Book Print

   I was in a bit of a panic last week, my own fault because I had forgotten my new password to get in to my laptop...I left the laptop sitting there for a few days in the hope that I would remember, I didn't so off to the engineer it went. This is what happens when I try and multi task, when my computer suggests that I change my password, I should not have been on the phone while doing it!

There's a new challenge today over at Tag Tuesday and it was my turn to choose the theme.

Book Print, there is so much you can do with it, I love using it.

I have used a large tag and layered it with scraps book paper and some pieces of a napkin. and a paper butterfly cut from scraps.
I then swiped the whole tag with gesso and wiped some areas back with a baby wipe.
After drying I added some stamping, then the mother,or grandmother with her little boy and added the sentiment

I used an offcut of mountboard for this tag..again layering the tag with torn book paper. I then gessoed the tag taking some back off with a wipe.
Once dry I covered the tag with the gorgeous flowery paper napkin.
To finish I added distress ink to the edges of the tag and some netting and garden string.
I hope you can find time and come along to TAG TUESDAY and join in with our challenge.

On the Farm

 Happy sunday everyone...I am trying to get up to date with projects and visiting blogs today and I am failing miserabley.

I have only locked myself out of my laptop...all my craft photos I can't access, so annoying. I just cannot remember my password, so I hope when I ring the computer engineer tomorrow he will be able to help. 

I am using Chrome Book and it's nowhere near as good as my laptop. My photos look dull and just to upload and edit them I had to add an app. Adding my signature to my work took ages because I had to use a different set up, kind of 3 steps forward but 6 back. Going to take me a while to get things as I want them.

So here is my little set of Tags for Valerie's theme over at Tag Tuesday...her theme had me stuck for a while, but I managed to download and print these lovely images.

I hope you can pop over and join in with our challenge at

Use Brown if you wish....

 I was having a rummage in my craft room a couple of weeks ago and came across some off cuts of mount board from a previous project some time ago.

It was perfect for my project for More Mixed Media where the theme is Anything Goes, but with the Option of using the colour Brown.

I remember using paints for the background and swiping over several different colours and texture paste.

To make my tag for MMM I coloured and adhered some mdf cogs and chicken mesh to the base, then added some "rust"

 I found the perfect man..I wish, add to my tag and to finish I added an eye glass, the type the opticians used before modern technology stepped in.

Do pop over and join us in the months challenge...
