Did I mention in my earlier post how beautiful the area was?
|Seven of the twenty technique examples from the "Technique Boutique"|
One of the creative classes was a "technique boutique" where we were given the opportunity to make twenty 3x3 cards, all showcasing a different stamping technique. These are my favorites:
Starting at the upper left, is a faux silk technique using tissue paper, a resist, dyed ribbon, a stencil, a reflection using transparency, painting with Lindy's spray, and white ink on black cs. These are just my favorites. I was soooo tired that evening that I didn't complete all twenty cards. Instead I just cherry-picked my favorites. All the examples were outstanding though, and I wish now I had done them all. Some of my favorites were the ones using the Lindy's Stamp Gang products, which I had never tried before.
Here's a shot of some of the "loot" I brought home. Gifts from Tresa, secret sister gifts, roommate gifts, etc. Cards, stamps, treat holders, supplies & tools--and this photo doesn't even show all the candy and other treats, which I'd already moved to a bowl in my kitchen. There's some amazing artwork here: sewing, stamping, Cricut crafts, and jewelry making.
I gave away a few things too. Here are some examples of my offerings, which I've been wanting to post, but had to wait until after CU:

The picture is dark, but the jump rings are linked together all around a strand of blue glass beads. It's very beach-like, and I plan to wear it two weeks from now when we visit the gulf coast.
Here's a pic of me with my roommates outside our cabin. We were the "Lil' Otters."
Another fun person I got to know was Joy. Here's a picture of us. I took it in front of that wall hanging in the dining hall so I wouldn't forget her name...lol
|Molly & Joy|
I met so many nice and talented women at CU. It was inspring to be around all that talent. I came home with many new friends and gobs of creative ideas. I have one more post for later--the Charm Swap.
