My Tim Holtz project complete!

rather than come home and clutter it up, I decided to leave as is...Tim's class gave us so many metal accents that I have enough to do another one which I will do once the supplies that I needed (Claudine Hellmuth adhesive and the tacky surface) come in @ Queen's Ink....

We started by using TONS of techniques to alter grungeboard -all to your color tastes.... and then after coloring, inking, sanding, grunging, crackling, you get the drift...we put it all together!




I added my own Scrabble tiles and my fairy from my favorite diecutter Scott {Porkchop show} @ Etsy...and here's my first Patchwork project!
It was very labor intensive according to my wrist..I'm not used to sanding or inking, especially with both hands so today, I feel like I pulled a muscle in my wrist! Again, if Tim & crew are ever in your area, just treat yourself and take a few classes. IThis was my first but won't be my last. Sorry for the bad scan but I'm multi-tasking (home schooling {my version}, baking with kids {gasp!} and trying to be on the computer-all before I gotta get outta here @ 3pm....

more tomorrow!
