12 Tags of 2013 with Tim Holtz-October

Woohooo, Fall is finally here! I was beginning think that it was never coming to the southeast!  I love Tim's background technique for his Oct. tag and had fun creating my own. I still haven't got any Distress Glitter so had to improvise there. I can't wait to get my hands on some of that Distress Glitter!  For this Tag I used Distress Paints, Distress Ink, Tim's Framed Silhouettes Stamps and Dies, Tim's cool Tinsel and Tim's chit chat stickers. You can see Tim's gorgeous Tags for this month on his Blog.

Playing with Birdcage CC102 with Tim Holtz Day 5

I couldn't wait to use the Tarnished Birdcage, I added some ribbon that I partially painted with Distress Paint and stamped the word imagine at the bottom.

CC102 with Tim Holtz-Day5 Shabby Chic

I just adore this technique! I've got some ideas for tags, cards and home decor using this one. 
Because of the weather I can't get a photo yet that shows the colors, this piece is a muted pink and blue believe it or not :-)  Want to learn this? Check out CC102 at OnlineCardClasses!

CC102 with Tim Holtz-Day 4 Faded Layers

Forgive me for jumping from day to day but I'm just having fun and going with the flow that has taken over me :-)   Here's my homework for day 4 Faded Layers:
I like this look but am not totally happy with my play however I'm taking some advice from Tim and "embracing the imperfections"...on that note, the area to the far right of the tag is what we shouldn't do..want to know what we should and shouldn't do? Head to OnlineCardClasses and take the class :-)

Haunted House Tag

I woke up to a stormy fall day, ready to do some homework for my Tim Holtz CC102 Class.  For this Tag I decided to use 3 of the techniques we've just learned.  I used the Distress Paint Marbling and Colored Crackle from Day 1 along with the Faux Cracked Glass from Day 3. 

Happy Hallowe'en!

CC102 with Tim Holtz-Day3

I'm still waiting on some supplies to come in for Day 3, 4, and 5 classes but was able to complete three of the day 3 techniques without those supplies. I've been stalking my mailbox and it sure doesn't make the orders come in any quicker LOL

Here is my tag for the Smudge Stamping Technique:
I enjoyed it so much I tried another:
Here is the Brayered Stains Technique:

Here is the Faux Cracked Glass Technique (can't wait to try this on a larger scale!):
Here's hoping my orders show up tomorrow so I can do the rest of the techniques :-)

Thanks for looking!

WOW! I just can't tell Ya'll how exciting this class is!  Like many others I didn't have all of the supplies on hand that Tim used so I'm a wee bit behind on my homework...but I'm staying at it and hopefully tomorrow my other supplies will be here so I can catch up. Here is a group shot of what I've done for day 2 so far:

1. Mixed Media
2.Embossing through
3.Stencil Sketching
4.Ink Monoprint

I am beyond thrilled to be taking Tim's CC102 Class!!

Yesterday was day one and Tim taught us six different techniques, I had a blast doing them! Here are some pics:
