DragonsDream - TIO - A

This fortnight, Elizabeth has chosen the letter A and "not a usual tag shape". Hmmmm!

In the end I went for a heart, and drew round a wooden heart shape I have in my stash supplies (waiting to be decorated!) I used Kraft cardstock.

I painted it with Fresco paint from Paperartsy, though to my shame I can't remember what colour I used - I think it was Moonlight.

I stencilled grunge paste through the "art is" stencil by Crafters Workshop and let it dry. I used a film cannister to add some circles with Little Black Dress paint.





Took some Prima flowers and a Paperartsy (JoFirth-Young) sentiment stamp and (hopefully) artfully draped the flowers down the heart.  At this point I realised I hadn't actually used an A word - apart from the 'art is' stencil!  Yikes... inspiration (of a sort) came overnight when I thought of - Abundance - and abundance of flowers, lol!!



We look forward to seeing what you come up with and how many different tag shapes you can make.

This is so pretty and spring-like, Helen. I love the colour - whatever it is and your idea of Abundance is great! I love that shape of heart too and the raised stencilling on it. Julie Ann xxx
