Stamp Antonio Arts is proud to announce its
first Art Journal Exhibition.
This exhibit showcases a year's worth of outstanding work by students in our monthly Art Journal Club, led by Carrie Avery.
The students created collage pages centered around new techniques each month. These pages were added to an "art journal" as both a work of art and a reference of techniques.

Those of you who know me know that October was going to be super crazy for me. One of my little adventures this month was to take a class with Tim Holtz. Amy & Carol generously invited us all to Houston for a trade show put on by a sales group and to take an all day holiday themed Tim Holtz class. I had a great time. Beyond anything else, it was really special for me to sit and create stuff for 5 hours without having to get up and find, cut, clean, rinse things or any other reason than to pee. Everything was there laid out on the table ready to assemble. He was very generous with supplies and extra goodies. He had lots of great tips for his products and also on how to do his style classes within a small time frame. His crew does LOTS of prep work. He's very lucky to have a good stuff that enjoys making up kits.
