Lovely Trees

The lovely ladies of The Artful Times have chosen "Trees" for the fortnightly theme, take a look at their DT projects just great. Such a lovely theme I am a tree hugger I just love em. I did a tag with the natural look so I cut out in brown card. Tore a page from an old nature book from a charity shop (I confess I find book tearing really difficult it seem almost sacrilege, but is very effective). I washed a little guesso over the page to dull the words and then dabbed through masks of sequin waste and harlequin dark red and dark green and stamped butterflies. I punched out 3 small tags inked the edges and rubbed in sepia then stamped the 3 different size trees from my clarity stamps, such gorgeous stamps. I strung them together and put at a slight angle for a bit of perspective. finished with a bit of lace, button and safety pin. Thanks for stopping by to look and your comments mean so much. Hugs All Sandra X

Sandra - I have a solution for you. Why not photocopy some pages from a book and then you can use those for tearing. That way you would not harm the book at all.

I love using torn script in my work but I keep forgetting to do it. Thanks for reminding me about it with your delightful tree tag.

Thanks also for joining us at Artful Times.

Hugs, Neet x
