This weekend I took three fun classes in Princeton, Indiana with Sally Lynn MacDonald of Inky Heart: Copic Markers 101 – What? How? & WOW!; Glimmer Mist Techniques: Haunted Shadows album; and Clearly Capable – aka ‘Let No Surface Remain UnInked’ – Fall Theme.

You will have to stay tuned for pictures at a later date because we didn't have time to finish our projects. However, it was a lot of fun!

There is a great little store there caller Paper Chase Arts, too. I found tons of cool things that no one seems to carry here in the Indianapolis area.

I also met Tammy Tutterow of Fairy Davis briefly. I really like her website -- tons of free vintage images for use in your artwork!

And speaking of vintage, I coerced my lovely husband (who also graciously drove me to and from my classes) into going to the antique mall while we were there. I gave him a list of things I was looking for, and he did just great:

--a big jar of buttons,
--a 1951 Winston Dictionary for Schools,
--four sets of vintage sheet music dating 1924-1925,
--three blank postcards, and
--two postcards with 1 cent stamps dating 1944 and 1947

I wish more people would check out Artist Class. I am really happy that I was asked to participate. There are tons of fun projects besides my digital ATC's including:

--a cake made out of books and covered with vintage lace
--a memory album from a vintage record album book with lots of pockets for souvenirs
--a pretty fabric-lined box for storing treasures
--one-of-a-kind rings from discarded vintage earrings, shoe buckles, and buttons
--altered vintage keys to use in assemblage work and as charms and pendants
--a Voodoo heart box
--an altered tin and gift tags
--sweet paper doll dresses
