Tim Holtz - Creative Chemistry 102 class - Day 1 - Distress Paint, Crackle, Altered, Be Yourself Tag

Created: October 12, 2013

I decided to take Tim's On Line class again - Chemistry 102. These samples are from Day 1.


Love all the techniques - From Day 1 Distress Colored Crackle Leaves & Paint to Alter Surfaces (letters), Day 3 Distress Rock Candy Glitter (Butterfly & Flourish)  .

I'm using a 110# cream toned cardstock cut with Tim's Sizzix tag die..

Also using a Quietfire Design sentiment stamp


Distress Paint on Crackled Grungepaper Tattered Leaves
Barn Door, Seedless Preserve, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn

Butterfly & Flourish from Grungeboard elements pack.

Color item with Distress pads, then layer Glossy Accents and sprinkle Rock Candy. Do not press the glitter down, it needs to stand on end to catch the light. When dry brush of any loose bits.


Letters from some plastic set I had. Colored with black paint, dried and then applied the Distress paint in pale colors, as it was drying, rubbed some off.

Tag, direct to paper with Walnut Stain, then some Vintage Photo. Used my rubber mallet and Tim's "gridlock" embossing folder at an angle. Sanded the high points. Adhered elements. Die cut the ticket tag and stamped the sentiment.
