Let's join Bentley, my Studio Assistant, to show you some of the fun and colorful art creations.
The artists got to choose from a variety of paints, materials, stamps and stencils to use to create whimsical art.
All of the artists have their own styles - most of my creations have flowers. I painted the pink bicycle on a cork trivet and the garden girl wearing red boots on a cork trivet.
Libby painted a colorful feather and adorable tiny art on tea bags.
Tea bag art.
Marilyn painted a colorful abstract designs.
Linda painted an Eastside art bag to use to store her art supplies in, a whimsical bird inspired by her birthday card, and a colorful face.
A rose petal from my rose bush landed on her bird's head when she put her bag outside to dry which was magical as it was her birthday and several of the artists brought her roses for her birthday.
Jacki is an amazing collage artist and teacher and created a whimsical collage for Linda's birthday - Linda is a jewelry designer and metal artist and the name of her business is Ms Gotrocks! She also created on paper and colorful art bags.
Jody painted the Eiffel tower and a pretty rose on cork that I did not get a photo of.
Diane painted a piece of coral on her art bag.
Norma loves Native American art and her creations reflect her love.Her pot was painted on a cork trivet.
My camera battery gave out as I was taking photos of Sherrill's charming pink bicycle painted on cork and her art bag with turquoise ball jar and paint brushes - sorry Sherrill. - I did get a photo of her creating her pink bicycle - she is smiling artist in the yellow apron!
