A Happy Tag


Over at Stampotique this week Kaz wants us to show her a bit of happy.  So what could make me happier than firstly making a tag, using a combination of texture paste and puff paint through a stencil and just watching it evolve - the texture is fabulous.


Then painting it with the fabulous PaperArtsy freso paints.  Stamping some of my favourite Stampotique images and using my distress ink markers to colour them in.

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
