Educational presentation: Larry Citra. Stretching Gallery Wrap

            Great demonstration, with details of content to come in a separate document. Using one of Avril’s images which Larry had enlarged and printed on a sturdy self sealing canvas called Breathing Color, he demonstrated the entire process of stretching the image onto a frame sourced from a Canadian company, “Stick n Stretch”.  Needless to say there is a learning curve to doing this well. A beautiful finished piece. Thank you Larry!!

 

Next month’s Challenge: Individual themes...  challenge yourself

 

Slide Show: Doug McMillan

This month’s theme was Flowers and featured many beautiful images, including lots from the club’s recent field trip to Butchart Garden, led by Jana. Despite a much delayed spring this year, the flowers were both prolific and gorgeous
