Today is a very special one for the design team members at Sizzix because we get an opportunity to honor our Design Team Leader/ Community Manager, Tammy Hall Tutterow. Since I joined the team this spring, I’ve had a chance to witness Tammy’s incredible work ethic, her commitment to the crafting community, the love and concern she shows for our team, and lastly how darn talented and prolific a crafter she is in her own right!
So several of the Sizzix designers and I made projects to honor Tammy and show her our heartfelt thanks. You will see along the hop mostly tags in the diverse range of styles which make our team so special. All of these projects shall all reach her by post shortly. This is mine.
Getting to know Tammy, I have learned that she loves the garden, too. So I crushed some dried Queen Anne’s Lace blossoms between my palms, and sprinkled them onto my stenciled texture paste while the medium was still wet.
I started these flowers from seed very easily this spring and, folks, the beneficial insects go bonkers over this stuff, literally swarming the umbels- I think the large flat landing strip blossoms are attractive to all sorts of lovely bugs because they can sit on top and dine comfortably on nectar. It’s quite a feeling to stand amidst all that buzzing energy and to know I’ve planted something that sustains life. In a sense, Tammy is like the gardener, working tirelessly to sustain us, to provide a structure which allows us to do our best, and to support us in every way she can. Love you, Tammy Hall Tutterow!
Since my texture was peach and silver, I kept the same palette in my blossom. I used the same technique illustrated in my Wellness Journal video that you may have seen me post last week with Sizzix.
Silver leaves intermingled with some burnt iridescent fibers that I had tied up top…
Thank you, Tammy, for all the hard work you do to make Sizzix the best company it can be, and for your devotion to supporting, encouraging, and strengthening this team. It’s an honor to work with you.
Here are all the stops on today’s surprise Thank You Tammy Blog Hop!
