cream. It was still warm from the oven!! Here's Kelley having a panic attack over her cake :-)
Here's Karen enjoying every moment of her cake. Luckily no one took pictures of me licking up the pudding that fell on the counter!
We made hand-stitched art journals....it took a few minutes to get the hang of the stitching, even though Karen was a great teacher....I had a hard time with the first two or three signatures but after that everything came together. I still have a little bit to do, but overall I'm pretty happy with how it came out. I used white muslin on the cover and painted it with Gesso so I can paint or collage or do what ever I want on it and it'll remain sturdy. Inside is a mixture of watercolor and drawing papers. I'm planning on taking it on our summer vacation in July.
