Twelve Tags of 2013- December. The Final Tag of the Year !
Well I've made it to the end of Tim's wonderful Twelve Tags of 2013 Challenge with only a day to spare ! As always Tim has shown us some fabulous ideas and brilliant techniques. Over the year, I've had several favourites and I shall certainly be adding this last one to the list! I've never used Tim's Frosted Film or Wendy Vecchi's Clearly for Art, prior to making this tag, and I can see I've been missing out. They work brilliantly together and I'm already thinking of other possibilities. That, I think, is the essence of the Twelve Tags Challenge, it's a chance to get to grips with the products and to either treat it as a tutorial, following Tim's instructions to the letter, or to use the basic idea and improvise with the supplies you have and take it in whichever direction you wish. I've used the Tattered Florals Die and made a 3d flower in place of the Tattered Poinsetta, which has been very elusive this season; I've yet to get my hands on one ! Still the Tattered Florals remains one of my all time favourites and I'm so looking forward to getting the big one ! So may I wish all my lovely blog friends, as well as the lovely Tim and Mario, A Very Happy New Year !
Ever since I can remember, I have enjoyed dabbling with a variety of crafts. My earliest crafting memories are of spending hours doing 'corking' or 'french Knitting' at my grandmother's house, using a wooden cotton reel with four short nails tapped into it and endless tangles of coloured wool. I also have fond memories of those little knitting kits, that came in a container that was made of the same material as an egg box. Happy days!
My interests now, range from textiles to ceramics, with knitting,felting, sewing and card making in between. I've reached a stage where I feel I know a little about a lot of different crafts. I'm still striving to become a master of at least one!
My favourite craft adventures at the moment, include digital collaging using PSP Elements, rubber stamp making with my imagpac kit and getting to know my Craft Robo.
When not crafting or looking after my family, I work part-time as a teacher, supporting visually impaired children.I also teach ceramics in a primary school and do occasional art residencies in mainly primary and special schools. Phew! I didn't realise I was that busy.
