Fiber Arts/ Mixed Media meeting 

Thursday, September 15 from 10:00 am - 12:00 noon

Let's make an inspirational prompt card for our studios/ homes we stamp and collage and hang from a ribbon. Maybe a favorite quote or just a reminder for ourselves to stay present, simplify, create fearlessly, etc.

I will supply glue sticks, rubber stamps and stamp alphabets and some ink pads and a heavy duty punch and decorative punches. I will also bring a couple old books we can tear up for found words. 

Everyone bring a cardboard blank(think old cereal box or coaster, a piece of corrugated or a tag) some paper to collage with and some ribbon or twine. And of course your favorite quote or idea.
