August 2011 Meeting: Getting Creative with Mixed Media

You probably know the polymer clay aisle by heart — but have you explored the possibilities the rest of the craft store has to offer? **April Gregory** has generously offered to share some of the interesting supplies she’s come across in her job designing projects for Hobby Lobby. She will be bringing lots of supplies for us to play with, and she’ll teach us how to use them with polymer clay as well as how to alter them to better fit our needs. Some of the things she plans to talk about include:
* Changing the color of jewelry findings
* Layering findings
* Embossing on metal and leather
* Using supplies like Mod Podge, Shrinky Dinks, Rub n Buff, and embossing powder
Our meeting will be held Saturday, August 13, 2011, from 1:30-4:30, at the Hobby Lobby on I-35 and South 19th in Moore (2650 Service Road, Moore, OK 73160).
**Supplies to bring**
This meeting won’t be project-based, so there’s not a specific supply list. April will be bringing some supplies of her own for us to experiment with, and she encourages you to bring some clay and whatever other mixed media supplies you’ve been wanting to play with. This will be a fun time for sparking creativity and thinking outside of the box — or at least thinking outside of the polymer clay aisle!
**Swap Theme**
This month we’re also doing a swap with the theme “**Switch Plate Cover**” Use the techniques we learned at the last meeting, or come up with your own idea. Everyone who wishes to participate should bring one handmade item that fits with the theme.
