Days 161 - 162, 9 - 10 June 2012: netball and Tim Holtz


Day 161, 9 June 2012 - My View
I spent the morning at the inter-school netball carnival with my daughter. She played four games and had a wonderful time. This photo was looking back over the playing fields, towards the sun. It was funny weather, cold one second, hot the next, cloudy and sunny all at once. The sun is that bright patch in the middle of the cloud. ;-)

Day 162, 10 June 2012 - The best part of the week-end
What a great theme for today. Today was the annual Brisbane Papercrafting Expo at the Brisbane Convention Centre. And it certainly was a highlight of my week-end. I bought myself an OTT light, so I can set up  my crafty corner in the {dark} rumpus room and move off the dining room table.  I bought some new Hero Arts background stamps {yay!} and a few other little bits and pieces. The highlight, though, was to see Tim Holtz demonstrating his products. In particular, he was working with alcohol inks. He's fantastic! I learned heaps and also developed a massive desire for a full set of alcohol inks {oh dear!}. Here he is.
I like this photo for all the colour and product, but I thought it was a bit "clean" for Tim Holtz, so I edited it a little.
There we go, that's better, more grungy!
