So posting pics of yesterdays Tag fest. This was Tag number 2 with a patriotic flavour. I cut up one of the Union Jack papers, and a plainish blue paper, did the stamping. Used the Portobello Road stamps, Big Ben, and the double decker bus, and the postage stamp with the clock face. Wanted to stick with the red, white and blue theme.
I used one of the Indigo Blu stamps to add some background interest, used the TH distress ink pads. Went wrong with the first attempt, got my alternate colours mixed up! Was a tad distracted by film. My excuse and I'm sticking to it. Fiddly bits came next, stamping stuff and then cutting out, colouring as well. Then much head scratching of what else to put on tag, I like to think I craft organically, that means I only have a vague idea of what I want to do, and no idea of how to do it! A search of stash revealed a few interested bits and bobs... some trial and a lot of error and, finally, drum roll please...
Too tired for any crafting today, plus by the time I got back home, and had recovered from the shopping it was a bit late to start getting out the craft stuff. I would have done some had I been on my own, but mum is here and so my time is not my own. That's how it is, I have to find a balance of finding time for me, and for mum. It can be tricky at times, her view of me going off to my bedroom is me being antisocial! My bedroom is my private space, so it has to be more than just somewhere to sleep. I try my best to spend the mornings, or most of them with mum, depends on whether there is shopping to be done, or housework... but I do try to get all the chores done in the morning, so the afternoons are mine. Mum has had the opportunity and encouragement to join varoius groups, but she won't, so I've made it clear that I am not here solely to amuse her.
Tomorrow I'm off to do IT stuff for a friend. So no crafting till Wednesday :-(
