Tim's Creative Chemistry 102

I was not really going to show any of my Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 102 stuff because I don't actually make anything, I just do the techniques and put the tags/elements in a  file for reference and for inspiration.  Lots of others made amazing creations and posted them in Tim's Gallery and I so admire their ability to do the class and then create something straight away!  I am a bit late to the party, too late for the Gallery, but better late than never I guess.

This year I made a tag folder to hold all my tags, I tried to make it look a bit like a book, so that it will sit on my craft shelf for inspiration:



The tag book has been made with No. 10 tags and some Kraft card to form the pockets.  On the right it has been filled with all of the tags I made over the 5 wonderful days of learning.

I added Tim's Creative Chemistry 102 logo.

I will add some stained ribbon to the top to finish it off although it is free-standing, but I think it will finish it off nicely.
So here are my efforts over the 5 days.


Day 1 was all about Distress Paint - there are so many ways to use them!


Day 2 was my favourite by far!  It's all about using Layering Stencils - loved doing these tags.




Day 3 was using Distress in different ways - love the faux crackled glass technique...devised by Wendy Vecchi and great fun to do.  I am obsessed with these little glass domes, both have the technique applied and I have lightly coloured one of them with Cool Peri alcohol ink.



Day 4 was all about Alcohol Inks, not my favourite medium but I really enjoyed learning the techniques.


Day 5 was all about Embossing Techniques, I love, love, love the chalkboard technique!

If you have not joined in yet and you want to learn these amazing techniques, you still can, as long as you have completed Creative Chemistry 101 (which is still available to do).  Check out Tim's blog for details HERE.  I have to admit I have really enjoyed doing CC102  and have learned so much already.

Thanks Tim and also Mario for taking me out of my comfort zone!

Thanks for looking, Big hugs, Anne xx

  3. Such a fabulous book lookalike way to store all your CC 012 tags Anne, they will be right there for you to grab when you need an idea or some inspiration. Love the chemist decorated cover, he look very grand with his potions and in front of him. Your tgs look fabulous and aren't they amazing when they are all put together?
    Hope you are having a great day.

  4. this looks amazing Anne - can't wait to get started but I am sadly still ploughing my way through 101 - there's so much of the stuff I don't have that I find it quite expensive ... but I'll get there gradually - the same will go with 102 although it looks as though there will be less to buy from the tags I've seen!!!! Big Hugs and thanks for sharing xx

  15. Oh I do like this idea Anne - very clever! You've really created a huge selection of wonderful tags here and I'm really hoping my workshop at Harrogate is going to help me with some great techniques. Then I might have to make a folder of my own to keep my inspiration tags in. Thanks for the idea. Love, Margie xx

  18. That title is so apt, because I do feel as though I'm entering your chemistry lab, Annie, and being gobsmacked by the beautiful creations that you make in the lah-bora-tory of magic!! Your Book of Tags to hold your class results is simply genius!! I'm sure you will find lots of other artists CASEing that creation! All the various tags seems incredible to me; the bright and glossy colors on the alcohol ink ones are so vibrant! You rock all of Tim's techniques!! Hugs, Darnell

  24. Well Anne, what great tags, you've certainly been busy and I have to ask about the holder you made...this one looks different to the other one you gave me instructions for, is that correct? I would love to make one of these as they look so much like books on a shelf - fabulous.

  27. Anne...Anne...Anne!!! I totally LOVE your tag folders. They are brilliant! Love the designs on the fronts, the colors you've used and the whole idea with that! Those are not only a useful thing but are beautiful to have sitting out to enjoy as well. And your tags inside...well, I love those as well. I was late signing up for Tim's CC102 but so glad that I did! I am getting ready to be gone on vacation for a week but when I get home, I want to go through all of the lessons and create the tags. I may "borrow" your "storage" idea for them! I LOVE IT! Also...thank you for your sweet comments about my SSS piece. I think I always like to start the morning with your comments because it just starts the day off right!! THANK YOU! <3 Candy

  30. Really liked your tag holder. Looks like the backs of little books with your sample tags enclosed. What a clever idea to hold your tags and still show off the class projects. Gosh, when I enlarged each pic, you have some fantastic techniques herein. Your stencil ones made me think of the Dylusions stencils. You do TH so well....will have to find some time to go enjoy the gallery projects too. TFS & Hugs

  31. Hi Anne, this is brilliant,what a super idea and it just looks so - fabulous - I have been wanting to sign up for 101 for some time now, but I need to get all the backlog out of the way first so I can have more fun doing it! Hugs Carole Z X

  32. You sure had fun making tags, alot of different designs too, that looked like a fun class. I think your tag holder if fabulous and Tim Holtz should have it as a tutorial on his blog!!! This is really nice and the look is perfect for you tags, you should show this to him! I love your style of the tag holder, very professional!! Have a good day, Hugs Kelly

  33. Completely fantastic, Anne - what a shame you were late for the gallery, I bet you'd've been spotlighted for this beauty! Great inky background, fabulous tinting on the image and I love that you added the CC102 logo. Such a cool construction too... And all the tag samples look great. I'm going to be playing catch-up with all this stuff... signed up, but of course no chance at all to play yet!!

  39. Hello friend. Loved reading this post about the 102 course. I had my attentions diverted to other places while this was on and I haven't got around to doing any blog reading about what you all did with the course content. Your course 'notes' look fabulous in their binder/holder. I must confess my sample tags from the first course have been repurposed into other finished tags.
