hope you are keeping warm on this cold day, we don’t have snow in this part of Kent, but the frost has stayed and its now 10.30 am, so it must have been a cold night, brrr.
This second lockdown is quite difficult, I am working from home and have been since March and the lack of physical discussions other than a blank laptop screen conducting a ghost like meeting, never seeing your colleagues is not great, but at least I have a job, I use the desk I craft at in my craft room to work on, and sometimes I get a “bit” distracted with all of my goodies around me, especially new stamps, I keep them near, because who files away their new goodies! well not me, I need to stroke them and possibly use them before I put them away, and funnily enough, it’s what I do, am I weird? or I am weird !
Anyway, to get on with the subject in hand, I have been playing with tags this week, and have 2 to show you, I have listed the ingredients for one of them, to give you an idea of what I have used, but they are put together in a similar way.
I have produced a Video and that is up on my YouTube channel. You may notice my mantra is to use what you have, so you can use any ingredients and brands that you have in your stash, however, I have used a Papercraft Society box, this one by the lovely Bee Crafty ladies, Box 8, and some stash items.
Hope you enjoy messing around mixed media style, have a good week, and next week I am thinking Lurve, that’ll be Valentines then.
Thanks for getting this far
