Morning and it's another soggy one! SURPRISE!

Are you surprised to hear it's raining? Me either!!!

I had a great night's sleep last night and didn't wake up till 7! No sign of those pesky birds - HUZZAH!

Yesterday was a day for crafting ..... AGAIN!!! Managed a tag which I'd already started. Some readers may remember my first mini art journal page last week? Well, rather than waste any of those lovely inks I blotted my tag on to the page which gave me a more muted version of the colours used on my journal. The leftover inks make a great background.

Materials used:
  • Tim Holtz tag
  • Leftover inks (Dylusions Vibrant Turquoise and Bubblegum Pink
  • Cosmic Shimmer spray in soft pink
  • Acrylic paint: white and copper
  • Various bottle tops, credit cards to draw addtional artwork
  • Paper Artsy sprig inked using Versafine onyx black and stamped several times without re-inking
  • Sunshine Designs starburst image inked in Versafine onyx black
  • Crystal stickles to highlight
  • Purple buttons (back and front) and two iridescent beads

I'm off to the optician this morning and fear that new glasses may be in order - hope I can find some with added "spex appeal"!!!! (and maybe even a little bling - not so much that I look like Dame Edna but perhaps a bit of sparkle)

Have a fab Tuesday - three more sleeps!
