Class is in...
I have become obsessed with Tim Holtz vintage style every since a friend pointed out his 12 Tags of Christmas tutorials last year. I have been on a mission every since to buy everything he has developed as well as learn how to use the darn stuff. Low and behold just when I was really starting to get into all this inky business, along comes a course on how to use all the goodies I've bought...YAY!
I was a little late to classes due to holidaying with my girl but have proceeded to play catch up. Day 1 of class was an introduction to the different types of inks and dyes and their properties. They say you learn something new everyday, so far it's true...lol.
Day 2 had us spritzing and flicking, playing with brush-less watercolour and wrinkle-free distress. A couple of these techniques I had picked up during the 12 Tags tuts, but brush-less watercolour??? Let me just say I can not draw or paint to save my life, thank goodness these are not required for this technique. Brushe-less watercolour relied on my ability to ink a stamp, spritz it with water then stamp it onto watercolour paper... I think I have just found a new crafting love :D
So much fun and new things learnt!
