Creative Chemistry 102 - Day 1 (Part 2)

LOL - They are everywhere - posts showing what day 1 over at Creative Chemistry 102 taught by no other than Tim Holtz offered...

..honestly I have decided to share most of my "makes in progress" via a link to my online image storage and only post CC102 related stuff on my blog that I really want to share with you all - not only class (although it seems that "you all" might be the same as "class" *lol).

Maybe you also want to scroll down a bit to view my latest tutorial - an altered wooden box turned into a textured steampunk storage

I decided to try doing a project for each day in class that combines all the techniques shown (well, at least as many of them as I can squeeze into one project). So here comes my make showing all the six techniques from Day 1:

The "eroded metal" technique can be found with the background, the "industrial" is on "d", "marbling" on "a", "altered surfaces" on "y", "stamping resist" on "1" and "colored crackle" with the pediments to the sides.

I also made some close-ups as the letters aren't too big ...

Love all the metal shine on the surface and the "d"!

The Day 1 techniques are definitely a lot of fun to make and rather messy too - so right up my alley! :)

See you in class (or after class ;),

  4. Clever idea, this is a great way to show all the techniques!

  5. Coole Idee - ich bin gespannt, was dir für die nächsten Tage einfallen wird.

  6. Stunning Claudia, love how you managed to incorporate them all in one project, yet do each of the techniques justice! Wished I had a bit more time, still have only managed to watch two of the videos and not tried anything yet :o(

  7. Wow Claudia, so impressed with this creation, a wonderful tribute to Day 1! Hugs, Anne x

  8. What an absolutely amazing idea! I love it! I'm borrowing your idea...I hope you don't mind. I will do my own thing with what I have on hand so it won't be 100% the same! Imitation is one of the nicest forms of flattery don't you think? Danke for the wonderful idea! Beautiful work!

  9. What an innovative way to use the techniques and keep them as a reference. Wish I had thought of that! Lovely work. I will follow your blog for the future. Very inspiring.

  10. Wow! Your work is gorgeous!
    Lovely details!

  11. Great way to showcase all the techniques... I know I looked at this before, and could have sworn I commented too - but maybe that was the evening Blogger was playing up again!!
