More CHA - featuring TIM HOLTZ!

I'm a HUGE fan of all things Tim Holtz. The guy has talent in buckets, and is a product GENIUS! He has the best products, and with so many companies...his own Idea*ology line, Ranger, Stampers Anonymous, Tonic Studios...

Anyhoo, enough gushing! Here's the man himself, workin' his magic with the Grungeboard and inks at Ranger:
And showing off his own personal recipe for home-made glimmery mist (a dropper full of Distress reinker, a small scoop of Perfect Pearls, and water to fill a Mini Mister, then SHAKE like crazy to mix):
And a book one of his fellow artists made showing off Grungeboard and its awesome qualities (this one is colored with Adirondack alcohol inks, and it looks like leather!):
Photos of the Idea*ology booth, and the PHENOMENAL projects

Grungeboard shapes in frames:
New mini-masks:
A cool collection of old type-face-looking letters in a shadow box (they're apparently NOT real typeface, since the letters would be backwards, but they're very convincing!):
One of Tim's cases, decorated with papers and Fragmentz:
This card was wouldn't believe the depth it has IRL:
Did you know that you can sew on Grungeboard, and that it's washable, so you can do stuff like this?:
Some amazing jewelry made with his Idea*ology sprocket gears and trinkets and stuff:
And this display literally made my jaw drop! The flowers are all made from Grungeboard!! I stood and stared for such a long time! (Grungeboard, I learned, has a 'memory', so you just shape it how you want it to look, and it cool):
And close-ups:
Here's another that was in a Grungeboard mini scrapbook:
And a cool page showing a TON of products:
Tim, thanks for the inspiration, and all the wonderful new tips and tricks! *grins*
