Multi and mixed media crusading again ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend is going well.  The next couple of posts will be quick ones, lol.  We had my lovely family visit us yesterday and today both of us are moving very slowly and rather painfully, lol, got to laugh or else I’ll cry or whimper with the pain lol!   Here is what I have to share today …
Lots of yummy techniques and much fun to create! 
A final look

 Created for me and especially for these Challenges

We Love to Create Challenge #20 Anything Mixed Media or Creative Goes

There are a lot of techniques used to create this tag.  If anyone would like me to do a step by step I am happy to do so in future.  But for today I am trying to keep my post and computer time quick and short.  As I’ve said I'm happy to share how I used the SNATs, acrylic paint or the friendly plastic – just let me know and I will get a tutorial typed next month and add to my tutorials page.

This tag was created with a Spectrum Noir AquaTints background snippet from my background crusading box, the poppies were stamped, coloured and cut out and have been in the other crusading box – the one with images waiting to be used!  I must try and stop creating bits and not using them!  I have huge piles of backgrounds, images, and embellishments I’ve created but not got around to using yet.  So I used items from both of my crusade boxes, as well as a really made by me embellishment and another really old embellishment too!  Yay!!!  So glad to be shrinking these piles a little each day lol!

I have candy that is open world wide to new and old Followers.  I would love it if my current Followers were to add their name too, for the post with the link you need to go here. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this weekend  ttfn Karen x
