Tim Holtz Class

You can click here to see this week's Challenge!

 OH my goodness did I hit pay dirt when I was asked if I would like a ticket to Tim Holtz's Class.  It was awesome!  I learned so many techniques and learned about many new products.  We made 4 tags in 2 hours and each one was totally differnet.  I love his new tissue tape, crackle paint, Perfect Petals Mist and so much more.  I will post my tags when I get home.  He was so totally organized, everything about the class was perfect.

The one tip I want to share with you that totally impressed me is:  If you use any of Ranger's Distress inks and get too much you can remove what you don't want with water.  So often when I distress the edges I get some in places I don't want it....now I know how to get rid of it.

Last but not least, Ranger is introducing a man made block to scrub your hands to remove ink, glue or any other "stuff" you get on them.  I just tried it and it removed all the ink that I had on my hands.  I think I need a case of that for my personal use. "smile".

Will try to post again when I can.
