Today is Day 5 and although we'll take a break for the weekend, we fortunately have another whole week of learning and fun next week! Today's focus in class was on Distress Stains. First we got an education on the difference between spray inks, Distress Stains, and Color Wash sprays. These little tidbits that Tim shares before the class techniques are extremely helpful. It gives us a real understanding of how the products work, their effects, how they differ and how they compare.
So here are my technique tags for today...
Here are some close-ups and the name of each technique...
"Stained Kraft Resist Technique"
"Stamping with Stains Technique"
(I learned you really gotta move fast with that craft heater after stamping with Picket Fence Distress Stain)
"Marbled Stains Technique"
My favorite of the day. Such a cool technique!
And you can imagine my delight while making this tag, just about to stamp it when the mailman delivered a few Tim Holtz goodies including this Mixed Media stamp set. I've been looking forward to this one and know it will become a favorite set for a lot of projects. Even though I think this one is supposed to be chicken wire, I thought it mimicked honeycomb. Perfect for my bee!
Thanks again for stopping in. I'm having an absolute blast in Tim's class. It's not too late for you to jump in, so just go to this link and get registered. You have all weekend to catch up, or you can just move at your own pace and do it anytime you like.
I see I'm getting close to a Follower milestone, so keep watch on my blog and once I hit 400 followers, I'll do a big giveaway! Watch for the post, leave a comment that day, and your name will be put into the drawing.
Have a fabulous weekend!
