Our project for this month will be taught by our president, Teresa Thiel. She will show us how to paint greeting cards using an acrylic paint and alcohol technique with appliques. This is a project where everyone will all use the same techniques...but each card will be unique! Each person will receive a packet that will include supplies of greeting cards with envelopes, appliques, yarn, buttons and cutouts to make 2 cards. Come prepared with a sponge brush no larger than 1" wide and a cheap brush to use for splattering and you will be sure to have an afternoon of fun, fellowship and creativity!! This cost will be $6.00.

These pillowcases were painted at our March meeting for the members of the Decorative Artist of Western Nassau as a Pay it forward gesture.
After Hurricane Katrina we were adopted by the Cactus Wren chapter from AZ. One of the things they did for us was painted pillowcases.
