RELAX



Relax, yeh right lol but this lady is very relaxed in her lovely chair. There are quite a few techniques on this tag. I have been at it with paint and wax again ;0) not forgetting a transfer as well. This is for a couple of  challenges one is a brand new one, there only in their 2nd week and they are Paint Party Friday (PPF) This is going to be a popular one I can tell. From what I have read there are no specifics as long as you use paint, I think they will be more challenging as it goes on, with types of paint to use etc. The other challenge is also a new one, I am excited about this one to. This is over at the lovely Linda's blog and it's called Grunge Monday. pop over for details about this challenge needless to say Tim Holtz is a continuing theme.



Here is a close up, like I said plenty of paint and wax, some old book pages and the torso from Tim's new die cut, sewing room. I love it so much lol. Well that's it for today I hope you have a chance to comment, I love hearing what you have to say and it also gives me a chance to pop along to a new blog if you haven't commented before. A big hello to my new followers to Josie & Janna so lovely to see you and I hope you enjoy the journey I am on, I have been to both blogs and they are lovely and full of talent. It's time to get a move on with the rest of the day. Love always Dawn
