My Regional Training Presentation




I was very honoured to be asked to present at this year's Regional Training in Sydney. I haven't presented for a couple of years, and when Sophie from SU rang to see if I would like to do it, I jumped at the chance. Today I want to show you the cards that I made with my chosen technique.

I'm not sure if the technique has an official name, but I've been calling it "Watercolour Resist"... I love it because it gives a different result every time, and I seem to be drawn to more unpredictable techniques. I also love when I use these kind of techniques in a class because each of my customers goes home with something different, that they created themselves... and there isnt another one quite like it. This makes you feel quite "arty"... and I love the creativity that can inspire!

So I think I will run this as a class in its own right in the coming months.. stayed tuned for that.

I used wet watercolour paper and reinkers for the first couple of projects here:









And then I showed a cool way to use the inks from our distressing kit:




This was probably my favourite card of the ones I showed... but they are all very different. Which one do you like best??

If you made it to Sydney Regionals, I hope you enjoyed the day... I had a fantastic time, and SU put on a great event as always. If you havent been to Regional training before, definitely plan to go next time - its available to both Demonstrators and their guests, and represents great value! What you come away with in terms of information is so valuable, and the connections that you make with other demonstrators is a wonderful thing.

Lastly, if you would like to find out more about becoming a demonstrator yourself, please email me at lindastamps@bigpond.com Its a NO-risk, completely fun way to make extra income, and if you have any creative bones in your body at all, then you will love getting your hands on all those lovely products at a discount. And in September 2011, you can do that for as little as $169... how good is that? For more information, please contact me!

I absolutely love these cards, what did you use to block the watercolor? What did you use to apply it? Just love the way they turned out and appreciate the new ideas! <3
