art sisters



a few weeks ago i received an invite
to my friends ludgera's
"art sisters birthday party"
three of us were celebrating our "39th" birthday!!
it was a fab U lous party
12 artists hanging out
eating, drinking and making art!


we all took a "vow"
"what happens at art sisters , stays at art sisters "
( our real ages and who had "non" virgin drinks"

lugera, hope and myself all b-day girls
daniza, martha, christina , susan v. and
katie ( the twisted sister, back right!)


everyone hard at work
there was some amazing work going on
it was fun to each interpretation of the same photo
what a talented bunch
so inspiring to be around all this creative energy

some of my altered photos
i spent most of my time walking around the room
admiring all the fantastic work
i learned a few new tricks,
thanks martha for the staz-on resist technique!

presents galore!!!
OMG!!!! i was so blessed and
i was overwhelmed by every gift
handmade cards and art,
the background is a silk scarf from paris,
just beautiful, i might have to make it into a halter top
an antique book, 1893, with lots of images to scan
encaustic wax and dry artist pigments
along with a huge piece of barn board
( it will look great covered with wax and metal)
bezels, felt flower, hand cream, pencils, canvas and paper
a lavender sachet, my favorite scent,
with a beautiful angel sewn on top
and a bottle of henkell
(which will be enjoyed during a bubble bath!)

this was the best birthday party, EVER

thanks girls !!!

What a wonderful post! I'm going to bookmark it so that I can relive the day.
Thank you for your altered photo workshop too. You've inspired me to start working on my own photos.
Happy Birthday!
