How Tim Holtz saved me from the grips of a Gorilla

EXTRA. EXTRA Read all about it.  Tim Holtz is my hero!!  While constructing jewelry yesterday I used my hands to open the inside cover of a bottle of Gorilla glue...not smart!!!  When I finally got it open my fingers were all glued together.  As I panicked I used liquid hand soap....No help......nail polish  remover....No help!!!!  I was continued to panic when I remembered how well Tim Holtz  blending solution took of even alcohol inks......I poured it on my hands!! Success!!! That is how Tin Holtz saved me from the grips of a GORILLA!  Bless you Tim Holtz!!!!  I am free, I am free!

Sakura Design Team final submissions

Shrink plastic using Sakura Crystal lacquer as a glaze.  The heart on the right was dried over night and the heart on the left was dried with a heat gun.  I love the variety that crystal lacquer offers.

It's great to layer Crystal lacquer pieces.  When both are dry you can use you Crystal lacquer to adhere them together.  I have found that this product is the best liquid adhesive I have ever used.

The lips on the face above is also accented with Sakura Crystal Lacquer.

I love the beautiful shine that Crystal Lacquer gives projects!

This was the Sakura make and take from CHA using the beautiful glass findings from Sakura.  This project was taught by Terri Sproul the Sakura Design Team Co-ordinator.

This bail is one of my favorite Sakura products.  Not only are they attractive they are also quiet inexpensive.

Wish me luck I would love to be part of the Sakura Design Team!
