As you may know I am one of the many people who 'play along' with Tag Tuesday and as the blog is so popular there is a long waiting list to join the 'Tag Team' . However, I was so pleased last week because Carolyn posted my 'Gardening' tag on the Tag Tuesday Blog and as a result I received lots of lovely comments. So if any of you who left comments and have popped over to visit me here I would like to take this chance to thank you and also to everyone who commented here on my blog as well.
This weeks theme is 'Found Objects' and this gave me an opportunity to use some stamps from an old Stamp Album I had as a child which I found in a box in the garage.
The stamps are still fixed into the album but are quite fragile and some of them will just come away if you touch them so these three were easy to remove.
For the background I scanned the first couple of pages in the book and printed them out. They were already coloured with age but I enhanced the vintage look with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, gesso and a black oil pastel.I then attached the stamps and touched them up with the same ink, gesso and pastel. I finished it off with a copper coloured eylet and hemp twine.
I photographed a few of the stamps and I thought I would share this one with you as I thought it was a lovely stamp.
The weather has been beautiful here and I had some photos from a day out to Astley Hall I wanted to post today but I'll have to pop back and do it another time because the weather is to nice today to spend it at the computer.
Bye for now. x
