Creative Chemistry 102 - Day 2....stencil mania!

Another busy day attending Tim Holtz' Creative Chemistry 102 classes!  Finally got the 2nd day's samples made and photo'd.  I'll share them with you...some are better than others but at least I tried.  I know practice makes perfect and sometimes it's the stencil and coloring medium than can make or break your idea.  Sigh.

Good ole blogger...a mind of it's own when it comes to arranging photos and text. 

This lesson features stencils and using distress inks, distress paints over them, through them, and on them.  And another technique that I'd not thought about because I thought they'd be too thin to make this work.  But it does if you have what it takes to make it happen.  Curious?  Then you need to be taking the class if you haven't signed up already.

I used plenty of distress inks, paints and stains, not to mention archival inks, Glossy Accents, distress glitter, some Sizzix dies, an embossing folder or 2, and some rub-ons.  I'm learning a lot from the videos and thankfully they'll always be there for me should my rememberer need refreshing!

Like the lens with the 'no' tag on it?  That's in recognition of my upcoming cataract surgeries; hopefully I won't have to wear glasses at all once the 2 procedures are done.  But readers may be in my future.  Oh well.  Better than what I've had for the past 50 years.

On to see what's on tap for Day 3!
