July BAC meeting
The next Book Arts Connection meeting will be on Saturday, July 19th.
It will be held at Virginia Gardner's home, and Janet Takahashi will
be our guest. Janet will show us how to make a "Bay Window Card" that
she has developed. It's a folded card, upon opening would make ideal
invitations, hold a specific message, highlight artwork or a photograph.
Along with this card, Janet will show us a nifty technique of simple
foil embossing that creates images that can be used on the cover of a
card or book. She'll have many samples to show us as well as some of
her own work.
TO BRING: The usual desktop bookbinding tools, cutting mat, glue and
brush, pencil, ballpoint pen, tracing paper, card stock, decorative
papers, masking tape, glue stick and about a yard of 1/4" ribbon to
tie up our wonderful projects.
It sounds as if we're going to have some really terrific ideas
shooting around our heads! Here are the directions to Virginia's:
Exit #101 on Mission and go East, toward the Mts. for about 8 blocks.
Turn LEFT on Garden St. Her house is the 2nd one, #2014. There's a
famous metal dog out in front to greet us.
I hope you all will be able to come. Bring stuff to show-and-tell -
whatever you're working on lately, news of exhibitions, internet finds
or whatever you want to share. I'm hoping I'll be able to announce the
inaguration of our website then, too!
