Creative Chemistry 101 plus Tag Storage

 
At the start of the week all the Buzz was for Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 102 Class (CC102).  What I did know was that I couldn't take CC102 without taking Creative Chemistry 101 (CC101).   Until that is, I went onto TH BLOG and saw that I could in fact take Creative Chemistry 101!  Are you kidding me...how did I not know this!  Feeling like a dumb ass I went ahead and registered. 
 
Here's the thing.  I thought I knew a fair amount about Distress Techniques when in fact..."I KNOW NOTHING"  As I try to catch up to CC102 (which I won't) I thought I would share with you the tags I made this week during the CC101 Classes!
 
If you want to take these classes you must start and complete Creative Chemistry 101 before starting Creative Chemistry 102.
  
***Please note, I have blurred any of the info shared in the class out of respect for those people that teach it and have taken it:)***

  
Day 2: Distress Ink Intro
I'm pretty familiar with Distress Inks and I'm sure you are too.  At least you think you are...hmmm!
 

Day 3: Archival Ink Uses
Working with Alcohol isn't a favourite technique of mine.  With that said, I do still enjoy it.  And Tim shares a Killer Tip for Alcohol clean up.  How did I not know this!


Day 4: Re-Inkers and Maintenance
Huge fan of the first technique with my cool guy.  Tag #2..too much water and tag #3, well when you don't have all the goodies you improvise.


Day 5: Spray Inks and Stains (End of week One)
What can I say but WOW!  Great stuff here.  Look at those layers! 


Day 6: Distress Markers ( I did week 2 in a day)
I don't own any Distress Markers, however I do own Stampin Up Markers.  I thought for not having TH Markers I still got it.  And I am very familiar with Marker Blending.

 
Day 7: Embossing Basics
Love, love, love this one.  Although I don't own any Distress Embossing Powder I did use what I have to keep up.  Can I just say the middle tag is an AMAZING Technique!  A future favourite:)
 

Day 8: Paint Primer
Oh all these tags are just so wicked to create. 


Day 9: Perfect Pearls
I wish you could see how pearlized this set is.  I don't own Perfect Pearls, but I do have Pearl Ex.  Pearl Ex does NOT have a binding agent, so I had to set with hair spray.  This did not affect the out come...for me any way.


Day 10: Dimensional Mediums
HUGE fan of Rock Candy so this was a treat!


Creative Chemistry 101: Tag Storage
Being organized is all most as much fun as learning all these great techniques.  So, putting together the TH Worn Cover Book has been so fun.  This will help me use all the techniques in a quick reference guide.  I have another Book for Creative Chemistry 102.


Table of Contents:
I re-sized the Table of Contents to fit into my Tag die. It has it's own Tag Pocket (I ran out) at the front.


Dividing Techniques:
I have these hard plastic dividers left over from some old SU Boxes.  I simply punched them for the rings and added each Days label.


Visible Labels:
Each Tag sit's in it's own Pocket so when I look at the back I have my instructions on how to create each Tag. 

 Keeping Organized:
I teach classes on these techniques so keeping organized for me is very helpful...and A-Type!



I have already signed up for Creative Chemistry 102!  I'm so excited to join in and play with such talent!  Thanks for taking a look:)

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…
