Pleats, Folds and Tucks


I hope everyone is well this week and perhaps enjoying some signs of spring if you're in the northern hemisphere!

I was rather struck be something Arnoldo said the other week about embracing your imperfections so I pinched his phrase for my tag this week.  I seem to waste rather too much time and energy fretting if things aren't right when I'm crafting so I'm going to try to chill a little and 'embrace my imperfection'!!

The base of my tag is a mixture of distress paint, distress stain and crackle paint (maybe some gesso thrown in - I can't remember!)  The folding is the technique I have used to make my die cut flower appear 3D.

Will pop back tomorrow to have a look at all your wonderful tags.
A bientot
