The 2019 Holiday Tea Gathering of the Fabulous Las Vegas Scribes was held at the home of Rita Clark. Rita was a most gracious host! The food was amazing! We enjoyed socializing, eating, exchanging cards (for those who had opted to participate), and just celebrating the great year together.
This meeting of the Fabulous Las Vegas Scribes at the Red Rock Harley Davidson started with our annual business meeting. We voted on a few updates to our bylaws and voted on our slate of officers for the 2020 year. After we took care of business we moved on to the fun stuff:
Scherenschnitte, which means "scissor cuts" in German, is the art of paper cutting design. The Fabulous Las Vegas Scribes were led by Patty Craddock in the making of our own Scherenschnitte tree. We all had our own spin on this and each was unique and beautiful.
At the September 21st meeting of the Fabulous Las Vegas Scribes we crafted Weathergrams under the direction of Mary Stutz. We all worked together to write the names of the 58 victims of the 1 October shooting in 2017 in additional to writing more traditional pieces on them. The Weathergrams will be hung in lieu of a meeting on October 19.
At the August 17th meeting of the Fabulous Las Vegas Scribes there was a wonderful program led by talented member, Schin Loong on Brush Lettering. Members were guided and corrected by Schin to help improve our skills. Schin showed how to mix different fonts together with the same pens for a fun, cohesive piece.
The Fabulous Las Vegas Scribes opened their exhibit at the Clark County Public Library. The exhibit started with an opening reception with food provided by member Rita. It had a great turnout and was enjoyed by all.
The Fabulous Las Vegas Scribes met at Red Rock Harley Davidson for our July meeting. Daci Overby gave a quick overview on the overhead on navigating Google Drive for everyone, which seemed to have been enjoyed. Nancy Sampson gave a very informative meeting and a nice presentation on the making of the folded pen, Making Marks Decorating. For those who have never used the pastels (chalk colors), Nancy demonstrated scraping them a bit with the exacto blade and then taking a piece of soft fabric (t-shirt) and rubbing it onto the paper. It really made the paper art piece pop with little effort.
