Hi Everybody,
it's Tuesday already and here we are again -
where does the time go?

Our new theme is 'Poetry'.

I was busy preparing lots of other projects today, so time was a bit short for my tag. I used a piece of hand-painted paper, which was stamped with crackle and swirl stamps while wet. I make BG papers as much as I can with leftover paints, so there is always something handy when I need it. At least if I manage to find it!

I wrote my poetry onto it with my white pen, and mounted it onto black scrap card, and added a little tassel as embellishment - finished!

Here you can see the patterning in the background.

The evening sky had these wonderful ice-cream colours a couple of days back, so pretty.

Here's wishing you all a great week. Take care, have fun, 
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  5. What a great verse and pretty tag! I make ahead lots of papers and tags when I'm gelli printing, so I know what you mean. Great idea! Sandy Leigh

  6. What a terrific way of describing the landscape sky - icecream colours is what they are.
    I'm a maker of background too!
    There are lovely lines in your poem!


Great to have you here, thanks for commenting and hope to see you again soon!
