My Date with Tim Holtz

Okay, so it was really a class with Tim Holtz, but I had a great time. Tim taught a "Curio of Creativity" mixed media class at Ten Seconds Studios yesterday. Here's what I created:

We ahered a lot of Tim's metal embellishments, vintage papers, lots of ink, and other little trinkets to little canvases that were then adhered to the background. We adhered strips of metal that we embossed around the sides of the frame. This was the first time that I've embossed metal. It came out pretty cool, but the interior of my curio looks better than the sides I created.

Tim was a great instructor, and very personable. I would definitely take another class with him and recommend that you do too when he's in your area. Here's my favorite photo of the day: me with Tim! He's the most photogenic man I've ever seen.

Class with Tim lucky duck! Great photo.

The project is awesome! All of his stuff is addictive but I especially love the metal.

Can't wait to see embossed metal in your future stuff :0)
