The pages depict an Inchie gallery.
The background was created with Scattered Straw Distress Ink and Flourish stamps from my own stamp range
I played with Alcohol Inks
I experimented with Ranger Crackle Paint
on Chipboard pieces
Some items I made last month from CD pieces, Dominoes and faces from moulds waiting to be assembled into necklaces and other projects.
I mostly used Paint Dabbers from Ranger.
I particularly like the black for stamping.

We received goodies also from other companies and a kewl Ranger apron.
We spent the rest of the day with Tim Holtz walking us through some great techniques which we created for ourselves on tags. Robin Beam had prepared stickers for the reverse of the tags so we wouldn't forget LOL and these were also repeated inside a class folder. A CD completed the theory.
At 5pm we packed up and travelled in car parties to a Chinese restaurant. Very enjoyable as I was able to chat to some of the other ladies and then some of us went shopping at the Mall.
Wendy and I were shattered by the time we got back to the hotel.
Saturday we returned for Day 2.
Tim walked us through yet another barrage of techniques and by 5pm we had 45 tags in total, created over the 2 days.
We went over to Applebee's for a meal. Then it was time to return to the classroom and work on our project. We were each given a mirror and a bag full of chipboard squares and rectangles and we had to create something using the techniques we had learned. We had a couple of hours to do this. I thought about it, looked at my tag book and came up with this.
Wendy and I were shattered again but managed to talk till some unearthly hour.
Sunday was the last day and each of us had to make a presentation and show our project to the class describing which techniques and products we had used.
Each of us received our certificate from Tim.
The class of Ranger U October 2007.

Back to the airport, shared cocktails with Wendy and then home on an overnight flight to Manchester.

I inked up my string stamp with Aged Mahogany and stamped my background. A satisfying result.
