Just popping in quickly as I am in a bit of a mess here ! Having decided to try a few new techniques ( and of course I have chosen the messier ones) I am surrounding by an array of projects which are spread out all over the place at varying drying stages. Rosy and Bailey my two dogletts have been banished from my crafting oasis and are sitting outside my door moaning and scratching to get in. Now they would normally be in here sleeping soundly at my feet but the little so and so’s have been known to eat a couple of my projects in the past, feigning sleep they wait until I leave the room and then pounce ! I am taking no chances this time ” three times bitten four times shy ” I know it should be once bitten but I fell for their cunning plan on three occasions ! Anyway I digress ……..
I discovered a few days ago a fabulous new challenge group called Tag Tuesday who every week will be inspiring us to make a tag, their theme this week is snow. I urge you to pop over and check it out as it is packed full of very talented ladies ( didn’t see any guys ) and amazing inspirational creations . I have to say I was a little intimidated at first but what the heck, nothing ventured nothing gained so I decided to do a little venturing.
I also discovered ( I’m doing a lot of this lately ) another very interesting group of gals DYSU challenge blog who have Let it Snow as their theme, they have also very kindly provided us with a gorgeous photo to inspire us .
Sorry for the poor photos just getting dark here in Greece so had to stick the tag in the plant pot near the window to try and throw a little light on it !
The base is grey card which I smeared with Gesso then added a layer of UTEE mixed with a little glitter. I used the same process on the die cut snow flake curtsey of my Silhouette . I was going for an icy look so added only one layer of UTEE this gives a sort of crystal effect not that you can tell from my photo. I embossed the white card and added glossy accents to the branches and then covered them with glitter . The stuff is everywhere ! No doubt I will have two very blingly dogletts as soon as they gain entry into my crafty den which by the sounds of them will be any minute now as Rosy the porker of the two is throwing all her weight against the door !!
Right am off now to get the Vacuum and remove some of this fairy dust from my surfaces. Will be by later for a nosey at all your fabulousness !
