Tags and ATC challenge for August

Hi there folks. Hopefully, the blog posts will become more frequent when I become quicker at crafting. I've been making some secret stuff that I can't blog about until next week, so that has kept me very busy. Also, making various cards for family birthdays has kept me away from the love of my life - no, not my OH, but Art Journaling! Hope to get on again next week and blog some pages. But my offering tonight is some very late Tags and ATCs for a challenge the very talented Fraser Ives organises for us each month! Unfortunately, I only have the finished designs as I forgot to take pics as I went along. Promise to do better! The theme for this challenge is: Texture. So there are layers of: Golden coarse pumice gel, followed by yummy fresco paints and stencils, followed by Golden 3D gel through a stencil and topped with ephemera and treasure gold! The butterflies are by Stampotique and stamped on text print attached to Ranger's mouldable acetate by Wendy Vecchi. Great stuff. Phew. At least, that's what I think I did. Thanks for dropping by. I'd love to know you've been!

Now a close up of the texture.

    2. Second attempt! Thanks Sam, you are so encouraging. I think it's the addition of the fresco 'limelight' that really brightens everything up. Love that colour.
