1940's Pin-Up Girls

Last night was another fun and successful "ATC Workshop & Swap"!   At each workshop & swap everyone is always so creative in coming up with incredible ATCs, and last night was no exception.  After lots of  laughter and much recounting, it was even decided that the workshop is so successful that next month we need to make 12 cards so each person will leave with a miniature piece of art showing each other's idea of the monthly theme.
This month's theme was "1940's Pin-Up Girls", and once again, it was exciting to see what everyone did . . . from calendar girls to bedroom girls to movie stars, everyone shared their ideas of what it must have been like to be a "Pin-Up Girl" in the '40s.
TOP ROW: "Demure", Charlotte Fern; "Roper", Marti Chavez; "Calendar Girl", Deborah Schinzel
MIDDLE ROW: "Arizona Maid", Melinda Bush; "Reserved" Sharon Van Dussen;

BOTTOM ROW: "Reporting for Duty!", Charmaine Conway; "Ann Sheridan", Lynda Toresdahl;

For those who missed last night's workshop, it's not too early to make your plans now to join us next month.  Mark your calendars now for Thursday, September 13th and start “thinking big in a small way”.  Check out the exciting theme and we'll see you then at this NO COST workshop.  From experienced to novice . . . you’ll definitely want to see what it’s all about for yourself!  Bring a friend or two . . . the more the merrier!  Create 12 ATCs using the monthly theme . . . all the same or each one different . . . and come and share with others in a true workshop atmosphere.  Or just come and see what's going on with other artists, ask questions, share information, and become inspired!
