Creative Chemistry 102 Day 1 at last....

Hello everyone and welcome!!
Well, here I am, one whole week after the wonderful Tim Holtz started his fabulous Creative Chemistry 102
classes and I can finally show my first tags. All of these relate to day one and I have combined two techniques on each tag.

I am sure everyone who took part will agree just how fabulous these classes are! I have to say I enjoyed them even better than 101 and I am only about half way through watching all the videos.
Anyway, onto my tags:
This is number 1, as most of you know, day one is all about the Distress Paints. This one combines
Marbling and Coloured Crackling
Here are  a few close ups:

The background was obviously done with the Marbling and the the leaves and little frame with the Crackling.
Tag number 2 combines Altered Surfaces and Eroded Metallic. That was probably my most favourite technique of day one.

And here finally tag number 3:
This is probably my favourite tag from this set, combining Stamping Resist and Industrial. I was kind of familiar with these techniques already, but it was good to revisit them and see them done in a slightly different way. I love how detailed the stamps come out...


Well, there you go, day 1 done, pfew.....

I would like to thank Tim and Mario for making this fabulous class possible, the videos are awesome and so informative. I know I will come back to them again and again.

Thanks for dropping in today, I'll be back tomorrow with some more tags.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
