We used recycled greeting cards
to work with for this gathering.
Some were full size and
some were made smaller with torn edges.
Gold, green and red doilies
could be added for dimensions.
Dangles of bells and vintage buttons
were also added.
And a simple project
can't go wrong with glitter.
Materials were also set up so that the cards
could be chosen to use as a tip-in
and highlight a verse for Bible Journaling.
These young crafters came as a group
after early dismissal from school.
They had a lots of fun
and wanted to know the date
of the next gathering.
The project used 5 by 7 canvas
that they either dry brush painted with acrylic paint
or used Distress stain to add color to the canvas.
Make sure and do the sides.
Hymn verses, ribbon and tagboard image
and cardstock completed a project here.
the "Findings Room"
The canvas project makes a great "shelf sitter"
or they can be hung on a wall.
My friend Bonnie Hughes
did up three projects trying different techniques.
This one has glimmer background.
Watercolor and the edges of the cards
have been highlighted with distress inks.
Crumpled Tissue paper
with blue watercolor added.
Eve and Leah used this creative time to make their
Counting Gifts and Prayers by the Month Journal.
All in one sketchbook.
All in one place.
Prepared to see His Goodness.
Leah came with her "charge".
This sweet little girl
was the youngest attending.
She got some pampering
and lots of oohs and ahhh.
Somehow I always miss getting
photos of all who grace our door.
A take a breath moment in Advent to stop,
and just let all that "to-do" list vanish.
