March 2013, Color

 The design element for March was Color.  Participating members were: Cynthia, Linda M, Linda J, Linda C, Wanda, Kathy H, Laura, Phyllis, and  Marybeth.

This inspiring group brought samples varying from monochromatic and graduating color values to full color melted crayon creations.

The book New Twist on Strips & Curves by Louisa L Smith was passed around.  Wanda showed a wonderful stripped piece she is working on, and Cynthia hung it from the stairwell so we could all see it in its entirety.  This is a wonderful piece.

Linda C gave a program on her couturier sewing class in San Francisco, and showed several gorgeous pieces she is designing.
She also brought lots of hand-dyed silk scarves, and examples of ice dyeing.

Linda J gave a demo on the many ways to tie and wear scarves.  She needs to write a book about this.

Brooke mentioned the Bozeman Public Library is accepting exhibitions, and this could be a possible venue for our canvas challenge.  Reminder:  The canvas challenge is due at the May meeting.

This was another fun and inspiring meeting. Thank you to all of you for sharing your talent.  Next month our design element is Line.
