Let's get Artsy Tags
Anita Houston

Every year the creative stars line up and invent exceptional products, and "sometimes" when those products are combined, a match is made that is so super special, it can ignite the crafting world.  The products by themselves are wonderful, of course, but in my opinion when combined, are revolutionary!  I am of course speaking about Wendy Vecchi's embossing paste; Tim Holtz Distress Paints from Ranger and Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions ink sprays from Ranger.  Using the first two together creates a wonderful resist for the latter, so I call this the Trinity Resist, and you will see the wonderful results from it when you complete these two inspirational and artsy tags.  ($30)  Bring:  Apron.  All  other supplies will be provided.
