Anne's Tag & Card
Anne's 'Altered' Tag
Actual Instagram image
Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you all enjoyed the Bank Holiday Weekend, I don't know where ours went, it just flew!! We went down to the May Fair, the weather wasn't the best which I always think is so sad when people go to so much trouble to arrange these events and organise things like the Dog Show etc only to have it ruined by the Great British Bank Holiday Weather!!! I was looking forward to seeing our "Granddog" take part in the various categories of the Dog show, it would have been hilarious, he usually wins on cuteness!!
I feel so privileged to be able to share with you Anne's first ever attempt at 'mixed media' or Altered Art' !! Anne, I cannot believe that this is your first attempt!!, I can see that you have added texture to the background by using a mask and what looks like texture paste, they really do add colour and dimension as well as giving texture, I love the colours you have used too, blending them to cover the tag so perfectly, then picking a ribbon to add that picks out one of the colours perfectly. The little touch of lace and the die cut doily behind your gorgeous Julie Nutall Stamped Doll really adds the perfect finishing touch, giving yet more texture and I love how you have taken your design 'over the edge' of the tag. I hope you go on to make many more Mixed Media projects Anne as you are naturally talented, I am sure it will be very well received by Amber, who will hang it in her room with pride! Thank you so much for allowing me to share your first ever project xxx
Abi, your card for your friend is just a genius idea, after all what teenage girl doesn't use Instagram these days!! You have made a perfect replica of the Instagram logo for your card design which just shows amazing talent, you should be very proud of yourself!! I have added the actual Instagram logo so that anyone looking in can see how accurate your card is. For those of you that are wondering what Instagram is ....
"Instagram is a fun and quirky way to share your life with friends through a series of pictures. Snap a photo with your mobile phone, then choose a filter to transform the image into a memory to keep around forever"
There, you have learnt something new today, every day's a school day !!!
Thank you so much Abi, for letting me share your card today xxx
Sue I hope you have a fun week away with Chris, RJ, Gemma and Christopher, it sounds like it will be a few days of rest and relaxation, enjoy, you need to take it easy, you are getting old now you know !!! Lol xx
Pat, I hope you can get Doreen seen today some time as her legs sound a little worrying to me, yes you expect swelling in the newly operated leg but not the other one, does she not still have her compression stockings on?? It isn't right that you and Pete are taking full responsibility for her care, its not fair on you, plus I know that you aged going to be busy with trips for most of May and are worried about her coping! Make sure you go in with her and have your say! X
Sonia, so glad you finished your parents Album at last, I hope you have taken lots of photos, I would love to feature it for 'mixed craft Saturday' if you don't mind xx
Brenda, hopefully a quieter day for you, until there is all the unpacking to do that is !!
Please take it easy my lovely, I don't think you have sat and relaxed all week! Xxx
It was lovely to receive some of your challenge photos yesterday, both for this weeks Sketch and the "old die challenge" thank you xx
I hope that you all have a good day !
Love and hugs
