CHA 2009 Day 1-Workshops

Today I had 2 workshops...
Clearly Capable with Sally Lynn MacDonald and Distress the holidays with Tim Holtz. Sally Lynn was a wealth of information on using the clear acrylic. I have learned a lot to take into my design of these albums and you will see more of them from me. I don't have pictures yet of the album that we did as I didn't have enough time to finish the way I want, so I will post those when I get home and can finish it more. We used Prima flowers, bling, paper & transparencies. We colored with Copic Markers on the transparencies and also used the air brush system on some of the pieces and to change the chipbord letters a little. Thanks Sally Lynn for such great info and I can't wait to begin to play!

In the Distress The Holidays class, Tim introduced us to the new Rock Candy Distress
Stickles and the new Distress Crackle Paint Rock Candy (this is a clear crackle). A difference between the new Crackle paint and Crackle Accents is the cracks are much smaller in the Distress Crackle. It is a very cool product and I can't wait to play with it on a lot of different surfaces including pictures! I have fallen more in love with Distress Stickles!

The pictures below show the front of the Grunge book we did with some close-ups of the Distress Stickles and Distress Crackle Paint. The very last picture is of all the goodies we got in the Ranger class.

Enjoy and check back tomorrow for more photos from CHA!
