Not a WOYWW but Paper Artsy and Tim Holtz

So, yet again no WOYWW, but I have SUCH a good excuse as I am off in a mo to the PaperArtsy event with Tim Holtz! I have been so looking forward to this, after a year of more medical tests and injections than I ever thought possible and 5 months trying to do 2 full time jobs (hard enough as it is....add to that days of feeling so low and sick that I don't even craft!!) finally its here!

So, over the next couple of days I am hoping I will meet lots of new like minded people, what a great opportunity to swap ideas, techniques and hopefully contacts.

Someone came up with the great idea of presenting Tim with a collection of inchies to celebrate his time here. Well, that sounded like a great idea....

Then I realised, I had no idea what it was!!! So, off for a bit of surfing....and found out its a 1" by 1" piece of art..

So here is mine (this is what was on my desk until 10 minutes ago when I packed it!.

Its on vintage music paper, with a martha stewart punch of a branch punched out of thin metal and coloured with alcohol inks, the nest is made with raw wool and needle felted and the bird cut out of grunge paper. I added some vintage text and some rock candy distressing.....voila!

Anyway, expect LOTS of photos when I get back.

Happy Crafting
