Each guest will have their own table. No sharing! And we won’t take up valuable real estate with table decorations. Your reserved table space – a full six feet long – has plenty of room, and our table setup means that no one has to sit in the middle. Everyone has an end seat!
Scrapista knows that the majority of scrapbookers really just want to be able to concentrate on their projects. So, we won’t interrupt you every hour with games and competitions.

I've seen a number of posts about using paper towels to use up left over paints and this is one is in the Traci Bautista style and is almost done. I'm thinking about stamping on top and using it for collaging. We shall see. I have her Collage Unleashed book and love it and bought the dvd which I haven't viewed yet.
The next two are me just playing with water color paper and paints.
This is one where I tried to recreate a piece in one of my many books and failed miserably. There is so much to learn! I'll still use this somehow or else continue working on it.
More playing but also trying out the clear tar gel and airbrush paints on water color paper.
The other dvd I watched over the weekend was Water Media Collage by Carrie Burns Brown. I only had a partial piece of patterned tissue left so only played with painting it black and then stamping on it for collaging. I have to say the papers she made and the subsequent collage was very exciting. I can hardly wait to play with it more.
This is another along one playing with color and stamping in molding paste. I'm not done with it yet.
This one I started with painting the canvas green and then last weekend added some oriental paper and corrugated cardboard and then applied a layer of crackle medium. Can't see the green paint anymore though. I'm tempted to leave it but it is meant to just be the start of something more. We shall see. May have to replicate this too to decide which part of the progression I like best.

I was smart enough to not take any naps. None of us had the energy though to document anything else about our time there. I finally took some shots of the things I worked on and will have pictures for my next post.
Blogging is going to be a bit spotty for me for a while because I have a project at work that is requiring a lot of extra time. I keep hoping to get caught up on my blog reading too but that isn't going well either so if I make a comment long after you've posted something please forgive.
