Q&A with Tim Holtz

How did you discover mixed media and paper crafting?

In the late 90’s while working for a local craft store I took a class on rubber stamping, an experience that changed the course of my life. The creative curiosity from that class sparked my imagination and began my journey in paper crafting and mixed media. In 2004 I started designing products for the paper crafting industry with the debut of Distress Ink.

What inspired the innovative Colorize technology and how did you bring this to fruition?

Colorize® is an innovative approach to exploring the colorful possibilities of die cutting. Inspired by vintage animation technology, Colorize® breaks down each layer of a design by printing the color on each die. This provides a unique experience and allows the maker to bring a design to life through various shades of colors. The result is a more detailed, dimensional and colorful die cut design than ever before.

How would you describe your aesthetic and how did you develop your iconic style?

My love of all things vintage has a distinct influence on my style. From product design to making art, there is that touch of distress and time worn imperfection in everything I do.<

Who/what are your inspirations and how do they motivate the product collections that you create?

Since I was a child, I have always been inspired by Walt Disney. Walt represents imagination and believing in the power of a dream. His determination to “do the impossible” regardless of what others thought, has motivated me to trust my ideas when creating product collections.<3

What’s your favorite crafting technique?

Without a doubt…inking! Whether I’m creating backgrounds, altering surfaces, or stamping; inks are the way to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.
