create art mum tag...


I am following the workshops in the Artistic Mother group and this week I am up to the nametag workshop. I have made one for each of my family to hang up. I have just shown my one as not keen on showing photos of my sons on the net. I have used some watercolour board covered in stamped scrap papers and my new alternative to gesso wall tile adhesive! I distressed the photo slightly so that my hair looks as if it has got highlights. This photo was taken of me last summer knitting bags with cricket stumps and typically needing my messy fringe cut. I have punched the word mum with my new alphabet stamp punches into some dyed-painted lolly sticks and attached this with wire to a piece of bark I found last week at Delamere Forest.

Beautiful tags. Great distressing on the photo, and I love all the layers. And the stamped popsicle stick on bark is brilliant!
