Everything I Need to Know...

Last weekend I was fortunate to get to take a class from THE Tim Holtz in Shawnee, KS at Stampers Ink. The ladies from the store asked all of the attendees to make a page about themselves for an album they were going to present to him.

Over Memorial Day weekend I set out to create a page about me. Imagine my surprise when I couldn't find a photo of myself to use! I mean, I read things in magazines and other blogs about how important it is to get out from behind the camera and include yourself in your scrapbooks, but surely, I thought, this doesn't apply to me!

Well dear friends, yes. Yes it does!

Fortunately my mom put her photography skills to work and we set up an impromptu photoshoot. Can you believe that this "headshot" was taken along a bedroom wall with incandescent lights! Ah, the magic of photoshop.  ;)

  • Scalloped paper is spritzed with Ranger's Adirondack Color Wash.
  • Internal square is a piece of paper from the Tim Holtz resist pad inked with distress inks and finished on the edges with gold dabber.
  • The tags are made from clay coated paper and colored with distress ink using a watercoloring technique.
