Creative Chemistry Class with Tim Holtz

I signed up a couple of weeks ago for the Creative Chemistry 101 Class with Tim Holtz and have been eagerly waiting for this class to start.   It began yesterday with an introduction to the class and lots of information about inks, paints, etc. and then today we learned three techniques for using Distress Inks.  I had a lot of fun trying out the techniques and getting all inky!  Here are my samples:

Blended Distress (using Iced Spruce, Evergreen Bough and Shabby Shutters)

Brushless Watercolor (can't wait to make cards with these images)

Wrinkle Free Distress (I tried this three times because I wasn't sure I liked the first two, but they've grown on me....I think the top one looks like rusty metal)

If you're interested in the class, it's not too late to sign up.  You can find the information here.
