AWOL - Two Tags

WOW! Has it really been over a month since I have blogged anything?

I have to admit to being in a bad creative funk for the longest time. I had found myself very disillusioned with the craft industry and people in it. I also became very frustrated at my attempts to create, all failing miserably! Which added to my funk.

So, I have been concentrating on my photography, and other things in my life. But I did miss being creative with ink and paper, so thought it was time to get back to crafting, and attempted it again.

I have managed to make a few Art Journal pages, and also a couple of tags. Today I will just show the tags.
The backgrounds were done with Dylusions sprays, on the right tag I put a leafy vine stencil on it and lightly spritz with some white spray ink, I flipped the stencil and put the excess white inked stencil onto the purple tag.

And embossed diecut circle was lightly inked, and added this diecut vine to my tag.

The images are a cute fairy girl from a clear Penny Black set in my stash coloured with copics and fussy cut out.

I have the sentiments with my Dymo embossing labeller.

So there you go, just two simple tags to start me off back into blogging, and crafting!

I plan to hop by all blogs this afternoon.

Thanks for coming to see me.

Hi Annmaree I think we all go through these stages of feeling fed up with the craft world and the old mojo taking long absences but it is lovely to see you back again, although I have enjoyed seeing your pictures on Facebook. I think you have done a wonderful job with these two gorgeous tags the images are so cute the colours look amazing.
