For this great challenge I wanted to share a page from my flip calendar. It is easy to see Tim's influence here. I used his movers and shapers dies as well as his Love Struck Die. You can see more details by visiting my blog "My Crafty Life On The Internet".
Astrid's timely challenge inspired me to use Tim's In the Bag die to create two sweet vintage Valentine treat bags. I used lots of Idea-ology items, crackle paint, stenciling and inks. I have lots of pictures and a description of how I made these sweet Vintage Valentine Treat Bags on my blog post here.
I decided to use the opportunity to journal the fact that in April it will be 40 years since my husband and I first started going out together - where does the time go ? This mixed media page is very much in my own style but using Tim's products - tissue tape, stamps, texture paste, layering stencils, ink, spray and dies - which goes to show how versatile they are in mixed media pieces. There are more details on my blog if you wish to join me!
I have long wanted to produce a project based on Tim’s Heart and Soul project so Astrid’s challenge theme was the ideal opportunity. Please click here to see how I made my Valentines Heart with Soul.
I was so happy that Astrid chose "Love is in the Air" for our next challenge, as I needed that encouragement to create something a little sweet for my honey! Tim came to the rescue with his movers and shapers, stencil and stamps and all added to a mixed media background of paints, stains and crackle! Stop by for all the details HERE.
I made a Memory album for this project which I gave to my Husband Chris, to hold photographs of our Wedding Anniversaries over the years. Please pop over HERE to my blog to see close up shots of my detail.
I think I should call this red on red don't you? I bet you can guess I've made a Valentine card for my hubby using lots of Tim goodies. It has layers of papers, inks, paints, die-cuts and ephemera, all mounted on a kraft card. I wonder what he will make of it?
Well I hope we have inspired you and given you some ideas, so hopefully you will play along and share with us what love means to you! It's not necessary to use Tim Holtz products, but as we are a Tim inspired challenge, please make sure to tell us what Tim's influence in your creation is.
Happy Valentines to you all and much love from your creative guides!!
