Purple Egypt Androgyny

The Orange Dream Monkeys came out to play on Wednesday night. Not everyone could make it during this busy time of the year, but those of us who did show up had a nice time creating art and visiting.

We had some pretty yummy treats, too.

Our December theme was Purple Egypt Androgyny (yes, it really was - remember, we pull from three jars to get our theme: a color, a noun, a concept). Some of the ladies chose to stick with the theme . . .

. . . and some didn't!

Tory didn't use the suggested theme as a prompt, but worked on a creative altered book she designed. She even completed one of the pages and inserted it into her book.

I didn't stay with the chosen theme either (it's only a suggestion anyway, right?). Instead, I worked in a journal I started in Leighanna Light's class at Art and Soul, The Construction of an Art Book. My little book will be a tribute to my Dad, who is physically healthy, but beginning to fray a bit mentally.

Our theme for next month . . . .
