Tim's Tags for 2013

My July tag for this month, as it is raining and freezing here in Melbourne, Australia
I thought I would use Tim's umbrella man, but still go with his colour scheme and his instructions from his tag on this blog which can be found here.

Back Again


I'm back finally updating my blog, sorry I have been away so long, time gets away from you when you are having fun. The 2 photos above are tags I have completed along with the Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2013 and I have loved doing them, they are all different techniques using of course Timmy's products when to hand and others when not. LOL
I have been doing these tags with Jo Hughes, which has also been fun and gives us a good excuse to get together and have good time.

Class Diary of Faces




I have for the past few months been attending an online class A diary of Faces by Sharon Tomlinson
these are some of the painting that I have done, we are going around the world painting copies of original old masters paintings

This has been the most amazing class I have ever done, Sharon's classes are wonderful, she has enabled me to be confident enough to have a go. If you ever have the chance to do a class with her go for it. Sorry about  the sideways photos I could not figure out how to change,

Back Again






I thought I had better try and show you all some of the work that I have been doing over the last few months , I have been very neglectful in attending to my blog.

This first piece of work was for a very good friends youngest daughter Sarah's 18th birthday,hard to believe this that I saw this beautiful young lady in hospital when she was born and look at her now.
