Inky fun Tim Holtz Style...

Morning folks...first of all I need a big big favour...my lovely buddy "mon ami" Sylvie from Fiskars France needs your help...she is completing a Masters Degree researching papercrafting and blogs and would really appreciate if you could spare a few minutes to complete this questionnaire...
Time to share some pics from the Tim Holtz Masterclass Workshop at The Papeterie on Saturday afternoon...well done to all the lovely crafty girls who joined me for a fun session getting all inky and messy with Tim's fabulous range of Distress products...this was a mega technique fast paced class but my super duper group of crafty stars absolutely rose to the Art Inspires challenge...embraced their imperfections and hopefully enjoyed the journey in true Tim Holtz style...
 creating their very own unique interpretation of each technique...

and here's what we made...
making 5 tags using lots of different techniques in the space of 2 hours is a big ask...we did run over by about an hour and only managed to do the rosette flower for the last tag...

Tim Holtz Masterclass Take 2...using Alcohol Inks...Acetate...Metal...Reinkers and a few surprises thrown into the mix just for fun is scheduled for 28th July at The Papeterie...only 3 spaces left so if you want to come and along and play Tim Holtz style...call Charlotte on 01224 802337.
Thank you for all your lovely comments yesterday about the Distress Marker Demo cards...I did have quite a number of e-mails asking if the markers can be used for detailed blending and shading colour work. I have to say that is not my forte at all...I leave that to folks who are much more talented than I could ever hope to be but to prove the point that these really are all singing and dancing markers...look no further than the gorgeousness created HERE by my lovely buddy BEV. 
See you all tomorrow over at WOYWW...crafty parcels have arrived in the cubbyhole...looks like the crafty production line is going to be smoking for some time to come.
Hugs Kath xxx

  3. Wow Kath, you made some amazing tags in your class, love the look of each and every one, useful techniques for when we have to start making Christmas cards. Good tip about Bev, she did say that she struggled at first with the Distress markers but she does the most amazing things now, blending colours etc. Going over to do the Questionnaire. Crafty hugs, Anne
