Although, the weather has been up, down, and all around lately, the weather was lovely for the Transit Traders meeting. 10 Artists met, 9 traded.
Linda proposed that we meet for lunch before the next meeting. Please check your email for details. Jenn shared details about Adventures in Stamping, a 2-day convention in Akron, Ohio in April. The same organization also has a 1-day convention in October.
Jenn collected more greeting cards for the Mental Health Awareness Project.
Artists participated in the Blind Color Trades for May - Orange and June - Green. Each person put their ATC in a bag and then each person selected one out of the bag.
Then, Artists traded Pocket Pages. It is so neat to see how each one evolves!
Brenda brought a new product to the group for the Demonstration and Workshop : Nuvo Gliding Flakes. Thank you Brenda!
Step 1: Stamp an image on cardstock using Versamark ink
Step 2: Sprinkle Heat & Stick Powder on the image
Step 3: Apply the Gilding Flakes onto the image
Step 4: Press down lightly to make sure it is covered
Step 5: Brush away using scrub brush sponge
|Brenda mixed the colors in a container, which she also uses for storage|
After applying the flakes, use this scrub brush to remove the excess

Voila! A multi-colored metallic embossed image!
