A Timmy Fix!

BF0803

Well ... the days of old and getting up close to Lord Tim of Holtz are gone ... However ... I am still stroking his tag on a daily basis ... just in case it turns into a lamp type vessel and magically transports him ... or me ... in the meantime ... I have to make do with a daily dose of Timmy You tube or DVD's or indeed his fabulous books. You know Tim ... the man that can stop the earth turning for as long as he likes with just a drop of glossy accents and a Victorian Velvet re-inker!BFb0803

Anyways ... there I was on the Bubbly Funk site and I came across his fragment tutorial. Now I may have seen it before but I can't actually remember it ... to cut a very long story short ... I watched ... I listened ... I learned and then I made :0)

You can check out all the paper details etc., I used for this ickle boys note book over on the Bubbly Scrumptious blog today ... I will see you later ... I am off for a spot of tag stroking or maybe even another tutorial :0)

This is gorgeous! I've never used fragments and probably should avoid all things "Tim" until my bank balance recovers from his recent visit to the UK ;)

this is a great make Linda - my son would love it as its not too predictable - I always do some kind of footy card!!!

If you carry on stroking - apparently it makes you blind!!!

Great project Linda, and a fab technique for sure. You know don't you, that stroking it won't make it any bigger...

Great work, Linda, and such a cool idea. Not sure all that stroking is good for you, or for his tag :0
