Yet more distressed tags - the last ones for now!

Made one more batch of distressed tags yesterday, now I have a visitor coming this afternoon and need to get my kichen looking something like a kitchen and not quite so much like a witch`s workshop, so will have to put everything away and fly once through on my steam broom. Used more or less the same colours again (from TH -what else?) - forest moss, rusty hinge, wild honey, cracked saphire, crushed glassed, crushed sage and olive. Wanted to try to do a bit of jungle theme where everything gets swallowed up by time, ticking relentlessly by....now you know why I can`t sleep at night, always thinking of things like that! Used flowers, gem-stones, some rub-ons, clock charms, skulls etc., and some of the stamped motives have been *stickled* and then glazed with crackle varnish. Was fun making them, won`t be soooooo much fun clearing up! Thanks for looking!

  1. You are a true artist, you forget everything to pursue your love of art, and get disturbed now and then when you see the chaos around you...Look away, and carry on doing what you were made for, and it's not housework! Sarah
