Girls Weekend

This past weekend I was able to attend a little meet up by some of the ladies I chat with a Scrappin Peeps. We met at the Woodridge Lodge, which is a crafting lodge groups can rent out for their functions. We had ladies from Wisconsin and Minnesota make the drive.

We had an absolute blast. We scrapped. We stamped. We did mixed media. I learned some new techniques, specifically gelatos and modeling paste on canvas. I just wanted to share a few pictures of our weekend and my canvas. My goal is to get some of my scrapbook pages edited and posted this week. We report back to school in the morning, so I'm back into teacher mode. My classroom won't be ready for another week, so I'm working on lots of projects at home.

I wanted to share some pictures of the crop since all my scrappy friends couldn't join since schedules are nearly impossible to coordinate.

How much food do you need for two days?

The lodge, the porch was great for sitting on!

The crop room
 And this was my big project on Saturday night. I've never done any major mixed media. I play around with stuff sometimes, but not like this.

So I started modge podging paper to a canvas.
Then some paint, and I put some ink down as well

 And drum roll please....the final product.....

 I absolutely love how the modeling paste mixed with glimmer mist looks. I actually had did this underneath without the paste, and it was underwhelming and blended in too much. So I went right over again with the paste and more mist.
 Some hearts and another stencil with the paste on the right. I'm downright addicted to this stuff. I will be running out asap to buy some. The letters were cut on the cricut and modge podged down.

And lastly a group shot of all of us on the deck. The owner was awesome taking all of our pictures.
