Be you bravely Tag - Even if it Sucks project

I recently saw this photo on the Let's Be Creative VIP FB page and had had a similar thought in my mind - to try and create something small several times a week to keep my creativity bubbling away. I often get lost in the big projects and then have nothing to show for it because it's for a post in the future.

So having been getting my first DecoArt Mixed Media team project done for 2018 this is an off-shoot using up leftover paint and creating a small tag for today.

DecoArt Chalky Finish paints with a Prima stencil.

Translucent Media Acrylics, colours mixed with translucent white and a little bit of matte medium and blended over with a sponge.

An Andy Skinner stamp.

A Paper Doll, some tissue tape and small talk sticker quote ......

..... and there we have it.

I'm quite happy with this to get me started in 2018.

I thought I'd also show you one of my Christmas presents from Ken.

Yes it's a light studio with two enormous photo bulbs and lamps a fabulously huge box tent which at the moment is set up in the spare bedroom and oh boy I love it. What a difference in taking my blog photos, even on a grey day or at night time. A little bit of editing in Photoshop Elements and they're done.

Wishing you all a happy, healthy and creative New Year.
