I've been playing along with the Tim Holtz Tags for 1 whole year now! That was my new year's resolution last year, to create something every month and I was able to do it. It was tough to find time sometimes, but it was a fun adventure!
This year my artistic new years resolution is to complete all the tags from the Tim Holtz Chemestry 102 course. I'm on my way, but still have the dreaded "alcohol ink" section to go. Alchohol inks are still a mystery to me so I will tackle the lessons as soon as my order of alcohol inks arrive. I have some alcohol ink pens and I'm still trying to figure out how they work.
Here is my January 2014 tag.
As I go back to work tomorrow, I look forward this year to finishing up my many software "inventions" at work, and moving on to new work projects. I also look forward to creating many 2014 art projects just for fun.
A Happy New Year to everyone! Thanks for being my creative teachers and idea people this past year! You have become my creative brothers and sisters related by our common love of the creative arts! We all have similar glue, paint, ink, and dye under our fingernails and we all have similar massive stashes of craft supplies stashed in little containers all over the place!!! I love that about us! You are my people!
Here are some photos I took of my little people!
New baby as yoda in the hat I crocheted for him. (He has a baby star wars room)
New baby in the Christmas outfit I crocheted for him.
Toddler's first trick-or-treating in a fancy neighborhood.
New grand-puppy "Punkin" the toy poodle. She's very small, about the size of a guinea pig, and moves fast so I will probably never be able to capture a photo of her that's in focus!
