Finding Mr Mojo – Tag 2

This is my take on Tim's March 2012 tag, I don’t have the wood stamp so I used a background crackle stamp with walnut stain and vintage photo distress inks and cappuccino perfect pearls mist.
P1130927
The mosaic butterflies were made as Tim’s were but I used different embossing powder for the ‘grout’.
P1130926
The background worked really well but I had difficulty getting a photo of the shimmer left by the PPs.
P1130931
This sort of shows it.
P1130929
I painted the metal flower with the distress paints ……..
P1130930
….. and used the Way with Words set again for the sentiment.
P1130939
The mosaic butterflies were fiddly but I love the finish to them. Get the full details HERE at Tim’s blog.

More practice achieved which is refreshing my memory of techniques to keep in the toolkit. Maybe Mr Mojo is thinking he ought to be packing his bags to come home. eh? Mind you from a lot of the comments I have received it seems as there are a whole bunch of them awol at the moment. I guess they are chilling out together somewhere and enjoying the break. Lets hope they decide to return soon.

Off to see my Sis today, looking forward to our crafty chat as I haven’t seen her for a while. I hope you have something good planned.

Happy days.

This is brilliant Brenda..Mr Mojo is singing out loud. The crackle effect worked so well and the grouted butterflies are superb. By the way..the ponds are in Carshalton ;0) x

Buttons said...

LOVE that background Brenda. It looks dimensional even though it's flat and the mosaic butterflies are beautiful. Hope you have a great day and a good old catch up today. Hugs, Jenny x

Hello Brenda
Greta crackle effect, I don't have much luck creating big cracks, The Blue/Brown palette is always an eye pleaser. Your butterflies are the pièce de résistance on this Tag for sure.

That crackle background looks so real that I want to touch it........ (so much better than the original wood background in my opinion) - fabulous. I love your butterflies, it was such a fun technique and one I had forgotten about completely. I think Mr Mojo is well and truly home again. Hugs, Anne x

Fab tag! Love the crackle background. The butterflies are cool but seem to take a lot of fussy work. :)

Astrid Maclean said...

Totally love your tag Brenda and that background with the crackle is way better than Mr Holtzes original IMHO. A fab idea too to go over old techniques to help Mr Mojo find his way home. Looking at this creation though I think he is pretty much there already, - love those butterflies!!

Anita Houston said...
