Tim Holtz Classes

Lucky Me....I have taken four classes for the past two days with Tim Holtz at Stamp Asylum in Plano, Texas! This was my first opportunity to take classes, I usually only have the time to shop at Stamp Asylum. It is a great destination!

I have given the class description as posted by Stamp Asylum below. I will write about my awesome experience later and post photos of my projects!


Transparent visions can often tell a story of your artistic dreams. In this workshop you will explore creating works of art seen through various shaped clear fragments. Capture photographic memoirs and artistic elements of days gone by to express your visions of life. Learn techniques on transfers, layered ephemera, alcohol ink tinting, and faux etching as you create a mosaic mirror masterpiece. Experience a world of creativity that can only be seen through your transparent illusion.


Explore the world of whimsical winged birds in this one of a kind workshop. Let your creativity soar as you create an artistic bird of your own. Learn techniques on distressing with paints, collage and dimensional assemblage. The possibilities are limited only to your imagination and trust me when I say there are more findings, charms and elements than your wildest dreams can envision. Your creative bliss awaits you to take flight.

Have you been intrigued by the eclectic mix of products in the idea-ology line? Does your mind wonder at the possibilities? This workshop will satisfy your creative wishes as we design and assemble numerous wearable pieces using idea-ology. Learn a variety of jewelry making tips and tricks as you customize your creation into one-of-a-kind couture. Explore the endless ideas that await you as we discover the intrigue of idea-ology.

Got Grunge and don’t know what it is or what to do with it? Explore what makes this innovative product so versatile and creatively clever to work with. We will incorporate inks, paints, embellishment and a variety of tools including masks, sanding grip and the Tiny Attacher to really show you how to design with Grungeboard and Grungepaper. Create a very “grungy” mini book filled with elements you create yourself from Grungeboard and Grungepaper. It is a new world and a new generation - one I like to call generation grunge ….

You are one lucky duck! When I saw the altered birds on Tim's blog the other day I got my wisher wishing. ;)
Then I saw some similar birds at the prestigious Des Moines Arts Festival on Sunday. They were so cool.
Can't wait to see what you made. I'm sure it's great.
