Techniques with Tim

Techniques with Tim Holtz, almost but not quite.  I've had a most enjoyable morning at Alice in Paperland playing with a whole assortment of Tim's techniques thanks to the talented two,  Jenni & Kerrie.  A few months back they were lucky enough to attend Tim's class held in Sydney, and came back brimming with all his wonderful techniques, and of course, there were lots of people who wanted them to do a class, and so they have teamed up to do two classes.  Today we made 10 tags, and next week the second lot of 10 tags will be taught - 20 tags in total.  Can't wait to get inky fingers again, it was such fun.

The tags were made using Distress Stains, Dabbers, Distress Inks and a little bit of shimmer thrown in just to add a sparkle.

I think this is my favourite tag, although my photo doesn't do it justice.   It has a beautiful suede feel and is made by scrunching, dabbing, drying, dabbing some more and finally adding some perfect pearls to add shimmer.  I just keep wanting to pat it, hee hee!

Have a crafty day!


  1. Wow that looks like a fab class you attended. Love the way you will have the tags as a permanent reference point of techniques! x

  2. Love these tags Helen. The colours look gorgeous and it is wonderful to have the use of lots of techniques.

  3. Hi there Clever Clogs! Your tags look great, they sound like lots of fun. Great to hear you are still teaching what you love. J

  4. It sounds as if you had a lovely inky time making these Helen! I love the idea of a technique keyring. Vicky x
