This past week I've been working on cards to send to people who were kind enough to RAK* me after my surgery from the All Things Tim list. Thank you Stacy, Colleen and Martha. I was so happy to receive their RAKs. They all made my day.
Below are cards I made based on Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas 2011. I loved the snowman tag. Here is the link to view it in case you have never seen this tag.
(I hope the link works when I post it. It's the first time I've included a link on my blog.)
I never know what to do with tags once they are made. The people I send my art to I think prefer receiving a card, at least in my mind. Who knows I could be wrong. Anyhoo, I took Tim's idea for the snowman tag and tried to use the techniques on cards. I changed them up as you can see. I did leave the "celebrate today" as a tag and sent it to one of my RAKers. Though, I can't remember who's getting that one.
I like to cool blue-gray colors of the cards and the wintery feel it gives. We are not getting our usual snow falls here in Central Illinois so making these cards made it feel a little more like winter. And I didn't have to shovel any snow.
|This is for my in-laws anniversary.|
I hope you enjoyed my recent attempts at winter art. I am looking forward to sharing more of my art and other things as they pop into my head. I enjoyed blog hopping while I was unable to create any art of my own. My work does not compare to some of the gorgeous creations out there but I hope you will enjoy my work and return from time to time and see what develops.
Love, Peace, Joy and Art be yours in 2012.
