12 Days of Christmas Day 3 Tag

Last night after work I decided to attempt another Tim tag.
Again, improvise was my favorite word.
Here is what I came up with.
My tissue tape flower looks pretty darn sad. At least I tried.

Tim Holtz inspired Framed Mirror

Since I do work at Michael's, it seems that when I am walking
from the back of the store to the front, I am always looking
for different things to alter or use on some of my art.
The latest being the unfinished wood framed mirror.
I used many Tim Holtz items and created this:

Here is a Link to it on Picasa so you can zoom and look at it to see more detail.
There is a zoom feature that you can click on and get a better look.

I used paper from the Lost and Found pack, Idea-ology items, Distress inks, Paint dabbers, Grunge Board, you name it, I think I used it.

Hope you like it.

Mini canvas and Bracelet

A friend of mine asked me to make a Mini Canvas to give to her co-worker.
She wanted to give it as a gift.
So, I came up with this. I had fun making it and I am now making more. I will post those later.
It is a mini canvas that can be found at Michael's. It comes with the little
easel and the size is 2.5" square.

My friend Toni and I had bought some Bamboo place mats at Tuesday Morning for a very
nice price.There were brown ones and black ones. We took them apart to use the pieces in a variety of crafts. Toni was clever enough to make this beautiful bracelet. She drilled holes in the sides and used epoxy over Graphic 45 paper! I think it turned out great!

Update with a card and ...

My niece's 18th birthday is coming up so I made this card for her. I nicknamed her
"Dahling" So I though this card would work for her.

I also altered this canvas with trains!! I love trains and I love Graphic 45 paper!
This was a fun project.

CCC #7

I had some time last night to participate in this weeks Challenge.
I had fun doing this technique. In fact all Tim's techniques are
quick and simple with amazing results.
It seems it should take longer to create but that
is not the case. I always get a sense of accomplishment!
Please let me know what you think.
Thank you!

CCC Challenge Part 2

Well, here is my entry for the fragment challenge.
Tim Holtz's book is so darn cool and so easy to follow, that I had to do more then one item!
The first is a mini canvas that I made for a dear friend of mine. The other three are just tags that I will use later on either a scrap page or card or something.
I can't wait for the next one.
Please comment if you like.
