What a lovely morning in a magic garden at the Zook Cafe today! Thanks to our hosts the iced drinks were perfect and the food yummy - the conversation and sharing of our journals was terrific! If you are looking for a really nice spot for a true adventure journal experience check this place out. They are located in the Highlands neighborhood in Denver, part of the wonderful Puppet Theater space. Susanna shared a way to create unique stamps/prints using craft foam, for more info check out Clothe, Paper, Scissors web site. A few of the participants mentioned the need for a "sketching for journal pages" class - I am working on dates and location for an August workshop so please check back in a few weeks (workshop page). Our next meet-up will be in Niwot in July; join us! (all the details on the workshop page)
What a glorious day at Long's Gardens in Boulder, CO. Even though the weather was freezing and rainy yesterday a few intrepid journal artists gathered for a lovely morning in the gardens (a much warmer day for sure). Thanks to the owner, we were welcomed to wander, sketch and enjoy the property. Even though the irises were not completely in bloom the poppies were out, the deer appeared and the old tractors and trucks were delightful. I shared some of the fun spray walnut inks and we had a good time getting some pages done with the inspiration of this place. Thanks to the Longmont ABCD ladies, Dixie, Jenn and Tracey..it was a great spot to share together!
