'Famous Person' CJ pages

I have been mithering over this swap I am in for weeks and weeks. I have been searching the web, researching all the usual candidates. I even thought of Abraham Lincoln whose forebears came from the village I live in - but as it is for a stamping swap, I couldn't come up with suitable stamps.

Until today that is - I had a light bulb moment.

Well he is famous isn't he? Just you google his name.

He hasn't invented the atom, or the heart bypass.

He's not had a hit record, flown to the moon, or cooked for the Queen.

He's very messy, loves being covered in ink - and drives women WILD.

Did you guess - it's TIM HOLTZ
I have never met him - won any of his Blog Candy - but I do 'stalk' his blog and get inspiration from his work. Lets face it, I need all the help I can get.

As you all know I am a beginner - but I have used everything from 'Tim'.

His techniques, his stamps, his Adirondack inks - Sail boat blue, Stream, Pitch black, and Archival black pigment. Grunge board and crackle accents. Phew!

I only hope that the recipient likes the pages.

Oh Lottie this is amazing. The colour, the stamps and of course Tim. Who isn't just a little bit in love with him, he's gorgeous and such an inspiration.
The recipient of this will be over the moon.
