Feeling Dreamy...

...Do you ever have those days where you spend most of the time with your head in the clouds...dreaming of stuff that may happen, that you would like to happen .. or is it just me??? Today has been one of those days...lovely and sunny outside but far too cold to be sitting pretending it is summertime just yet...so I sat dreaming of sunshine and heat, sandy beaches and long, cool pina colada's...hey, one day the dream may come true...til then, I will return to the Room of Stash and make art instead LOL




I used some of the new DI's to colour the tag base...Wild Honey and Crushed Olive smooshed onto a craft sheet, spritzed with PP's in a Mini Mister and then a dash of Forest Moss around the edges to bring it all in. The background stamping was done using Rusty Hinge and the sentiment...one of my faves BTW, was done using Forest Moss. The flower is a little Prima jobby that has been lurking in my stash for yonks...and I made a little clippy thingy (I know, just like the new Idea-ology ones that I neeeed so badly) for the little Adage Ticket, which was also coloured with the same inks. Ooh, and remember that little old date stamp that Grim found??? Well I have used that on here too...how cool, it actually has an X on the day part of it...cool huh?




The music paper was coloured the same way...it is so fragile though, it tore in half...so I figured instead of huffing and puffing and starting again, I would use it top and bottom of the tag. I added Film Strip, a mini pin and a Philosophy tag and a couple of tiny staples to the tag as a finishing touch...All of the stamping is from Mr T'Holtz's collections...don'tcha just love his stamps???

I am soooo cold, it feels like it's -10 here...so I have just run a bath, deep (like nostril level) and I have filled it full of Lush potions and there are so many bubbles that I will be almost invisible..I am off to wallow, hippo like, until I turn into a prune ... TTFN

No, but I do have days where I scowl at the dishes waiting to be washed in the sink. Does that count? :)

Oh, wow! I don't know if I can wait till Ally Pally to get the rest of those DI's, that crushed olive is brill! the prima rose is beautiful.

Fab tag, that wild honey inkpad is my new fave. I dream too, that I've won the lotto and can buy all the stash I could ever want (and build an extension to house it all).
