Some Tim Holtz Inspiration and Some Luck

So I follow Tim Holtz's blog religiously and I've been posting daily on his blog for the past few days because he's doing a giveaway for 5 winners daily for the next 5 days. Well, I can't believe that I am one of today's winners!! I'm not sure what I'll get in the mail but I'll be sure to post it as soon as it gets delivered to my doorstep. I'm hoping for some of the new alcohol ink colors or one of his new stamps. I adore his designs! Here are a few that I have my eye on:

I watched this video yesterday with him using a dust remover can of compressed air with alcohol inks and glossy paper. It's called the splatter technique and it looks so fun! I don't know how he thinks up these things but I'm sure glad he did!

He also has a new product coming out called the refillable pen.

You put alcohol ink into it and then you can use it to draw or color directly onto Prima paintables or other transparencies. You can check out that demo video on the link above.

I am definitely going to have to get my hands on a few of those pens.

Oh, and Tim Holtz is going to be teaching 2 days of classes at Scrapbook Territory in Berkeley on April 17th and 18th. I hope I get lucky enough to sign up because his classes sell out quickly.

OK, off to try the splatter technique!
