Simple Tags

 I've decided to go with "Simple Tags" this year, with simple posts.
Who has time to really read all the blogs out there? Who just looks at the pictures and moves on?
Just wondering. I know I am pressed for time....
 This is a #8 tag with a stencil and Grunge Paste added. Then several layers of Distress Inks and some Copper Inka Gold.
The final layer is stamped images. Then I use a piece of plain chipboard to mount it on with a Tarnished Brass Distress Paint edge.
I sanded and buffed certain areas then layered two words onto manila cardstock I'd colored with Distress Inks.
I really like how the Copper shows up on the stenciling, and the sanding creates a brighter color around the Chicken Wire Stenciled areas.

Bracing for the severe Winter temperatures here tomorrow and just watching it snow today....time to Create Art!

Happy New Year! I know you must be so busy, but I for one love your art, so anything you post will be appreciated and inspiring. How about once a month do something other than a tag? Would that be too often? Thanks, Sue

Absolutely wonderful tag.

I always read your entire blog post and learn so much from each of them.

Stay warm!
