December meeting

We’re meeting from 1:00-4:00 on Monday, Dec. 11 at the upstairs Library conference room.  At our November meeting, we decided to have a holiday celebration together with Christmas treats and a card exchange.  If you plan to attend, sign up for a holiday treat by emailing Diana or Beth, and let us know if you’d like to be a part of the card exchange. 

Afterwards, we’ll have our regular meeting so if you can’t join us at 1:00, please come at our regular meeting time at 2:00.  This will be the sixth meeting in which we work on a long-term project exploring design elements with watercolors and monoline lettering. This month we’ll be working with the uncial lettering style on the Monoline Alphabets sheet, so be sure to bring this handout, and the Paper Ruler guide, to the meeting.  Bring at least two micron pens, one that is small like a .005 or 1.0 and one that is heavy, like a 5.0 or 8.0.  Also bring an embossing tool, if you have one.  If not, I have several that you can use.

If you’re joining us for the first time, please let us know you’re coming and Diana will have copies of the handouts available for you.

Also, please bring your finished pages from our previous meetings. It’s always fun to see what everyone has done.  It was great to see all the varied designs on your pages at the November meeting.

Supplies to bring:

  • The two handouts you received at June’s meeting
  • A lengthy quotation that fits your theme
  • 6 x 9 watercolor paper
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Micron Pens, Black, in varying sizes .005-10.0
  • Board, masonite or hard cardboard
  • Embossing tool, optional
  • Light-tack masking tape (artist’s tape, or blue or purple painter’s tape)

We will not be painting so you can leave your watercolors at home.  We will emboss and letter.

As always, please bring anything else you’re working on or finished recently. We always want to see what creative things you’ve been up to whether it’s fiber, collage, stitching, painting or lettering.
