2013 Peninsula Scribes Collaborative Project: "Where is Nancy Drew?"

2013 Peninsula Scribes Collaborative Project: “Where is Nancy Drew?”

The 2013 project for the Peninsula Scribes was call “Where is Nancy Drew?”, a collaborative decorated envelope project. All of the envelopes were put together into a quilt and shown at the 2013 Clallam County Fair. In the Fall 2015 edition of “Bound & Lettered” there is an article written by Linda O’Neill that describes how this project came about and what we all did to participate. Many of the envelopes created are shown within the article. Check out this month’s edition.


Marbling Workshop

We had a great time at the Marbling Workshop, held on July 26th at Pam Hunter’s studio in Forks. It was beautiful day so our work had no trouble drying and we were able to do a lot of work outside. We were able to try a couple of different methods and experiment with different materials, including a silk handkerchief. Everyone was able to make quite a few different pieces. Pam provided a fantastic lunch along with the workshop and we all had a chance to relax and get to know each other. Thank you Pam for hosting this fantastic workshop. Here are some pictures from the workshop.

The recipes for the gel and alum follow.

Gel for marbling:

2 flat teaspoons for carrageenam

1 quart of cold water

Mix in a mixer or blender and then let sit for 24 hours


Mix 1 tablespoon of alum to 1 cup of hot water (hot to the touch). Mix so that all the crystals dissolve.

Line, Color & Gesture

We had a great class yesterday (Sept 27) by Susan Longerot called Line, Color & Gesture.  We went through the process to make some terrific designs on paper that can be used for book covers, book/journal pages, cards, ATC’s, etc. We hope that Susan will come back soon.

She brought along some samples of her designs for inspiration.


We went through the creation of the designs from drawing the lines with sumi ink, adding circles and other design lines. We then added color and finished with dots and gestural lines.
