Anywho, it's back to business. Today is Day 4 of Creative Chemistry with Tim Holtz, and we began with a very informative video on re-inkers and maintenance. Then on to the fun of making three tags using different techniques with re-inkers.
Here are my three tags I made...
I have to admit, I just don't have that many re-inkers yet, but it was fun making it work with what I had.
Now let's take a closer look, and I hope that my photos are okay.
I had to take them indoors today because I didn't finish them until after dark.
"Watercoloring with Re-inkers Technique"
This was fun to experiment with using a water brush and re-inkers. It takes a little practice, but it's not difficult. You just gotta know when to stop. (which is hard because it's so fun!)
"Layered Misting Technique"
It's really hard to pick up the overall effect in this photo, but the point was to spritz and get those flecks for texture. I didn't have a single stencil in the house so I made my own by cutting out some packaging plastic with Tim's Alterations Dies and laying the pieces down and spritzing over them.
"Custom Stamp Pad Technique"
I had tried this technique once before and this time I was even more pleased with the results. I used two different stamps (the pen nibs and the phrase) so I had to make two custom stamp pads from the Cut-N-Dry Felt.
This stamp is one of my all-time favorites. Just love the saying, and how it looks.
That's it for me today. I love getting your comments, especially fellow classmates! I ask you, does your towel look like this? It's only Day 4 and I need to throw it in the wash.
Thanks for stopping by. See you after class tomorrow!
