Creative Chemistry 101, Day 9

Embracing the Perfection of Perfect Pearls

Yes, yes, if Tim Holtz has a mantra it's probably "embrace imperfection," and believe me, I have plenty of that to embrace.  But as he says in today's lesson, Perfect Pearls is an aptly named product.  So easy to use, and such an uncomplicated way to add some glitz to a project.  Here are my tags for the three techniques we did today in Creative Chemistry 101:




The techniques are, perfect distress mist, perfect distress, and perfect splatter distress, and honestly, they are best appreciated in person, where you can hold the tags, turn them to hit the light in different areas, and really see the sparkle of Perfect Pearls.

I even have a bonus tag today.  It was created by sopping up the leftovers on my craft sheet after each technique.  Pretty cool, huh?



Remember, you can sign up for this class ANYTIME, and will have access to the content FOREVER!  The only difference between taking the classes now or later on, is that the forums and galleries can't be added to later, although you will be able to read all comments and view all the pictures.  I know I've said it before, but I'm saying it again:  take this class and you will not be disappointed.

My distress markers are supposed to be delivered today, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to play with them just yet.  Busy day today.....taking mom for a haircut, and then getting ready for a weekend getaway with some of my bestest local artsy pals.  We're trying out a new place this year, and I have to gather my supplies for the project I'll be teaching.  Yes, I know I'm lucky.  I have friends I can make art with from all over the world, even my own backyard.

I'm enjoying following your journey with these techniques. I didn't think there was anything you didn't know.
