A Mixed Bag

Yesterday I spent most of the day painting again, and On Friday all will be revealed for *Paint Party Friday*.
But I couldn't resist doing a bit of crafting. I am visiting a friend today, and she gets a page each month for the calendar I gave her for Christmas. As it's holiday time, I made another *bathing beauty* tag, and fixed it to some striped paper, which was lying about on my working space. Added a bit of golden glass glitter as sand and a shell, and it was finished. The shell is not a real one, I used *mold and pour* to make a mould, pressed a shell into it and filled it with some modelling plaster. The good thing about the home made ones is that you can paint them any colour you need, and as the reverse is flat, they are easy to stick onto paper or card. A quick and easy page this month.

Then I made a summer tag for the *Blog Challenge Garden* , where Rebecca wants to see summer this week. Hope you soon feel better Rebecca, and enjoy your break! I used corrugated cardboard, painted with gold acrylic paint and distressed with TH inks. I added some music paper, a transparency with flowers, and some German scrap images with roses and a little girl.

And then I saw the three little angel heads and thought of the sketch for *Less is More*
But this is definately the last one for this week!
And VERY IMPORTANT! June at Dezinaworld is celebrating her 500th follower soon. So hop on over to her blog and see what wonderful blog candy she is offering!

Okay, that was it for today. Have a great day, take care, and thanks for stopping by!

  27. At last, the day is coming to an end and I'm just getting around to my favorite blogs.


    Your bathing beauty tag is terrific. I think one of those signs should be put in place at our beaches. Bathing suits, I think, are a thing of the past. Now they wear next to nothing. Oh grandma would be most displeased.

    Great art, Valerie.
