At last

My mojo seems to be returning,  yesterday I just hit a brick wall.  I was attempting to make this tag but nothing I tried was working.  I came back to it this afternoon and well, as you can see it came together.  I wanted something bright, but not too bright.  I'd already made the tag using the brown cardstock,  so I made some red and black flowers,  used some gilding wax on them after embossing them,  added the musical notes,  but it still needed something more. So out came the letters I bought last week,   and to finish it off I put on some white flowers and added the twisted wires, which you can't really see in this photo.

I made the background using masks and stamps,  just random stamping.   The little crown was recycled from a card. 

On this photo you can see the wire.  It's jewellry wire, I just wrapped it round my pokey tool.  The small flowers are from a punch, the bigger ones are from a die.

I also had a lovely surprise in the morning, the lady who had the fire popped round to thank me for letting her use my flat.  All I did was ask her to come in and sit down so that the paramedics could check her over, nothing special.  But she gave me a beautiful bunch of flowers.   Her flat is now back to normal,  her kitchen has been repaired, and the drier replaced.

I also heard from the art therapy people, just have to make a phone call to arrange a meeting.  They also sent information about other art therapy groups.  I'll soon be spoilt for choice. 

I do hope the weather perks up,  I'm fed up of these grey skies and rain.   All for now.

This tag is just beautiful, Cassidy. I love the combination of colours,especially the red with the brown, it really pops. How nice to be appreciated and flowers are always a welcome gift. Art therapy sounds like something all of us could enjoy ... sounds perfect for you :) Elizabeth xx
