If you have done any scrapbooking, stamping, art journaling or mixed media art you have seen Tim Holtz art supplies! He fell into the industry backwards but you can tell his genuine passion in all his videos. I love his motto… Embrace Imperfection!
Meet the Designer: Tim Holtz
Here he is at Creativation 2018 showing us his new products including 12 new oxide colors, blending brushes, and Distress Resist Spray.
My favorite place to buy his supplies online is Scrapbook.com They have sales all the time, great shipping and they send you a gift in every purchase. I love free surprises! Amazon also has a large supply of Tim Holtz Ranger Ink products.
Tim Holtz on Distress Oxide Inks 2017
Distress Oxide Ink – Dye & Pigment Fusion
I really adore his stencils for layering
They make your backgrounds so random and juicy, things don’t have to look grungy distressed which is Tim Holtz’s favorite look when it comes to stencils though, it all has to do with the colors you use.
This harlequin diamond patterned stencil is my very favorite.
I think I use it on every project. By the way, Tim says you really don’t need to wash your stencils, just wipe them off. If you get too intense with your cleaning you will likely bend or break some of the tiny details of the stencil. I like the smaller sizes for the price, of course, I never want to cover an entire background with the same thing and if I do I can just use and repeat across the page.
TIM HOLTZ STENCILS
I use this splatter brush every day! Yes, you can use any brush to do this, but this one just works better and doesn’t mess up your paints. I also have become addicted to these dauber tops. You can use them on regular craft paint bottles as well.
Tim Holtz and Ranger introduce Distress Micro Glaze™ – 1 of 4 new Distress accessory products
This distress glaze is a game changer! If you have ever used the distressed inks through a stencil as a bottom layer and then tried to paint on top of it, you know that it is SUPER reactive to anything that is wet. So, you end up smudging everything. This product fixes that.
