Happy Anniversary Tim and March Tag 2013

Congratulations to Tim Holtz on his 10th anniversary of working with Ranger. For many of us he has been a truly inspirational person sharing his creativity and encouraging us to find our own.
Happy Anniversary Tim and here's to many more years of continuing the journey.

The vintage Easter theme for Tim's tag this month is wonderful, I just had to do mine as close as I could, I love learning from the maestro himself.


The full details are on Tim's blog

I had to make some changes, the colour of the rabbit, which then influenced the colours of my ribbons. But otherwise I more-or-less stayed totally in the same vein.



Supplies
Alcohol Inks - Ginger and Copper
Dies - Styled labels, Mini Bunny, Tapered Fringe, Tattered Banners
Brown tinsel twine
Paint - Peeled paint Distress Paint,   Claudine Hellmuth acrylic - Landscape Green, Dab of Yellow,   
Eco-Friendly - Waterfall, Peony, Clamshell.   Basic white acrylic.
Papers - Seasonal stash, kraft core


My favourite bit? These gorgeous painted metal flowers stuck on memo pins. 

Hope you had a great Mother's Day yesterday for those of you in the UK, especially if you were treated to some special pressies and surprises. I had some lovely plants in baskets and some money for some new crafty supplies. With all the family round for dinner, it was a fabulous day.

Snow is in the air as I write - what happened to the signs of Spring????

Enjoy the week ahead, I hope you get some crafting time.

Good Morning Brenda, I certainly agree with you that TH has inspired most of us in one way or another and he has the great ability to explain how he does it too. I'm still learning. I love your tag and that little bunny looks so at home amid the flowers and the grass. Enjoy your Day. Hugs Rita xx
