Creative U is a weekend of exploring new products, projects and ideas. Attendees included designers, shop owners, teachers, crafters and people who are just looking for new creative and painting experiences. A few of the highlights of the spring 2011 session included:

  • Using the new glitter fabric paints from the DecoArt SoSoft line
  • Exploring the new DecoArt Americana colors
  • Taking the newest color trends/palettes and finding new combinations using our regular palettes
  • Worked with the Etchall products to prep our painting surfaces and create a canister and lid piece
  • Explored uses of repetitive pattern in our designs
  • A background study using stencils, stamps and brush techniques
  • Dry brush project
  • Our surfaces included tin pockets, paddles, glass canister and lid, canvas bags, oval frames and boards
  • Learned how to cut vinyl using electronic cutting systems

The weekend was filled with problem solving tasks, lively discussions on trends and business and lots of laughter and sharing.
