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.
