Edmonton Calligraphic Society offered their free fun day for members which I took in, and our 1st project was to decorate these canvas Pen & Brush Holders. Was that EVER fun!

Jackie Doll sewed each one of these up ahead of time for us (thank you, Jackie...mine alone would've taken me all day) and all we had to do was throw the paint on!
We used liquid acrylics; Dr.Martin's worked the best for lettering with nibs, and I used cheapie folk art acrylics for most of the rest, along with the flourish stamps from Quietfire Designs, ttp://
stamped onto the same paint, which we mixed & spread out on yogurt lids.
It was SO exciting!
Now I must finish our 2nd project, which was a decorated storage cube made from CD Cases.
This is a view of the back of the penholder.

Hey Francie, very nice. Looks like you had a blast. I know I did when Christine Ahmad came down here, I think in Feb for a one day class where we had a blast painting unprimed canvas either flat or on totes and stuff.
PS How come you put Quietfire as a dot com instead of a dot ca, since we are Canadians... BIG GRIN??
Have a great day
