A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Tag your it challenge-Time for Tea

This weeks Tag your it challenge had me thinking cake, cake,cake and after seeing all of the gorgeous DT tags with cakes on them I was glad I didn't have any in the house cos I could feel my resolve not to eat any sweet stuff quickly slipping away from me...lol

So bearing that in mind... I decided to go for something a little bit different and use my favourite Mona stamp. I often wonder what she was thinking when her portrait was painted.
So I decided that Mona wishes.....
She was sharing secrets over a cup of tea rofl...

Wonder what she could tell us if she could speak.... ok... ok.... I'm a nutter... I know...lol
I used more of the 'In with the old' paper from Funkyfairys papercrafts and hand sewed (did you get that... hand sewed) some tiny beads onto the main tag and threaded some to attach the smaller tag. I really must get me some of those gorgeous half beads that lots of peeps are using cos they look adorable and much easier than getting out the needle and thread. If I stick normal beads on they have a tendency to roll off after a while... no matter what glue I use :(
Hope the sun is shining where you are... it's been a lovely bright day here for a change, it's so nice to look out and see the sun... always makes me feel more alert and happy to be doing something :D
hugs
Chris xx

I love the Mona Lisa image. Your tag is lovely.
I think I would love to make a Mona Lisa stamp with a switcho-chango mouth that you could alter for her mood.
I love all the extras attached to your piece.
