4th Annual Crafty Chica Cruise: Day Two

Aprons drying.
Our crafty home for the week.

Me with Maya and her friend, Amy.

We woke up bright and early to dive into our workshops!

Thanks to my boss, Alyson, and my co-workers at iLoveToCreate.com, we had a 24/7 Fashion Graffiti station set up in our craft room so everyone could take a turn to use our new Tulip® Fashion Graffiti™ Fabric Paint Cannon™ and Tulip® Fashion Graffiti™ Stencils. See the “peace”, “love”, etc designs – those are them! Here is my video demo I did at CHA.

Here is Alice carving. She came all the way from Canada! Can you believe she went para sailing the next day? Anyhoo – we also had our lino cut and block printing workshop. Thanks to Speedball Art, we were equipped with carvers, linoleum blocks and printing ink. We made greeting cards and eventually swapped our carved blocks to use on other projects throughout the week, like on our art aprons and Grungebooks.

Gillian's lino cut
We had two preteens in our group and they rocked the supplies. Gillian made this cool carved stamp and we all took turns using it!

Here is little Emily using Tulip® Fabric Spray Paint™ on her silk scarf.

Alica Marie's cut up tee
We also made t-shirt pillows and cut up tee ideas from Megan Nicolay’s Generation T book series!

This is what we did the whole day and night. We did take breaks for dinner though. In past cruises, I booked a night class, but people always felt a bit rushed, so I tried to slow down the pace a bit and everyone liked that. That gave us time to play bingo, lounge by the pool, watch karaoke, etc.

Love & light,
