So What was the retreat all about you ask? Well we began on Friday with a bag full of supplies and a box. This retreat was so much fun and packed full of tantalizing techniques in every turn. Friday we made our box and learned lots of layering techniques. Here is Belles Box. And here is my completed box.
And inside.....packed full of some of the goodies we made over the weekend. (Sorry for the turned photo, Blogger seems to not like this one) There were so many techniques over the 3 days and we came away with some really wonderful items and the best part was that everyone had made totally different things. Michelle and Janet just showed us a technique and we went at it. The hands were inky the fingers painty and the artistic concentration was in full swing throughout the room it was awesome. I have to say I think this was the most relaxing creative weekend I have EVER been to. We even managed to fit it a little shopping with a trip to the stamp Man on Saturday. Inbetween all the wonderful techniques of course.
If you are looking for a artistic getaway where your imagination is the limit then you have to check out the next lovin Ink retreat scheduled in September. I would definately make a return trip...I am hooked. Oh almost forgot, We were also treated to a wonderful series of Meals from Chef Andy who also spent the weekend with us. There was so much freshly made food we were definately well fed.
