Tomorrow (Friday) is Play Day at Art 'n Soul. If you don't have a project of your own to work on, we hope you'll join us to make One Layer Cards. Sue has been making samples to share with you. One Layer Cards can be as simple or as difficult as you want to make them. Let's share, play and learn how to make these One Layer Cards pop! Please bring your own supplies, i.e., basic class kit and card stocks, inks, pens, paper trimmer, etc. There is a supply of card stock at Art 'n Soul that you may purchase, as well as a supply of A2 Cards from Memory Box in various colors. You might want to bring your score board, too, because Sue is also showing how to use score lines for added dimension to your card design.

Please stop in anytime between 10:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. I plan to be there in the morning and I can't wait to play! Mike and Dianne are also planning to stop in.

On the Gelli Arts® blog site, they're showcasing the new smaller Gelli Plates, 3"x5" and 5"x7". They look like wonderful sizes to work with, especially when you don't want to make huge sheets that will only be cut down to card or tag size.

Bianca van Noort, a member of the Magenta Design Team, used 3 Magenta stamps to make this lovely card. I really like how she juxtaposed the daisy stamp image with the bubbles stamp image.

Dina Kowal is always doing something new on the Inchie Arts' art boards. In this posting, she is using the black Inchie Squares and Art Boards that are solid black through the core, front to back, because it is made from the black of the ebony tree.  Learn all about that and how Dina created this . . .

Interesting reading . . .

In this week's weekly email to the Art 'n Soul mailing list, Dianne has another watercolor technique to share and how to successfully use a stamp positioner.
