So between the sniffles and the snuffles I've found time to play. Linda's second technique involved using the portfolio pastels, which I just happened to pick up whilst in Utah. Linda created a journal page, but as you'll know by now, I don't do journalling, so I used the same techniques but on the old faithful, a tag.
To see how it was done and to join in the fun, hop over to the PaperArtsy blog.
I've also just stumbled across a new challenge site over at Country View Crafts courtesy of looking on Julia's blog - thanks Julia. So I am also entering my tag as their first challenge theme is 'pick n mix' and lots of things have definitely been picked and mixed on this tag!!
