Inches and Twinchies for PaperArtsy

Hi Everyone and Welcome 

Hope you've all had a lovely day and are all set to enjoy a nice relaxing evening. 
Tonight, I'm super excited to be over on PaperArtsy blog as a Guest blogger sharing a couple of projects I have created for their current topic 'Inchies and Twinchies'.
Such a great topic that I really enjoyed creating for - I had so much fun! 
 Here's a quick look at the two projects I have created using some of PaperArtsy fabulous products 

A portrait photo panel

and a portrait photo cube.

It would be lovely if you could join me over on PaperArtsy's blog where I am sharing more photos and details about the creativity and the inspiration behind the projects.

Tag Friday at A Vintage Journey, August 2019

Hi Everyone and Welcome

Today over at A Vintage Journey it's Tag Friday! 
I'm sure many of you are familiar with our Tag Friday tradition but for those of you who aren't let me explain. When there are 5 Fridays in the month, the 5th Friday sees some of the Creative Guides create and share a tag. There are no rules or themes just a chance for us to follow our creative muse, go with the flow and create a tag however which way we choose.
You  are also invited to join in with our Tag Friday tradition and hope you will share with us your tag creativity. 
To enter all you need to do is link one or as many tags that you have created this month. 
Entries must be submitted by midnight on the day the new challenge starts for the following month (Sept 6th) 
Jennie, our challenge host this month will chose one tag as our Pinworthy Tag and it will be pinned to our pinterest board and showcased in the following months Winners post.

For my tag I decided to finally use some of my 'unused' stash and I'm ashamed to say I have a lot!! 
I think I would have to create a fair few tags to use all that I have!! 
I hang my head in shame! 

So which of the many made the cut ? Well, the tag itself is one as its a Tim Holtz Etcetera tag that I bought when they were first released - a couple of years ago now I think it was. 
The other is a StencilGirl® products stencil that I treated myself to last year.  It's called 'Strength Face'  and is designed by Pam Carriker.  

I also drew from my well used stash: PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paints (Concrete, Antarctica, Little Black Dress) DecoArt Modelling paste and a Tim Holtz layering stencil (Stripes). 
There's nothing complicated about the creativity it pretty much speaks for itself.  I'm sure my finished tag won't be to everyone's taste but I love the powerful dramatic image that both emotes and evokes. 
So here's are a  few photos of my tag 

'Moments'. 






If you haven't already be sure to stop by A Vintage Journey to see a fabulous gallery of tags created by very talented teamies. Don't forget you can join in with us too. So get linking your tags up as we are really looking forward to seeing all your tag creativity.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and for all the lovely kind words you always leave for my art.   They are greatly appreciated as are all your visits and follows. 
Hope you all have a lovely weekend
Take Care 
and
keep on the 'happy side!
