More t!m

Day two of the t!m classes. This one's called Creative Blocks. We were each given one of each size 6 x 12, 3 x 3, 2 x 2 and 3.5 x 2 canvases along with a boatload of trinkets, tchotkes and other ephemera to alter. We used t!m's new paper pack, Crowded Attic to cover the largest canvas. Then used a graphite pencil on the lines to soften the edges and blur the lines. Then we used Ranger BeesWax in the melting pot and covered the whole thing in BeesWax! (Ohhh, my NEW. FAVORITE. THING! I want to put beeswax on every.thing!) We then covered the smaller canvasses in old dictionary paper and distressed them and covered them in beeswax as well. Now it was time to assemble! Such fun! Tim told stories and did giveaways while we worked. We all had the exact same product yet every one of our canvasses were different and were reflective of our personalities. Such fun!

My shirt today says, "The t!m and Mario tour 2011." Both t!m and Mario loved it.
