Kansas in November

Just returned home from Kansas to be apart of the Kansas National Watercolor Society Reception in Wichita. My hubby and I had a delightful, fun weekend touring the Wichita  Center for the Arts, Wichita Art Museum and the Indian Museum. Shopping in 20 something degree weather was a new experience ....layers and layers of clothing......

We all used Jane LaFazio's leaves and pods stencils from Stencil Girl Products for our creations. Take a look at each Artist's Blog listed at the end of my post.......

Jane's Pods stencil...I used a mix of red and gold acrylic paint
 Masa paper with acrylic, watercolor ...all stitched up with recycled sari ribbons

 Gold acrylic paint was used here with Jane's Eucalyptus stencil

 The Masa paper was soaked in water, crinkled and FW Burnt Umber Ink was added
 while the paper was wet. I also painted some of the leaves and pods with watercolors.
 Our theme was Gratitude...

Have fun Hopping!
