Ode to Tim

Well I scheduled this post for Saturday at 9:00 am - I am now in my first Tim Holtz class!
When I take complicated classes I like to write notes so that I will remember what I learned. Usually I have a plain notepad, but, for Tim I needed something special! I was inspired by the ISC Tim Tag challenge and I thought I would make a tag book.

Ode to Tim:

The cover features:
Tim’s Distressed Inks
Grungeboard (the A - in drunken scotch)
Lots of heavy metal from Tim’s idea-ology line

I made a page for each of the six classes. My plan is to take notes on the back of each page and to take a picture of Tim’s sample for each class and my completed creation for the front of the page. I also created a page for Tim’s signature and I plan on getting picture of me with Tim to add to the page.

Close Ups:

I know I am having a fabulously creative weekend - how about you?


The Stuff:
Stamps - Creative Collages, Branch (Tim Holtz)
Paper - Office Tag, Wanted (Cosmo Cricket)
Ink - Rust (Adirondack Ranger); Antique Linen, Walnut Stain (Distress Ink - Ranger); Timber Brown Stazon, Sage Shadow (SU)
Other - Glossy Accents (Ranger); Fragments, Swivel Clasp, Sprocket Gears, Game Spinners, Ball Chain, Jump Rings (Tim Holtz idea-ology); White Opaque Pen (Inksentials), Stream, Ginger (Alcohol Inks - Ranger); Scotch Scrapbooker’s Glue, Bind-it-all
