Monday, Tags and Postcards

Hi everybody, hope you all had a good weekend, and a happy Mothers Day. Here the weekend was, as usual, filled with scintillating conversations with myself and the heavy sounds of silence. At least I had time to craft and paint, so I suppose I should be thankful for small mercies, even when it's sometimes hard.

It's the second week of the Tag challenge at The Cheerful Stamp Pad, for which I made 2 tags. The background paper is a freebie from Free vintage digital stamps. The steampunk trunk and animals on the second tag is an image from Inka Heaton at *Altered Artifacts*, the other images are from my stash.

Then I finished off two more postcards, very grungy again....

And last but not least, I painted a canvas for next week's PPF, here is a small piece as *sneak peek*:

Okay, that was all for today. Hope you all have a good day, take care and thanks for visiting!

  12. Ooooh, those tags are absolutely gorgeous!!! I love all the dimensions and details - and! I thought of you yesterday - I went to an art museum for Mother's Day and there was the biggest (Maybe a 6 x 8 foot canvas) textural piece of art with imbedded glitter! It reminded me of your most recent abstract work!
    Looking forward to the rest of this for PPF, xoxo!
