Lollipop Time!

It is Fall - my favorite time of year.  We went to the park this weekend and took some cute shots of the kids.  Our friend Suzanne took some terrific shots.  These are the versions we took. My daughter took the portrait of her brother.

Mounting Adhesive Part II

A while back I received a roll of mounting adhesive.  I FINALLY started using it and am loving it.  The product is 3M's Positionable Mounting Adhesive.  It works like a dream for delicate or thin papers.  The adhesive comes in a roll that you unravel.  The item you want to adhere is placed (side up!) on the roll and cut out.   You then rub the back side of the item on a special paper with a special utensil (all included with the roll.)  Now you take off the backing and attach it.  If you don't like the position pick it up and try again.  It is repositionable until you rub down the front side.

The cover looks much smoother than ones I created using PVA.  There is no time wasted waiting for glue to dry.  This is a great product!

Art on the Avenue Wrap Up

I had so much fun at Art on the Avenue!  I caught up with old friends and neighbors plus the weather was fantastic.  It was a pleasure to spend the day outside.  Suzanne captured some moments from the day on this video:

Art on the Avenue Saturday October 4th

I am excited to be at my local Craft Fair this Saturday, October 4th.  Art on the Avenue is the big event in the Del Ray section of Alexandria.  Mount Vernon Avenue is closed to traffic and the whole area becomes a giant pedestrian paradise.  Here are a few pictures of things I will be bringing with me on Saturday:
