Ranger University Day 3

Apr 30, 2012

Day 3 started out with Dyan Reaveley and her awesome funky, quirky adorable self. Her art journaling has taken the craft industry by STORM and has me quite intrigued. Dyan will be in TEXAS at The Crafty Scrapper Thursday, May 10th & Friday, May 11th and it’s all the buzz.

During Dyan’s segment we played with all her Dylusions Ink Sprays, Perfect Pearls and or course her stamp sets. For this vintage, keep it clean, cream & black with a muted pop of color, kinda girl… I was INSPIRED! I was inspired with her colors, style and techniques.

After lunch it was time for Tim Holtz to teach us all the super cool techniques using his Distress line.  You can pick out Tim’s unique vintage grungy style anywhere. I like that you can do vintage grunge like Tim’s or a vintage shabby chic like me using the same products… it’s that versatile.

We got to play with all kinds of products like his new Distress Markers (GASP I know), Distress Powders, Distress Stains and Distress Inks. We were crazy busy and having so much fun.

My favorite technique was Photo Tinting. I cannot wait to try this on some of our old family photos to use in altered projects and into unique embellishments. I have lots of ideas!

Once it was all said and done we completed 80 Techniques in 3 DAYS…. these 2 days total 24 hours in all… that makes 80 TECHNIQUES in 24 HOURS… talk about a creative marathon. This experience was amazing and I’m so glad I was given the opportunity to attend. It really was the most amazing experience.

Thank you, Ranger!

    Oh gosh it looks like you had fun
    Am sitting on the fence about attending a Tim Holtz class, losing a day’s pay on top of the class cost are hard on the budget but all those wonderful colors sure are tempting!
