Tuesday Taggers - Age It.
This week at Tuesday Taggers the theme is to 'Age It', distress it, make it look old. So here is what I have done.
The tag was originally white so I grunged it up using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Weathered Wood, Milled Lavender and Tea Dye colours. The stamps are some new ones I have just bought - the wild flowers are from Gel-a-tins and the dragon fly is from Inkadinkadoo, I haven't had much chance to play with them yet so I'm looking forward to that, mind you with the boys on school holiday for the next 2 weeks that might be easier said than done! The dragon fly also has some pigment powder in gold on it to give a little shimmer but I don't think it show up in the photograph.
I don't have much in the way of Mojo at the moment, I've had some sad news from the UK. My sister, Carol, who has Multiple Sclerosis, only has a few days left to live. When we left for Australia 10months ago, I said my 'goodbyes' to her then and knew it would be the last time I would see her but getting the phonecall that she won't be with us much longer has shaken me and strangely come as a shock. Needless to say all the feelings of 'guilt' have reared their ugly heads again - not that I could do anything if I were there but that doesn't stop me feeling bad. Anyway, that's enough from me, this is beginning to feel like therapy! Have a good day everyone. Jo x
