Fungi Tag

I am so late posting my Fungi/Mushroom Tag for Tag Tuesday Everything recently hasn't gone to plan, so I am desperately trying to "catch up".
The theme for the tag challenge was chosen by fellow teamie Wendy...and it was a challenge for me,lol.

The base of my tag was coloured with oxide inks..then I used random stamps to create a back ground. The images were freebies that I collected over the years..
The little flower fairy/elf is minus the wings and I sat him on the toadstool.

Love is....

Today I am sharing my design project for More Mixed Media 
I used some card that I embossed to cover this fab little wooden house shape..colouring it with distress inks. The sides were painted with red acrylic paint.

I painted the wooden heart in deep red and once it was completely dry I went over it with crackle glaze.

I found a set of wings in my stash..with them I just used the non crackle glaze and once they and the heart was dry I added them to the house.
Finally adding the quote....
Why not come over and join in with our challenge this month..anything Mixed Media goes, with an optional colour twist, which is Red.

Heart Tag

The sun is shining here this morning, but it is bitterly cold...roll on the Spring.
I've popped in this morning to share my "Heart Tag" that I made for the challenge over at Tag Tuesday
The theme was chosen by teamie Michele.

My tag was literally made from stuff I had laying around on my craft table.
The tag was die cut from some spare card that was painted and smeared with paints.I rubber stamped over that. The heart was from a project I created last year, but I had accidentally dropped and some of the attachments came off. The measuring tape was stamped on paper and was an off-cut from another project.

Reversed Canvas

Yay...Rhedd's Creative Spirit is back with their first challenge for 2019.
As always it is anything goes..but must be Altered Art, definitely no papercrafted items.
My project this month is a 5"x 5" (12.5 x 12.5cms) canvas that I reversed.

I reversed the canvas and sanded the inside edges of the frame, painted it all over with acrylic paint.

I also painted a square inside the canvas and attached a brass steampunk style clock.
 I rubber stamped Dream and a Code Number then used some bronze guilding wax and rubbed that in to some areas of the frame.

Next I added the embellishments that I had previously painted, crackled etc.
Once all the elements were glued in place I added the Tim Holts ancestor image.
To finish I added finally some "rust "patina for effect.

I do hope you drop by Rhedd's and take part in our can find us here at

True Friends.

Just dropping in with a quickie tag I have made for the current challenge over at Tag Tuesday
The theme is New Beginnings and was chosen by anything new qualifies.

The rubber stamp I have used is new to me..I bought it in a bundle of unused stamps from a declutter group on is now one of my favourites...reminds me of my grandsons and great grandsons.
I stamped the image, then coloured the clothing..finally distressing the edges of the tag...

New Beginnings...

Tag Tuesday are currently running their first challenge for 2019....and the host this time is Valerie.
Her theme is New Beginnings..and by her definition you can create your tag using whatever you like, so long as it is new....

Here is my Tag....

My new item is the lovely vintage backing paper. I was given a bundle of paper pads for christmas and I particularly liked this paper because of the advertising of the hot air balloon.

Do check out Tag Tuesday for our challenge.

Chunky Atc

My first design team project for 2019 and it's for More Mixed Media.
The challenge there this month is Mixed Media with an optional twist..and the twist is BLUE
I coloured some card with ink spray in blue and covered the chunky atc.

I then stamped the fabulous fish and sentiment and left the ink to thoroughly dry. Once dry I used peeled paint to stamp the seaweed randomly all over the chunky Atc.
I coloured the fish in bright colours to make it really stand out.

I'm keeping this chunky atc as it makes a great paper weight...
