Playtime at Crafters Workshop booth

Soooo, I never really did a CHA recap.  I had a blast seeing some old friends and of course meeting new ones.  The Stampendous DT had an awesome dinner and playtime at the Stampendous office one night.  And the Dreamweaver Stencils DT had a fabby Mexican dinner and drinks out one night.

I got to meet all the peeps from Crafters Companion UK and US :)  I took an incredibly inspiring class with Dyan Reavely the day after CHA (which I will share that project later)

AND I was able to explore lots of the booths that I wanted to see.  I seemed to gravitate towards the mixed media this year...Crafters Workshop stencils, Splash of Color (the newly redesigned Creative Imaginations and now US distributor of Viva Decor), Faber Castell, Ranger, Tsulineko, etc etc.

My favorite part was that the Crafters Workshop booth had a Playtime table every day with different designers.  I got to play with Ronda Palazzari, Natalie Karbach, Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, and Dina Wakely.  Each designer had tags available for us to work on but I just happened to bring along my art journal, so BONUS for me!  Here are the 2 pages that I did while hanging out with Dina Wakely.

These have got to be 2 of my all time pages I've ever created!  I worked with new Dylusions spray ink colors, Liquitex paints, a new fun paste from Viva Decor, and of course new Crafters Workshop stencils!

Too fun!  Thanks ladies for all the fabulous inspiration last week!

  1. It really does sound like your CHA experience was more than wonderful!! These pages are fantastic and I must say since I've seen them in person, the photos just do not do them justice. I mean the photos are great, but just being able to see and touch all the texture on your pages is awesome. You know what I mean...LOL!! Thanks for sharing them and for the inspiration!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment! Every comment makes me smile :)
