Creative Chemistry 101 - Day 3

Hi there,

Wow, third post in a week, it's been such a long time since I craft that much... me happy^^

Well, I'm REALLY enjoyed this class, it's soooo cool to learn from the master himself!

Today was all about Archival inks. These are more versatile than I thought... really, I used only black and brown to ink my images that I'll watercolor!

I have those inks for a couple of month and never used them before... but I will now!
Tag 1 is the Alcohol Ink Agates Technique. This is a really fun technique, I love the result! This has to be my favorite so far...

Tag 2 is Archival Resist Technique. As I only owned a black and a brown one, I tried this technique with my red Brilliance ink and a white Stazon and it worked just fine... but I definitly will buy more of those Archival...

Tag 3 is Stamping with Reflections Technique. This is really great combined with texture folders, I love the texture and those stamps are awesomefor a lot of other techniques as well.

Thanks for stopping by,

Please leave me a comment so I can go and see your work too,

Creative chemistry 101 - Day 2

Hi guys,

I'm back with my day 2 tags!
Day 2 was all about Distress Inks and the amazing properties of those inks.

Here's a peak at what I've done.

First tag Israël the blended distress and spritz& flick technique.

Second tag is the brushless watercolor technique. This is a quick way to achieve a watercolor look.

And last one is the wrinkle-free distress technique.

I had a lot of fun doing these, now I'm back on my craft room to make day 3 tags, this time we'll be working on Archival!

Thanks for reading this

Leave me a message so I can go and see you work too ...



Creative chemistry 101 - Day 1

Hi there,

Have you heard of this class? This is on the online card classes website and it's fantastic (as were the previous classes...)

If you haven't signed up already, go go go, you'll have a lifetime acces to the class!
Learning thoses techniques and info from Tim Holtz is awesome. As I live in Belgium, I don't have the possibility to have a live class with him, but this online class is really amazing!

Well, as usual, I'm a little behind with my homeworks, but here's day 1 homework.
I did fine, but was unable to find out if Stazon is dye or pigment, nor if brilliance was water or oil based... anyone can help on that?

I already make two of the three tags for day 2, I'll try to post them later today. As I'm off work, I hope I can finish the third one and make those of day 3 as well.

Thanks for reading this
