Secret 5 talks about the critical skill of Self-focus which is necessary for creative women to be able to indulge in our inspirations and devote the time necessary for innovation. The topics covered in the chapter were:
•Confronting Fears of Selfishness
•Putting Yourself on Top of the Priority List
•Honoring Your Holistic Style
•Supporting Self-focus in Other Women
We had a good discussion about the chapter and a nice salad lunch.Vivian showed us all how to make "fabric paper", a combination of fabrics and papers bonded together with a diluted mixture of white glue. The embellished fabric paper can be painted, sewn, woven etc. into books, mixed media works, spirit figures etc. It was fun to experiment with a new technique and to spend time together.
We will meet again the 3rd Wednesday in February to visit Gallery Central in Fresno, have lunch together at a restaurant, and discuss Secret 6 (Conquering Saboteurs) from the book.
Anita isn't in the photos because she took them.
Thank you, Anita!
