Playing with Numbers


Over at Artful Times this week they have a theme of spray away. I took this photo as I didn't want to spray too much and thought most of it might end up getting covered up.


These are the 3 sprays I used. They are all browns.


I didn't really know where I was going with it, I was just playing, but this is my finished piece. I managed to sneak in some of my gelli plate pages, along with tags, stamped images, tissue tape wooden pieces and various other bits and bobs.


Close up of the tissue tape and some the the metal embellies.


I also added a vellum and corrugated tattered florals flower and a stamped butterfly and one covered in UTEE as over at Anything But a Card they have a theme of spring forward and are suggesting butterflies and flowers.


Another close up of the stitching on the tag.


And finally a close up of the sprayed ink.

A Vintage Journey have a theme of spring flowers and I'm hoping mine qualifies as I've used two of T!M's tattered florals!!

Well Debs will have to share cos I want some too! This is amazing Sam! So many interesting elements but somehow it almost gives an air of C&S which it obviously isn't. Love all the stitching and the design is beautifully balanced. Fabulous stuff!
