CC#9 And Now For Something Completely Different.....




I am embarrassed to admit how many things I have by Tim Holtz that I had either never opened yet or really didn't know how to use. Blushing.....BUT Linda's Compendium Challenge has helped me learn more about my art stash then I have in probably years so thank you Linda! This is a bit different for me. I didn't use stamps or strictly TH for this lesson. In my studio chaos I found a little tiny die cut ball jar die I had and just needed to use it. So I blew it up on my scanner....the rest is in the lessons in TH's book...really you must get it if you haven't yet. It has been fun to really do these lessons and sometimes redo them...LOL! The crackle has a bit of a learning curve!

You'd think I'd be sick of seeing these jars after canning 48 jars of apricot jam and syrup. But no I like yours much better and not sticky at all! Cute Nan!

Lori said...

Your jar is so cute! And collecting is part of the making sure we have what we want/need when something clicks for us! Or not, and then we collect some more....

Shelann said...

Me too, never used 90% of t!m's collection of products that I own, have never done the techniques, and have never joined a challenge. All of it so much fun. And I enjoy your projects week to week.

I love this too! What a great jar that is and the texture you've created on it is fab. Love the crackled heart too.

I'm the same with some of the TH stuff - this was the first time I had used the Rock Candy distress crackle despite buying it months and months ago - better late than never eh!
