Hello friends, and Happy New Week!

I’m sorry I’m a bit late with posting today for AEDM as we woke up to zero degrees and frost!  I needed to go out and do regular every day activities but having to scrape frost off my car meant that everything took longer that it normally would and so I got home late and only just managed to take some photos before it got too dark – as it was I was crouched right up against the window lol.

today’s art . . .

Today I am sharing a matching pair of tags made in a similar way to the tag I made last Tuesday but there is a difference and I go into details tomorrow when I have more time.  This is my Day 22 offering for Art Every Day Month.

Here they are, don’t they look magical?  I hope so as I am sharing them with Try it on Tuesday where the current theme is Make It Magical!
These tags are made from a cereal box (Special K in case you were wondering) and then gessoed and painted with some acrylic chalk paints.

These lovely ladies are from a Paperartsy stamp set by Lynne Perrella (one of my favourites) and I was in the mood for some trees and birds and nature so I pulled out this set.  Actually I pulled it out to do something else as a gift but ended up making these tags too!

The panels that the stamps are on were watercoloured using a very watered down version of Prussian Blue by Mijello.  It’s usually a much darker blue but I wanted something really light and decided to add a lot of water instead of looking for a lighter paint colour.

After I stuck them into the inside of the tags I felt like there was something missing so I added these words that I found in my stash and they were exactly what I wanted even though I didn’t know what I wanted while I was rummaging through the box!

And here is the photo I took right up against the window in desperation as the light was fading.  Just as I was taking it an amazon courier banged on the door and by the time I got back, there was no more light left for photos so I was lucky to snap it when I did.

Since they are tags, I am also sharing them with Tag Tuesday as their current challenge is Anything Goes.  If you missed any November AEDM posts so far – check them out in the slider below.  I’m on my way to visit you all for yesterday and today!
