The man, the myth, the legend ....





No, I am not talking about Rodney, the King of the K2R Krew ... more like Tim Holtz, the distressing darling of the scrapping world. Rodney and I were fortunate enough to get seats in his sold out "Distress-a-palooza" class at the Craft and Hobby Association's World's Fair at the Anaheim Convention Center Saturday. While I was more familiar with the the Ranger Industries' line of Distress products, both Rodney and I were introduced to new applications for several distressing media, including embossing powder, crackle paint, distress ink, acrylic paint dabbers, the fabulous Tonic scissors and more! We had a blast working with the acrylic fragments and Bazzill chipboard to create the decorated mirrors seen above. Can you guess whose project is whose? Oh, and we got to KEEP the products listed above (three ink pads, embossing powders and crackle paints each!) AND Tim handed out CDs of his paper line that was recently discontinued ... well worth the $30 ticket price! A helpful hint Tim gave us: When using the crackle paint, a medium layer of paint works great. Also, for the best results, let the crackle paint start to crackle before you turn a heat source on it!
