DAY 3 OF 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS


Brillioso I have something at long last the Tim Holtz Die Cut Bird..........wheeeeeeeee, but after that its improvise all the way......... Am still trying to get through the 12 days using recycled products and so far so good.

Tag and Bird cut from left over thick Watercolour paper, the Moss is Flowersoft dyed with Alcohol Inks. Sparkly Organza Ribbon off a present and an ear-ring fragment for the centre of the flower. Stamped script over scraps of tissue for the flower, very old glitter instead of tinsel. Ooh and nearly forgot the little picture on the side was once on a Christmas Gift.

Stamps used: PaperArtsy, Inkadinkado, TJ Designs and Debbi Moore. Apart from the improvisations I have followed Tim Holtz technique for this tag......yea......

Artyjen.blogspot is running a fun gallery for anyone who wants to add their tags to it. There are some really great interpretations over there, well worth a visit if you get the time.

I still cannot get into the kitchen because now the sealing they have put on the floor has to dry and my cooker is up in the air on its side............and will be that way until Monday afternoon when they put the new floor in...... aah well, not long to wait now.

Be seeing you again soon I hope. Am now off to visit all my crafty friends blogs and have a nosey round.....ooh we do love doing that don't we...............lol Take care and stay warm, and thank you for sticking with me........ Annette x
