End of September Pot Luck including GPP Crusade No. 44
In a sense, I have been. The September Green Pepper Press Crusade challenged us to prepare a journal page by scraping on paint. I often use a palette knife, but an old credit card makes a wonderful tool.
This time I also used some unused plastic dividers from a storage tray... you know, the kind found in the fishing tackle section of the big box store. I buy them to store beads.
I really didn't have a lot of time to spend on this crusade. Good thing it was simple. I started with paint colors I was considering for some "serious" art. That decision served me well. I was hoping to replicate a color mixture that I had used previously. The teal color wasn't turning out as I expected.
I've only shown my "official" crusade page, but I scraped paint more simply in another journal to use up the paint.
The lighting was less than optimal for this flat on shot, but you can see the variety of marks that I could make with my little scrapers. I wonder what Michelle Ward will challenge us to do next?
Snus Hill Winery in Central Iowa. Since we will be indoors, it will be a great day to shop for art and taste some wine.
More ATCs for this event (which will make them ACEOs). Names. I will be following up soon with replies from my previous post.
And just in case that wasn't enough, I've been in rehearsals with our church choir. We will be part of a mass choir (nearly 200 singers!) singing with Simon Estes on Sunday, October 10th at 3:00 at Cornerstone Church in Ames, Iowa.
The proceeds of the concert will benefit Habitat of Humanity in Story County. Our choir is joining the high school choirs from across the county to perform beautiful music. Mr. Estes is a world renown bass/baritone. If you are in the area, this will be a treat for your ears.
Well, I better get back to preparing for this coming Sunday!
