Art weekend in Fredericksburg

The mixed media club and Altered Book class met at Libertytown in Fredericksburg, VA http://www.libertytownarts.com/ this month. Check out their website. It's a great place for local artists.

The mixed media club discussed some upcoming local call for artists and the demo this month was on how to use a wacom tablet http://wacom.com/intuos/ I got lots of ideas on how I can remake my collage cards using the wacom tablet.

In the Altered book meeting we learned about making pockets and using crumpled magazine paper and alcohol inks to make background papers. We also exchanged books. The book I’m working in has the theme Excavation of the Muse or Soul. We have about a month to do two spreads one using pockets and one using the crumpled paper. I'll post photos when the spreads are done.
