Be True to Who you Are.....

Hi, am back again with another Hanging.  The paper mache' hanging is from Paper Artsy.

The background was achieved using Acrylic paints and Vaseline,  the little squares are mountboard which have been stamped with Inkadinkado stamps, coloured with water colours and given a coat of Glossy Acccents.  The Lady stamp is by Lost Coast Designs,  coloured,  glossed in the same way as the Stampboard.  The words are from Creative Expressions.
To be honest a lot of these bits and pieces were in my 'Done and Ready to Go' box, but as time is of the essence at the moment this is where they ended up and I don't think they look too bad all together.

How are you doing in your preparations for Christmas gifts, am sure you are doing a lot better than me.  Thank you for taking the time to pop in at this busy time and take care of yourselves, hugs Annette xx
