Tim’s tag for August

Well it's lovely to be home and this is my first non-scheduled post for three weeks, what can I say? I wanted to keep my blog ticking over but I haven't been able to comment in all that time as the resort wifi would grind to a halt very quickly and my Ipad decided to be temperamental leaving me unable to access the internet for most of the time. But I will make up for it next week. I just have to get some projects finished for almost immediate deadlines and I will be out enjoying crafty days on Saturday and Sunday, so hopefully I will catch up with all of you who have been so kind to stay with me asap.

On to my Tim tag, amongst these DT and workshop deadlines I have managed to get my Tim tag completed this week. It follows his guidelines fairly closely but I have also followed my muse, as he said to do, and made changes as I was going along.


I love Tim’s film strip and using the mini portraits in it, to me it creates such a great embellishment and focal point, adding more interest and detail. I collect and cut all the portraits from his paper pads to use this way.


You can see it’s a very busy and textured background and the elements sit beautifully over the top.


Can you live simply and seek adventures? I think so, I think we should seek new adventures every day and for me many of those are by experimenting with ideas, styles and techniques so that I can grow and be excited by the projects I produce.


What adventures have you had lately?


I’ll be out both days this weekend, a day with Andy Skinner tomorrow and a PaperArtsy day on Sunday. Lots of wonderful ‘play’.


Stamp sets I used are – Merchantile, Classics #2, Classics #3

Thanks Tim for another inspiring tag, I look forward to seeing your creative make every month and of course September is not that far away now is it?? I’m off to link this up to Tim’s blog.

Take care , my love and hugs to you all and have a great weekend..
