Create Art...

Hi folks...I'm one of those folks who is more comfortable standing up when I'm crafting so the old body was in danger of seizing up completely after a couple of days sitting down stitching and they do say...a change is as good as a rest so I decided to take some time out and head back to the cubbyhole to have some fun...inspired by Shari Carroll's gorgeous Mixed Medium project for Simon Says can check out Shari's project and step by step videos HERE.
I had a whole load of fun putting my own spin on decorating one of Tim's fabulous Etcetera Tags with Tissue Paper, Cheesecloth, Ranger Opague Crackle Texture Paste and regular Texture Paste applied through the Speckles Layering Stencil to create layers of texture on the background...

love the crackle effect on the Tattered Poinsettia die-cuts
I added torn pieces of Prima Salvage District papers
Idea-ology Textile Surfaces Linen to a chipboard panel and decorated it with Design Tape and a Watch Cameo...
finishing off with Quote Chips and Prima Art Stones
I love the simplicity of this project and it will be hanging in my "watching TV/family room/chill out" space very soon. In the meantime...the Friday girls and I are off on a "procuring stitching bits and pieces" shopping expedition today...they don't know yet but I'm today's designated driver and lunch payment person so if they don't want to go hungry or be left at the nearest bus stop...I'm sure they'll be happy to comply with my "it's my way or the highway" powers of persuasion.
Have a great weekend whatever you are planning and I'll see you all on Monday with my DT project for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
Toodle-oo for now
Hugs Kath xxx
