Tim Holtz @ ArtsyCrafts

Inchie book presented to Tim

Had a wonderful day on Friday 25th Feb at ArtsyCrafts in Milton Keynes. Of course it was even more fantastic than Lin and Leandra's workshops usually are because the wonderful Tim was here to teach a configurations box class.  First I was in class with Lin and Leandra(with their wonderful helpers too) after I had been to the shop :)  We made a lovely triptych using some new PaperArtsy products - new chalk paint and metal card.  As usual Leandra comes up with some fab words - this time "worm envy" and we heard about "red snot"

Work in progress - triptych

After a much needed lunchbreak came the highlight of the day - Tim's class!  I love his work, his teaching style - really just everything!   I didn't finish my box - too many choices in the goodies we were given that I spent sooo much time putting things in and taking them out again - plan to finish off today and upload later but here's a couple of photo's of the goodies we were given and what I've done so far.

Mario always has to try on hats and he borrowed Siobhan's  - looks very fetching in red sequince!  Tim gave away raffle prizes - and I was lucky enough to win one, an alterations die.  My vagabond arrived at work on thursday but as I was going to MK couldn't take it home to play :(

I had a fabulous time, thanks to everyone involved and to Tania for arranging the Inchie book presented to Tim.

CCC #32

CCC#32 Ink & Masking
Linda over at Studio L3 set this technique for the challenge this week. It's on page 59 of Tim Holtz's book.
I haven't been keeping up with the challenges but thought I'd give this one a go.  Enjoyed playing with this.

It's been a while - a look back

Haven't update my blog for a while, had an op in early january and just starting to feel like i'm getting back to my old self again!  Have been meaning to do something with my Tim Holtz cruise photos so have put together a slide show. Great memories, and so looking forward to another Tim class - this time in the UK at ArtsyCrafts in Milton Keynes.

Also a couple of configuration boxes I made for Christmas
