It's Dentist Time again....

Good morning you all! It's Thursday and that means the Dentist will be waiting for me again....I can already hear the money dropping out of my purse and into his!
Yesterday I didn't get much done, but I DID manage to get rid of a whole sackful of things I cleared out, so that was good. Apart from that, I managed one tag and a digital layout. This is the first time that I have made a complete LO with Photoshop. The photo is another *clocky* one I made some time back and digitally altered. Then I took it to the copy-shop and had it printed out in 12x12 format, so I have something in the hand. It was fun, but I think I prefer working the conventional way.


The tag has been made for the GC 118 *Crimpers* Challenge at Gingersnaps. I splodged a tag with TH distress inks in wild honey and spiced marmalade and stamped it with a background stamp from LaBlanche in Stazon black. Then I crimped the tag, and a second one, a little larger made of some patterned gold cardstock. I cut a diamond shape out of a scrap of hologram card in gold, and mounted the flowers, berries and skeleton leaves with silicon glue to form a little bouquet. I added a scrap of black ribbon and that was it.


And this came from Narda yesterday:


That's all for today, and don't forget on Monday there will be a little GIVEAWAY on my blog....stay tuned! Have a great day, take care and thanks for visiting!

  11. Can't seem to make my brain cells absorb the digital techniques..but truly can't image not having crusty dried glue, ink and paint on my fingers most days! Sweet timepiece though :) And I do adore the crimped tag...

    Now do give the dentist a stern eye and let him know you will tolerate no nonsense in your mouth! Come home pain free, I would be having a stiff high test coffee! Hugs,

  12. Poor you having to visit the dentist again, I hope it isn't too painful for you.

    You are clever being able to do the digital stuff - I'm a paint and glue on the fingers kinda girl (which I know you prefer too), and just can't get my head round the technical IT whizzy stuff.
