Now This is FUN!

I am taking my very first class with the Master himself Mr. Tim Holtz.  My sweet friend Sandra told me about this  class and if you ever get a chance to take one of his classes then do.  Class #2 --


Reading from left to right - tag one - Blended Distress/Spritz & Flick Technique.  Tag two - Brushless Watercolor Technique and tag three Wrinkle-Free Distress Technique.

Class #3


Again reading left to right --- tags one and two - Alcohol Ink Agates Technique.  Tag three - Archival Resist Technique.

While Mr. Tim is flying to the moon,  I am busy driving to the airport with ink stained hands and a big smile on my face!!!!  I need more product but I can tell you this - I love what I am doing - FUN!!!     In real life, the tags are brighter.
.
I  read all your sweet comments and do appreciate them so much!!!

I am so jealous of you Sandy LOL. Those tags are gorgeous, you don't need classes at all!! I am also a great fan of Tim Holtz and have a lot of the products from him and now need some time to experiment with it. I have met him once in the Netherlands. I love his techniques and products.
