Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 102 - Day 1

I am busy playing and making a mess today. I joined in the Creative Chemistry class at online card classes. Last year I did the 101 and graduated so now I can join in the next class.
The class is a technique based class and we make lots of tags of the different techniques we learn with all the various Tim and Ranger products. I have a few of most of the products needed, including 1 distress marker in vintage photo. When the markers were released the budget did not stretch far enough so I purchased one to try it out - it is very cool but the lottery tickets have not been very kind so it remains a loner with no friends!!
I managed to make a big fat mess and have a few photos of my creations with my favourite at the end.

I splashed out on the Distress paints and love them. As always I had to have the browns and metallics but now the rest of the colour range is calling my name .... 

Yes - this is what happens when you spill distress paint. The good news is the colour is gorgeous and I have lots of backgrounds ready to go!

Looking forward to tomorrow's class!

Thanks for visiting

  10. This is amazing! Your stamping is gorgeous (if it's one stamp...I NEED those stamps!, but it looks like a good mixture of great stamps). Way to save the paint :)

  11. Oh my goodness! That last tag is gorgeous! I wish I had taken CC102 when it was live, but better late than never, right?
