Happy Thursday!

 Hope you are all having a wonderfully arty week.. I have a tag to share with you again today, I loved creating this one... lots of grungy, painty, glue covered hands from this one.. sigh is there anything better?

The idea for this tag came as a bit of a collaboration between a wonderful friend and I... We both chose two elements that had to be incorporated into the finished piece.. I chose Book pages and sprays/mists, and she chose a quote and crackle paint.. the rest was up to us..

This is what I finished with..

  my base is made from
from collaged book paper, distress and crackle paints... sigh is there anything better!
a few remnant rubs to make a quote.. well sort of.. how about a list of phrases .. giggle

 an image transfer and found relative..

Tag Base: # 8 tag
Embellishments: Book Pages, Tim Holtz: Found Relative, Remnant Rubs
