Good morning folks.
Can't believe it's Friday already, where has this week gone? Not much that I can share with you at the moment so I thought I'd share these tags with you. I've been participating in Andy Skinner's Timeworn techniques online workshop and though I've not really had a chance to incorporate the techniques into projects yet these are a couple of my practice tags. So first is peeled paint. I did a few but these are the two I like the most. Playing with fire to do these but fun too.

 What I'm really enjoying  is discovering even more ways of adding dimension and texture. This next one is pitted and chipped; like an old gas bottle. Time consuming with 6 layers of paint and hairspray and salt in the mix too but the results are great!
So there's my latest playtimes, I've been doing these inbetween work and other projects so I am making use of the time. I'm looking forward to incorporating these techniques in a project soon! Have some creative fun this Friday everyone.

Your tags are fantastic Neil. I agree the peeled paint effect is a brilliant way to add texture. Haven't tried the chipped & pitted one yet, Yours looks superb. I hadn't realised that it involved so much work. Have yourself a great weekend my friend. Pxx

Methinks you are kidding us and you really went out and found lovely textured bits of wood and peeled painted metal. LOL! They are amazingly effective.
