Scarf Day

Scarf decorating in progress
The lovely "Rosebud" Sandy opened up her home to the talented chics of the Arty Tea Party to show us how to paint and/or stamp onto a pre-dyed silk scarf.  Sandy prepared all the scarves in advance with all natural dyes, using plant materials, tea, etc.  The process produced some wonderful shades of purple, tans, pinks that were just waiting for us to embellish with rubber stamps and even watercolors.

Dyed scarves in lovely colors.
Sandy's sample of stamped & painted scarf.  WONDERFUL!
As always, we had a grand time learning a new art form to express the creative beast within each of us.  Thank you Sand"ar" for such a lovely time.  It's so great to see everyone at these events.  And now that SPRING HAS FINALLY SPRUNG, we hope to hold some Arty Tea Parties outdoors.
