Dylusions and more......

Good morning peeps and hope you are all well.
Today I've a nice mixed bag of stuff to share with you. Firstly; over at The Craft Barn this week we are exploring vintage and today I'm sharing a journal page in the vintage style. All the details are HERE and a little peek for you!
Then it's a new week over at Try it on Tuesday. This week is anything goes with the addition of acetate. So you can do whatever you wish but you need to include acetate on your project. There is plenty of inspiration from the team over HERE so do pop on by and join in the fun.
I made a tag
 I cut two tags, one black and one in acetate.  I embossed both with an embossing folder and used acrylic paint to distress the acetate. I just love the shabby look that the paint gives. I die cut the bird and stamped and coloured it with distress ink. I attached a small pine cone twig with wire and stuck the bird down.
I attached the sentiments with a tiny attacher and added some ribbon to the top. Can you see how shabby distress it looks in the close up! I love it!
Are you still with me? Now it's back to Saturday's Ranger workshop and session 2 with Dyan Reaveley!

This session was all about altering book pages; lovely, inky and messy! Using her range of spray inks and masks and lots of water we started to alter a book.
Here is mine in progress, I did get a bit further than this on the day but I actually finished it this morning; well, sort of finished it!

Lots of lovely layers of colour and masking and stamping. The little pockets for tags are a great way of adding interest too. The sentiment is very true; it's stamped onto a sticky back canvas ATC and I used the offcuts to doodle on and add to the page too.
So there you have it; hope you are still awake in the back there. Now I'm off, my studio is calling my name.
Have a blessed and creative day !
