Hail Hail the gangs all here, well almost...

A million years ago I decided to get back to painting. This is the great group of ladies that allowed me the honour of painting with them. We've gone on to scrap together and most recently do some serious card making. There was a lull for a few years there where we each in tern attended to pressing family matters, or travelled to outrageous parts of the world and didn't do the Wed/Thurs. painting, but we are almost all united again. Welcome back "Splatters".

It looks like we all did the same thing here, but the scene was Tuscany with an spray of poppies each one came out slightly different. Good times.

I'm the splatter second from the right in the poppy photo

We all then stayed and enjoyed our traditional egg salad sandwiches and did the card making session as well. Missing from our photo is Louise and Lynn who were away at appointments, and our Team Leader Leslie, she's doing Yoga. Now in the photos we have a few other ladies who were not part of the splatters but we let them stay. I'm kinda proud of where we've come to this year, no teacher, this was an independent adventure, now I say that after we all stood around Louise and watched her do the technique. But we had a very very limited sketch for Tuscany and just a quicky outline for the poppies and then baby we were on our own. Way to go splatters.

What fun! It's probably nice getting together even if creativity never takes place, but those Tuscany scenes are really quite lovely. Which Splatter girl are you?

Great to see the old gang! That piece is a nice departure from the old days. It is very interesting to see everyone doing things a little differently!

Say hi to all for me.
