Round Robin Art Journal Retreat Weekend

this is how the dining room table looked for 2 days

Once upon a time ( last weekend) 5 women, 2 dogs and a myriad of art supplies, snacks and wine all met up two hours out of town, up in the mountains at the Studio M Annex. It was time to get away from the everyday, to create some art and have a few laughs. And for the camaraderie- most artists work alone, so it's always nice to get together with some other creatives and share ideas.

 Here were the rules- we had 30 minutes each to create a background for our journal page or substrate. A 10 minute break then pass to the next person to add to it.

The 4th artist in the line up was Jaki

and then Nancy got to leave her mark.

These are the other 4 finished pieces-they are all wonderful and they all have our marks.

After our day of "playing" with the art materials we all walked to dinner at the local bar owned by a couple of women from Alaska and had some great fish and chips. Dinner was followed by a brisk walk back and a viewing of one of my favorite movies "Moulin Rouge" followed by "Rock of Ages." Thanks to Marianne for putting this all together and sharing her Studio M Annex with us.
