Paper Arts Club Post Meeting Notes

Our meeting last night was so much fun and full of creative card techniques.  The card shown above is what I call my version of "McKenzie Childs" look with all the mixed up designs pulled into one card.  The strawberry was my favorite part that we paper pieced!  We stamped the Unity strawberry on the reverse side of the red dotted paper and cut it out, sanded the edges and mounted with foam tape.  The green stem was stamped on green cardstock and then stamped "again" with the Hero security envelope stamp to add texture.  The cutie ltitle bug is by Stampendous and papers by Crete Paper.
We also made the facial tissue flowers pocket.  For those of you who follow me on Paper Craft Planet, that was my 3d project this week that I hosted and it was fun to re-create it with a live audience.  Our third card was a fun layered brownkraft card that we colored with water color pencils and then added glittery elements.
Next month's meeting is Wed., July 27th.  Our swap theme is birthday using my new fav color:  ORANGE!
Have a great upcoming month and be sure to save time for paper crafting!
