Hello friends
Hope you are good!
Its nearly February.....YAY! Im so pleased January is nearly out of the way....
I'm certainly not a fan of Jan!

Just a quick post today,  to share the last of my Creativation samples with you....

This sample is a real mash up of different Tim Holtz products... Ranger inks, Tim's distress paints, Idea-ology along with Sizzix
This piece lived on my desk for quite along time....I just kept adding lots of different elements to it as and when I could, even now looking at it I still want to add more!
The base is an Idea-ology panel frame, which I painted up and distressed using distress paints. 
I added this cool paper doll from Idea-ology , along with a mix up of ephemera...
The pipes and cogs are the cool dies from Sizzix/Tim Holtz called "Industrial" and "Pipes"
These dies are a must....I really loved using them
I added lots of Idea-ology arrows, coloured with distress paints. 
 The ticket is from another Sizzix die "Tiny tabs and tags" (another must have die!)
The background is from the Memoranda paper stash, I've sewn into it, added splats of paint and also added lots of different washi tapes...
To finish I added some of the new Quote chips (Idea-ology)these can be coloured with paint or inks...

Again a Huge thank you to Tim, Mario, Paula and all the other lovely designers.....
its been so much fun to be a part of such a fabulous team!
As always feel free to leave a comment, I really appreciate you popping by...
Have a great week!
bye for now
