Weekend at a Tim Holtz Workshop

Last Friday, April 19th I had the pleasure attending a book signing sponsored by Beautiful Impressions store. It was held in Westbrook, CT at a quaint waterfront cottage built in 1784. The special guests at the meet and greet were Tim Holtz and Mario Rossi. It was such a pleasure to be in the company of two down to earth people.

On Saturday, April 20th two workshops were taught by Tim. The morning class Journeys of the Past was four hours long and the time went by so fast. It was so much fun and I learned so many techniques. I didn’t finish the tag book while I was there, but we were given all the materials we need to finish it at home.

In the afternoon/evening class Configuration of Your Imagination was five hours long. We learned how to configure the new book form. Once again I learned many techniques and how to use all the different product. I will be finishing this configurations book at home in the next couple of weeks.

I really love the Distress Stains and the new Distress Paints. It was my first time to use both of them. At the end of the day I knew I had a marvelous time, because my hands were covered with the different media.
