Tagging Along!

Good morning everyone and as it is my first post of 2014 a Happy New Year!  A little late unfortunately as Shetland has been experiencing wifi and mobile problems after a cable was cut in Edinburgh nearly two weeks ago!  My apologies for not having been a great visitor to your blogs these last couple of weeks, but fingers crossed it seems to be working at the moment!  

I don't make New Year resolutions but I have some thoughts of what I want to try and join in with this year and one of those is Tim's Tags - I managed just one last year. 

I just loved this month's tag, the basis of which is metal and paint and you can see all the details HERE on Tim's blog.

As I didn't have any Black Distress Paint I used my favourite Dusty Concord (I have it in all the medias).  I am amazed at the different colours/shades you can get just using one colour - Distress Stains, Distress Inks and Distress Paint. (My mother would have called this colour "puce"! - I much prefer Dusty Concord.) 

I also used a different clock and centred my pieces around travel rather than time. I really enjoyed making this tag and it has set me up for the rest of the month.  I hope you will have the time to play along too.

It is a quiet month for me as I have January off from two DTs! What will I do with myself? ....... I can't wait to start experimenting with these lovely PaperArtsy Fresco Paints and Crackle Glaze - all very new to me so very exciting!

Thanks for visiting!

A fantastic start to Tim's 2014 tags, just love the Dusty Concord and the elements you have used to put it together. Missed seeing you around, hoped all was ok and glad to have you back.
Stay warm.

Wonderful tag and quite fitting for the start of a new year! I love the compass rose and the beautiful butterfly!
Hmm... I think dusty concord sounds much nicer than puce!
