Summer of Creative Chemistry 103 - Day 1

The new Creative Chemistry Class is now underway for 2016 and today I have been working on day 1 which deals with Distress Accessories. What a brilliant class to start us off - it's great to build on what was learnt in 101 and 102, and move on as there are new techniques to learn and new products since the last class was issued. 

Here is what I have created today
