JOC November 09 Show #2

Since I'll be busy at the Ben Franklin Kahului Craft fair tomorrow, thought I'd post this today...
The Holidays are definitely here! On our second November show, we brought back our favorite One Stroke Certified Instructor, Frank Dumlao. He showed us his technique for painting beautiful poinsettias on a charger plate.

Charger plates are great for tablescaping or even just hanging on the wall, especially when they are painted so beautifully. I'm always amazed at how easy Frank makes it look. I'm a OSCI, too, but I just can't wiggle like Frank!

Next, we have Diane Morinaka, our favorite floral designer. She creates a fun wreath in our "Ho Ho Holiday" theme.

Notice how there isn't a bow on the wreath? Instead the "Ho Ho Ho" sign and colorful ball ornaments create the focal interest.

Our last guest is always FIRST on our minds when we think of great stamping ideas. Cheryl Miyashiro created an easy gift card holder, perfect for this season of giving!

Cheryl used Hero Arts Christmas Clear Designs for her project. She even shares some of her tips on how to add color to your stamped designs faster.

Hope that you are all enjoying the Holidays as I know you're all busy making so many handmade and heartfelt gifts and cards for your families and friends. Take care and remember to take time out for yourself!Happy Holidays and Happy Crafting!
