Tim's November Tag

Hi there

I know I have been a bad blogger this year, but I am busy making changes to my life in the real world so that I can be more creative for me... which hopefully will mean blogging more!!!!

I have been guest teaching mixed media and the like at stores since 2011 and it has taken its toll on me and my family.

I have my own studio where I teach acrylics on canvas to adults Monday to Thursday mornings and Tuesday and Thursday evenings... ie: 6 classes a week.  This is my "bread and butter money."  I have been doing this for 19 years!

Then I have been doing the external guest teaching so I could fund my crafting hobby.  Unfortunately the time it takes to design projects, kit them and teach them on Fridays as well as week-ends, has taken its toll on both me and my family.


I have decided to only teach acrylics on canvas at my studio next year.   I will not be doing any external guest teaching.

I will however be teaching the owners of the various stores and any other teachers who would like to learn from me.  This way what I have started will not end...

I am keen to pass on what I know so the industry grows and the store owners grow.

The last class I will be guest teaching for this year will be Tim's technique tags on 3 December at Art and Ink!  Then I am taking a year off.

So here you see my versions of the November and October tags.  If you would like to see how Tim created them you can click these links:  October tag and November tag
