Art and Soul, Gift

Art and Soul was as great this year as it was last year. I had 4 good classes with excellent teachers. If you ever get the chance to attend, be sure to go. My first class was with Doris Arndt and was called Ebb and Flow. We used things to texture book covers, then used them as printing plates to stamp papers we had painted for the inside. What a good way to tie the whole thing together. We also learned the pocket.
Art and Soul was wonderful, but the week was a challenge. The dog had surgery. DH who was supposed to take care of him came down with the stomach flu and was up every night. My friend who was going lost her husband. Just when I was at a low ebb look what came from Sueb What a good friend. I love the postal look to it and will enjoy using it.

it looks like you had wonderful fun at the workshops, and it was probably just what you needed.

Love the texture on that book cover. Did you use molding paste? I'm glad Jake and DH are doing well. Love that litle green and blue quilt too. You've been busy!
