Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry Day 4


Another awesome day in class.  Gives me a new appreciation of Alcohol Inks.  I didn't have any of the glossy card stock on hand and a quick trip to my local craft store didn't help any.  So, I had to break the rules and try the techniques with glossy photo paper.  I know Tim said it wouldn't work but I am a rebel crafter at heart.  LOL And NO it doesn't work as well.  LOL  But I just couldn't wait for an order to arrive to try at least one of the techniques.  I chose the Monoprint thinking it would be the most forgiving of the techniques.  After several failed attempts, I at least got one to come out looking presentable.

I will definitely be putting an order in for some proper paper and revisiting the lessons from today!

On the sad/happy side of things, tomorrow I am leaving for The Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie, TX for a great two day craft class where we will be doing the Christmas in the Hood Village project by Anita Houston.  It was featured on Tim Holtz's blog and I have been waiting with great anticipation for this class.  While this is the happy part; the sad part is while I will still be able to watch Tim's classes each day I will have to wait till I am back home to practice the techniques!
