More Awesome Alcohol Ink - A fundraiser for The Cure!

This is an image I borrowed from my friend, Janice Brown, our president at Ajax Creative Arts.

Hello my friends!  Sorry for such a long lapse, but a lot has been going on.  There have been art shows, demos, preparing for exhibits and shows, workshops AND another alcohol ink workshop with a twist!  This time it was organized as a fundraiser for the "CIBC Run for The Cure".

Once again, the class was taught by my friend Margaret Brackley who was approached by her friend Veronica, who is a glass artist, about possibly doing a fundraiser.  Margaret kindly agreed and our club, Ajax Creative Arts donated the facility and their portion of the workshop proceeds.  Everything was organized by Margaret and Veronica.  Many thanks to Veronica's team, as well!

What a fantastic response!  We had 21 ladies in the class, which is all we could accommodate, and a waiting list in case any spots became available!  Thank you so much to everyone who participated to make this such a success.  It was truly a WIN / WIN for everyone.  It was a fun evening, as it always is.  Everyone went home with beautiful works of art that some of these ladies didn't realize that they could create, and a successful fundraiser as well! 
Now, without further adieu, I will share the photos of the alcohol ink awesomeness!  Enjoy!

We fit 21 ladies, plus Margaret and a few helpers in here!  A full house for a great cause!

So vibrant!

I am always amazed (although I really should be prepared by now, lol) how beautiful all the pendants turn out.  The photos never really do them justice.

Curious?  You would be amazed what you can do with ink and an air can!

Tea time!

This is Margaret's display of her work for inspiration.  I thought I would show some of her new works, as well.  I am loving the winter scenes!

 Beautiful Northern Lights!

 And some awesome little pieces of art to adorn your fridge!

Once again, Thank you so much to everyone who made this evening such a success.  A wonderful group of ladies, and not all of them were from our group, so it was so nice to meet some new friends as well.
And thank you so much for taking the time to visit.  I hope you enjoyed this new post and are maybe inspired to give alcohol inks a try, or pull them out if you are already and alcohol ink lover!  Have a fantastic and artful day!
