The Next Tim Holtz

This young man is absolutely amazing.  If you haven't subscribed to his youtube channel, you can watch his videos at , or follow his blog at .  What's so amazing is that he is only 15 years old, and his art style is much more advanced than mine!  He's up there with the greats.  His tutorials are fantastic.  Thanks Drew, and keep on scrappin'!

ATC Challenges With A Twist (For ATC Sisterhood)

I made this ATC for the "ATC Challenges With a Twist" challenge for ATC Sisterhood. I used a looooot of Glimmer Mist, my new favorite! You can't really tell in pics but this is really sparkly. You also can't really tell unless you look closely, but I used black aluminum metal roses for the center of the flower and for the dots next to the cards greeting. I put black lace behind the first layer of the ATC, and tore slits (and curled the paper) to show off the lace. Supa Dupa Fun!
