I have been busy with family things for the past couple of weeks and so I haven't been around hardly and I have missed you all so much ;0) So I thought I would play along with Paint Party Friday I hope you like my canvass this week, I didn't space the lettering out very well but hey what art is perfect (don't think any of mine are lol) so I hope you forgive the imperfections and enjoy it in all it's imperfect glory ;0) You can click on the photos for a larger view. Love Dawn xx

Oh how laps have I been in my blogging lately? Well the only answer I can think of is, very lol. But family always comes first and I have been so busy, what with seeing one of my sons off to university and now I am over my operation fully I feel more able to play with paint and paper again. So here is a little something I made. I seem to have travel on my mind lately he he. It's all this Autumn weather I long to be away (should imagine we all do at some time) I have altered a cardboard frame with clear EP having first inked the frame. Only a small project but ever so cute don't ya think? Love Dawn xx

Hello every one ;0) I have now taken one of my boys to London and settled him in at his University digs. It's been a very busy time and art work has had to come second (Family first). So I haven't been around much I know. I have seen a swap for tags, how cool I thought. This will get me going, I love making tags. So I am joining the lovely Heather For her first swap/challenge.
For the swap you have to make three tags size 3x5 inches, each tag has a different theme made by Heather This is my version of 'Vintage Birds' with some stamps and a little help from the Graphic Fairy and Vintage Moth Some stamps and a wee bit of time ;0)
This is my version of the 'Day Dreamer' Theme image from Crafty Individuals and flowers & bird painstakingly cut from Laura Ashley DP ;0) Some stenciling and inking and some paint covered with clear crackle paint to add to the texture. If you enlarge the photos you will also see that the back ground is also covered in clear crackle. This has warped the tag a little but I'm sure it will flatten out with a weight on it for a while ;0)
And last but by no means least is my take on 'Season of mellow fruitfulness (Autumnal)' Some die cut leaves in co'ordinations card stock for texture both used as stencils and actual die cuts. Some stamping on paint chip (love using them) and actual leaf imprint on some friendly plastic and metallic rub on to show the leaf detail. I do hope you like these tags ;0) one of them could be yours if you join in the swap I hope you play along. Love Dawn xx
