Smashbook day 17: Tim Holtz

Hi bloggies,

My theme today is the grunge king himself Tim Holtz! Hihihi. Because of Lein I knew of distress inkpads and decided to buy them when I started making cards and after I'd seen video's with all different techniques. I also ordered stains with it and I started working. I like the grunge and vintage look very much, and find his products are also very cool. In the past few months I have purchased quite some products of Tim (also ranger, stampers anonymous, etc.) such as 22 distress inkpads (eventually I would like them all, including the limited ones), 7 distress stains, mini mister, mister bottle, grunge board, crackle paint, Stickles, perfect pearls, archival ink blending tool, paper distresser, paint dabbers, embossing powder, non stick craft sheet, and lots of stamps. Only the embellishments are missing in my collection. Here are  the first tags and first cards that I made with distress:
I love the style and the techniques where Tim stands for and I have applied some of it for this smashbook. Love it,love it, love it!!

On the left page I used distress ink for the background, and for the tags stains and distress. The right ticket I just got yesterday. And of course I had to use it for this book immediately.

On the right page of course a picture of Tim, with his crown above his head that I've embossed. And over the photo, I did his logo of vinyl and gone over it with gun metal stickles.

Tomorrow is the last theme of my smashbook. But my smashbook isn't full yet, so when I discover something new and fun to smash, I will post a message about it.

See you tomorrow!
