Scrapfest: The Projects.

Hi all! In yesterday's post, I mentioned that I would come back with another post with close-ups of the finished projects from the Hero Arts class and Tim Holtz class that I took last weekend at Scrapfest. Here, along with some other pictures from the event, is that recap.

(Picture from the fabulous Latrice.)
First up was Tim Holtz's Key to Creativity Class:

 Our little setup. So many goodies to play with!
Mario was the fastest tiny attacher-refiller I've ever seen. (Okay, so the only one I've ever seen... but he still was amazing.)
A work in progress.
 The final project- distressed, inked, and Tim Holtz-ified.

My overall opinion of the class: Fantastic. Tim is a wonderful teacher and got through the entire project with time to spare at the end. He's wonderfully charismatic and a blast to learn from. I'd take a class from him in a heartbeat! I look forward to adding my photos and journaling to the book. I'm still on the fence of what to make it about. Maybe my family back at home? We'll see.

Next up, it was the Hero Arts Color Your World Cards class. Here's a cute picture that my new friend Linda captured of me during the class:
Class Review: The class was super fast-paced, so I spent about another (leisurely) 45 minutes outside of class cutting things out, tying bows, and adhering them to the card bases, but the work was well worth it. Check out the final products for yourself:
 Embossing + Distress Ink + Lots of Perfect Pearls mist

 Clear resist embossing + distress ink + a unique front-open card

 Distress Inks + Perfect Pearl mist stamping + a fold-up front portion of the card

And one more for good measure from the Hero Arts Make and Take:

Yum. Isn't Hero Arts the best?

This post is getting quite long, so I'll just have to be back tomorrow with a new card + some inspiration links for ya. Oh, and don't forget to comment on the giveaway post for a chance to win some HA and TH goodies.
