Today’s mess is brought to you via inspiration from Tim’s 12 Tags of Christmas – Day 10.

(You can click on the photo to see it larger… if you dare.)


Those of you who have been following my blog know I am determined to work through the techniques from all 12 of Tim’s Tags from last year. Well, I’m nearly there!  (When I think of the folks who  managed to finish them all in the month of December, I’m astounded. )

This project is kind of a new thing for me, it’s a canvas wall art piece.  It will hang in my sewing room when complete, so the theme word is “Create” and the focal point is the dress from die cut.

There’s a lot of creative freedom in a piece like this: it doesn’t have to fit into a scrapbook page protector, it doesn’t have to be mailable like a card, it doesn’t have to fit properly, the way a garment does.  You can put anything and everything you want pretty much anywhere you want.  I have been, and will continue to do so until I say it’s done. 🙂

I’ll give details and supplies when it is done, but for now, I gotta head out!

Happy Woyww, ya’ll.

P.S.  If you’ve stumbled across this post and are wondering what in the world WOYWW is, wonder no more!  It’s What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday, the day we all spend way too much time in a blog hop, checking out the desks of other crafty, creative people from around the world.  It’s way fun!

  1. Yes, they really are water soluble. Amazing, eh! Have a look at Leandra’s paperartsy blog. She has done lovely things with them! And, yes, I don’t know how people managed to keep up with those 12 TH tags, right before Christmas. I loved the look of them, but couldn’t possibly keep up. Happy WOYWW, RosA #24

  2. I love, love mixed media, and these canvases are great. I’m not big on tags, because I can’t figure out how to use them. I see you have the same rub-n-buff I have. I guess that shows what mass marketing can do. I’m # 25 this week, but you knew that because you’ve been by already!

  3. Yes, they really are water soluble! Amazing eh? Have a look at Leandra’s Paperartsy blog for lots more info and lovely examples.

  10. I am rubbish at following through on things like that …should as the techniques would be useful. I see you have the metalic rub on …I have re found my love for them again recently.

  11. Thanks for the peak of your desk on this WOYWW.
    It looks like you’re very busy. I look at those tags every year and think I’ll give them a go but never do. Love your idea though, I may have to try that myself.

    Happy Crafting!

  12. I, too, was impressed with those people that managed to make the 12 tags too – just know I couldn’t keep up. However, I like your idea of doing it in your own time. Many thanks for your much appreciated earlier visit. I hope you are having a great day. Elizabeth x #2

  13. Ah Sandy, you sum up creative freedom very well. But it’s the lack of rules and borders that have some of us frozen to the spot! Glad you’re enjoying….you’ve got some fab ingredients on your desk…must dig out my metallic rub ons!

  14. Well it looks as though you’re all prepared for your projects judging by your desk. The dress form will be perfect for your sewing room canvas – enjoy the freedom of your creativity!

    Thanks for already stopping by to see me 🙂

  18. Sorry, I’ve made multiple comments here, but for some reason I thought my first attempts didn’t get through. Oh well!

  19. Can’t wait to see your finished project, I am not much of an artist but your large work surface covered in goodies looks fun, happy woyww

  20. I am always totally impressed when people manage to fit stuff like that in… especially when December is such a manic month for having to get things done. Love the idea of canvas!!
