Creative Chemistry - day 7

Hi everyone,

I'm a little bit behind again, but that's okay. I'm so busy with work and other things, but I do not want to miss this great course. And because Tim will not be available for questions via the forum for a lifetime (as the class is), I want to do every class, so I can still ask questions if I have any.

Okay, day 7 is embossing powder day. I regularly use embossing powder, especially clear. I don't have much embossing powders. I've got 6, and 1 of them is distress embossing powder, black soot to be exact. Another 3 techniques to learn today!

The first is Nostalgic Batik Technique, I didn't knew this technique yet and I think it's absolutely fabulous. This way you can use any color ink and make everything smooth again. Totally awesome.

Then he explained the Rusted Enamel technique. I knew this technique of the 12 tags. But this time it's a bit different. I find this technique really cool.

Finally we got the Distress Powder Resist Technique. I only have black soot, and I have only used it 1 time, and I didn't get the desired effect then. I had watched a video where Tim explained how you should use it, but apparently I did something wrong. Anyway, I am very pleased that he put this technique in this class so I could try again and this time it was super. I did use Versamark even though Tim said not to use it, but I don't have Distress embossing ink. So i had to... Sorry Tim ;)!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!



  1. Considering that I have only done Day 7, I think you are doing pretty darn good! Awesome take on Day 7! Your tags are fabulous! I am hoping to get a couple of days done today!!! Have a great day!

  2. Digging your tags! I love how you are doing your photos as are you making them look like that?

  3. You are really making some fantastic tags Sandra and I am way behind. I still didn't get the product I ordered. Will go on the the embossing class - I did watch the first part of today's class about acrylic paints. When you are with Mr.Tim, you can never have too many products!!!!! Love your tags - you were the one that caused me to have interest in different techniques with your Christmas tags that I thought were delightful!

  4. your tags look fabulous as well. I would say these classes are turning out to be a whopping success...
    Have a great day
