Day 2 Creative Chemistry 101

Recently, in surfing the web and looking at other mixed media artists blogs I became aware of online art classes. These are a perfect fit for me. Self paced, after you sign up and pay the fee the classes are on the web for as long as we have web access and so far I don't see anything that looks or feels too much like a test. Tests and me don't always mix.
So, when I saw this class at Online Card Classes, Creative Chemistry 101 with Tim Holtz as the teacher, I just had to jump in.
Day 1 was an introduction and Day 2 Mr. Holtz covered 3 techniques for us to practice.
If you haven't ever used Distress Inks, man oh man, are they versatile. My first tag I got the water blotches to big, but as in all things, practice, practice. The second tag is came out very soft and watercolory which was the intention, and the third tag is great for backgrounds because each time you do it depending on what colors you use it comes out different.
As I progress along in the class I will be sharing my endeavors to master these chemistry lessons.

Happy Creating--
