I’ve decided that Tim Holtz is an instigator.
Yesterday I was fortunate enough to spend the day with two artistic friends. We met for a great lunch, then they took me to my first ever in-person ATC (Artist Trading Card) swap with about fifteen other women. It was fun!
The store owner began with a little blurb before we started about her latest escapades. It seems she’d just returned from CHA (national Craft & Hobby trade show) and for part of it, spent an eight-hour class with Tim Holtz. She showed us a set of 25 shipping tags on a ring, each using different products and techniques. DANG! I’m so hooked.
I got up this morning and decided on a road trip to the craft store I knew carried “The Instigator’s” products, but alas, their stock was way low and I didn’t find anything that fed my need for new goodies. I guess that leaves another day for future shopping with Mr. Holtz.
For today’s art piece, I went back to an old technique I love, but haven’t used in a while. Emboss with clear or white, then color over. I used my Ranger spray inks, then wiped it off. Easy squeezy.
