I have been busy...

Seems like an age since I posted on here, but this week has been so busy, that I haven't had time to even sit down and create or even find time to post! I do hope you didn't get caught up in the ash cloud. My son had to postpone his trip to New York and Central America, and became a VAV! Volcanic Ash Victim!
These are some of the tags that we created in my Distress ink workshop at Pickleberry, and we had a great time on both occasions! Love teaching my ladies :) Come on gentlemen, come and join our classes!
This is a selection of what I taught, and the front one is the splatter technique where you distress ink your tag and then taking globules (doesn't that conjure up lovely images? ) of water and literally throw them at the ink! Dry with a heat gun to keep the pools of water. The stamp used is from the popular Botanical Plate 1. Don't ask what colour distress inks I used, but probably Cracked Grass and Bundled Page!

 Over on Dan's blog, he has said what we all are thinking , and changed the words of the inks! My DH always changes them, and last night while updating the alcohol ink stock, he went for a walk in the Lake Mist, fell over a pebble, and landed in a pool! lol
Have a greatly Creative Day!
Hugs
