Taking a look back on Boot Camps

by Staci L. Smith

We had so many great boot camps last year! 

We already took a look back at Balled Head Pins. 

After that we covered Textured Metal.  We used letter stamps as texture, found object textures, textured earwires- as well as projects to try and information on metals!

I also have a question- did you have a favorite boot camp last year?  if so, which one was it, and why?

I think my favorite was the balled head pins because it was a technique I really wanted to learn. Second fave was cold connections with tutorials on riveting.

This post went right into my favs…thanks so much for listing all the links to some awesome tutorials for last years bootcamps. What a great resource.
Can't pick a favorite bootcamp, as I love them all and appreciated all the work the team did to provide these for us. Looking forward to some more in 2014!
