All Cracked Up!

I gotta tell ya, the Creative Chemistry classes with Tim Holtz have been great -- but today he added another side of his humor that "cracked" me up.  Apropos considering we are working with crackle paints today, and paint techniques.   

I've been posting tags throughout this course for the techniques we're learning, but what you don't see is that the backs of the tags have the quick-fire directions from Tim, plus I make sure to add the colors & products I used.  I'll be keeping these in a specialty book I made for easy access & reminders.  I hope to revist the book in a later post, but for now, here are the tags I made & what I used on them (tags listed from left to right).

Tag 1 - ATC size Sticky back Canvas (white), Scrolls Work Lighthouse stamp, TH Shabby French flourish stamp, TH City Central perspective stamp, Snow Cap paint dabber, Distress Stains (DS): weathered wood, & broken china.

Tag 2 - Broken China distress crackle paint, TH Air Travel stamp set, DS: picket fence, broken china, wild honey, fired brick, spun sugar, weathered wood; Distress Ink: walnut stain, and black Archival ink.

Tag 3 - TH grungeboard harlequin heart, crown, & butterfly wing shapes; Rock Candy distress crackle paint; TH retro stamp set, DS/ink: same as tag 2, snow cap paint dabber

Now, I better give my dogs some attention...or treats -- that usually perks them up! 
Thanks for peeking in today.  Lisa


  1. Gorgeous! I especially love the middle tag with the Broken China crackle paint.

  2. Cool, Cool, and Cool! All three are funtastic! I am behind and sadly, will probably be that way! So thankful this is a lifelong class!

  3. Great tags, love your color choices.

  4. Great tags and great organization tips too. You are so creative and every tag is a work of art. Very cool.
