Hi Bloggers & Happy Sunday to you! We’re still reeling from a fantastic class with THE Tim Holtz, earlier this month. Due to popular demand, (and because we’re thrilled to show you), we are presenting to you all of our individual takes on the patchwork project from this spectacular class by Tim Holtz!
I thought it was so cool to see everyone’s take on color choices, as well as accent pieces and where to place them!! If you’d like to see any of these photos closer, just click on them! :)
Below we have some close ups of a few of the projects to see some of the cool techniques that were taught and applied!
The close up above shows many techniques, but some of my favorites are the effects of the crackle paint on grunge paper, and the pretty sparkle from Rocky Candy Distress Stickles on the heart! Check out how the key on this piece is attached with string! Did you know you can sew through grunge paper?
The beautiful butterfly is definitely the star of this close up! To get your own crackled and multi colored butterfly, apply a generous layer of Rock Candy Crackle Paint to grunge paper, and allow it to dry. Next use your favorite colors of alcohol ink, and apply a drop or two of each to your alcohol ink applicator tool next to each other. Finally, blend on the surface!
It’s always fun to add a personal touch to your works of art! Our teamie, Reba added this fantastic wedding photo of herself and her husband Richard to Custom Fasteners!
Did you know that you can custom color white or light colored embellishments with alcohol inks? Simply place them in a seal-able plastic bag, add a couple drops of alcohol ink, shake, let dry, and TA DA! Just like magic, you’ve created custom colors! :)
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing this art we created with Tim Holtz! If you missed it, be sure to check out this blog for more coverage of this fantastic event! We encourage YOU to get inky this weekend!!
