My friend Jenni and I finally made time for the two of us to get out (sans kids) to enjoy a night of wine and art. We were invited by Bottle & Bottega, here in Portland, to come in and check out what they had to offer. We picked a date and marked our calendars to attend one of Bottle & Bottega multi-media nights.
The multi-media night sounded fun because it allows for you to use a variety of materials and to create whatever you want based on a few prompts. The night we attended there were a few people working on multi-media painting/collages of Mt Hoood, a few ladies came to gether and were all doing collages of their furry companions. Jenni and myself decided to go with their “love” collage design. We grabbed our glasses of wine and went through books and books of scrapbook papers finding the ones that fit our design idea, color pallette and over feel for our pieces.
We were guided through the general process and then we were set free to go about making our art pieces just as we pleased. It was such a fun night to be in a room filled with other women doing something creative and fun. It was also a nice change of pace for us to be the ones creating the art rather than picking up after our littles masterpieces.
This is just another reminder of how important it is to get out with friends and other adults because after I left I felt so refreshed (until I arrived home and realized I had a parking ticket on my dash- oops). Head on over to Jenni’s site to see more from our Bottle & Bottega adventure!
