Crafting Dan Stylee and other things!

DanstyleeAs many of you know my mate Dan came to play last week for a few days and during a marathon crafting session we decided it would be fun to create some art in each other's style.
So this tag was made by me ... Dan stylee ... apart from a little extra that Dan would never have used ... Can you tell what it is yet? I did my best to create a tag in Dan's wonderful style. You can find Dan here ... marks out of 10 please ... Did I succeed? Even if you don't fancy marking it ... you gotta go look at what Dan made in my style ... I told him I had progressed from wax crayons too :0) Just kidding ... there is n't a wax crayon in sight :0)MOTW
We really did have a marathon session and I also got the opportunity to get my new Tim stamp out ... you know Tim ... the man that can toboggan down a toboggan run without a toboggan ... faster than the speed of light with just a pair of round nosed pliers and a small section of ball chain ... He is called David and I LOVE him... nearly as much as I love Lord Tim of Holtz ... but not quite :0) I have had the idea of Class7 making a man with a map for a face and calling it a man of the world since I was a nipper ... sadly my drawing skills were never quite up to the challenge so you can imagine my euphoria when Tim ... the man I am going to meet in five more sleeps **Squeal** designed this little beauty :0)
And finally ... finally these are my lovely ladies from my Monday class ... Did n't they do a grand job of my metal magic class? ... so a big bloggy wave to Kerry, Lucille, Carol, Allyson and June ... I had a fab time girlies ... hope you all did too!
That's all folks!

Awesome pieces. You always do incredible work. Can't wait to see the next piece.

Dan said...

This looks very like something I might have made - so well done! :) It was fun to try on a different style for a while! And that rhymes :)

Angie said...

Brilliant ....10/10 for style but I also love what Dan did with your style...maybe 9/10. 'Man of the world' is amazing ...yes I agree Sir Tim of De Stress should see what you can do with his creations .xx

Sid said...

Interesting challenge Linda, but yu have made a great job in the style of Dan, that David stamp is super too !

TinaB said...

Fab challenge xxx Really does look like Dan's work xx

Catherine said...

I've only just discovered stamping, via your blog! I love your work and I've checked out Dan's too. I watched one of his tutorials and I loved it. I think I'll have to give it a go soon.

Helen said...

Love what you did with that David stamp, it looks great. That's one ambition then, and hey - only 5 more sleeps to your next one!! See, we're all counting down with you.

Tinkertaylor said...

Am I missing something? so whats happening in 5 sleeps.... HAHA. Love the David card.

Julia Dunnit said...

It's a lovely tag, really, I love Dan's style very much and it is so far out my comfort zone tha tI can only lok at your take on his style in some awe. Not sure he's have punched the border though..?
Judikins have a fab David stamp too..not that you need to know now!!

Rosie said...

That's exactly what I thought - the border punch is a dead giveaway! Isn't it fab to work out of your comfort zone though, and I am SO envious of your lovely crafty session together. Off to look at Dan's blog now ....

Carmen said...

I think the border punch too :P Love both your takes on each others works. Isn't fab how you've both captured a part of each others style while still retaining a part of your own :)

Just had a phonecall from Tim, I'm his secret PA you know, it's all off. Cancelled because of dinkle burns while toboganning without a toboggan. Sorry and all that. *g*

kirsticoo said...

You did a fab job Linda - I love it...xoxo

voodoo vixen said...

Brilliant Dan'esque' tag Linda!! Nope, Dan would probably have not done the cute border and I give you 10/10 for your tag. I give you 11/10 for the man of the world tag... it's stunning and you really must take it with you in 5 sleeps!!

just brilliant Dan style tag Linda I give you a 10 also, but the pretty border punch may not of been a Dan thing, love your David card and yes you should take it when you meet the man himself in person, loving your art and the classes look such fun xx

karenm said...

Linda,
I have to ask, where are you going to meet, Lord Tim of Holtz! or as we call him Saint Tim of the blessed distress inks!

tim holtz said...

okay now THIS is a funny post. i've never been described like this quite before and it made me laugh out loud. your art is "brilliant" as you would say and the map face of david is so cool. it's all about the creative journey and you are definitely on the adventure of a lifetime. see you soon i hear... tim

craftimamma said...

Only 9/10 'cos you used the border punch, Lol! Otherwise brilliant take on Dan's style. He didn't do bad on your's either.

Fab work both of you.

Linda, you got a post from the Divine Tim! How cool is that. Great tag, great stamp. Every time I see one of your new creations I'm so impressed by your creativity. I'm just hoping if I do enough classes with you that it will rub off on me eventually.
