ATCs & April . . . What A Combo!

Last Thursday evening was the "ATC Workshop & Swap" for April and once again the creativity overflowed!  Each person created fantastic ATCs in their favorite theme, "Bird's Song" or "Steampunk Ladies", and everyone had the opportunity to show off and share their favorite techniques.  It was an almost even split for each theme, and as always, it was amazing to see what everyone came up with!
TOP ROW:  "Rockin' Robin", Charmaine Conway; "Steampunk Lady in Tin ", Janis Bush;
"Bird's Song in Your Heart", Cheryl Wildman; "Steampunk Lady", Sharon Van Dussen;
"Bird Sings A Sweet Melody", Jeanette Lee
MIDDLE ROW: "Steampunk Lady", Charlotte Fern; "Bird's Song", Lyla Hagerty;
"Steampunk Lady", Donna Anderson; "Bird's Song Tiles", Deborah Schinzel;
"Rhythmic Chirps!", Terri Durst
BOTTOM ROW: "Madame Metallurgist", Nicole Durst;
"Tweet Tweedle Lee Dee!", Mimi Lawrence
Come in & check out these & all of the fantastic works of art
in our ever expanding "ATC Gallery"!
For those who missed this month's workshop, make your plans now to join in the fun next month.  Mark your calendars & save the date . . . Thursday, May 9th . . . when the monthly themes will be "Vintage Mother's Day" or "Cook's Choice!*".  Start “thinking big in a small way" and we'll see you then at this fun NO COST workshop.  From experienced to novice . . . you’ll definitely want to see what it’s all about for yourself!  Just create 14 ATCs using the monthly themes . . . all the same or each one different . . . then 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, have fun, and become inspired!
* (Your choice of theme!  Pick your favorite from the past or use a new one . . . whatever goes!)

Remember to save the date . . .
the second Thursday of each month from 6:00pm to 8:00pm . . .
we look forward to seeing you there!
The group is growing, but there's always room for more!

We've got another "Challenge" lined up for May ~ "Altered Puzzle Pieces"!  Create 1  Altered Puzzle Piece for "Show & Tell" and show off your "altering" talents!  Begin with a large puzzle piece (children's puzzles work best) and embellish to your heart's content, so be creative and have fun . . . think outside the box!  No theme to follow, just pure "alterations"!  We hope you'll join us!

Upcoming Months -
    June 13th ~ "Send in the Clowns" or "Games People Play"
   July 11th ~ "Go Fly a Kite!" or "Under the Sea"
    August 8th ~ "Sweets, Cakes & Candy!" or "It's About Time!"

We look forward to seeing everyone at this fun and exciting NO COST workshop! Call (480) 821-3758 for more details or information and let your imaginations & creative juices flow!
(If you can't make the workshop, but still want to take part in the Swaps, call and let us know.  We'll be your "Swapper"!  We'd still love to have you participate!)
