So I finally got some plasterers tape last week and could not wait to use it.. I undid the roll straight away and stuck it all over this page with heaps of modpodge.. I then went over it with gesso over the top just lightly. Got the baby wipes out and painted with turquoise paint. I had the men done sitting on my desk with there little tag from the other week, when I changed my mind about the theme. So that was what I was wanting to use as I liked them and thought they fitted well on this textured background. I also used pages from the dictionary that I just brought from the second hand book store. They are really thin so popped Tim Holtz washi tape down them to give them support. I had scraps of lace left over from another project and I sewed them on under the tags.. I don't have a clue why I ripped the tag then sewed it together like that but I liked it.. Its distressed all smudged and grunged with walnut distress ink around all the edges. I really liked this quote it fitted with everything I am thinking at the moment. Its funny how a quote just sticks out and says pick me, pick me..
Quote is "You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream." C. S. Lewis.
I am going to link this up with the following.
