Try it on Tuesday and Tag Tuesday

Hi All

Hope you are all well and keeping warm or cool depending where you are in the world. We have thick frost today and a threat of snow but not much sign of any yet thank goodness.

At Try it on Tuesday there are still 2 days left to make something using your favourite things or favourite methods of crafting. Lots of wonderful ideas, as always, from the talented team 


I made a tag using one of my favourite quotes by Albert Einstein. I love to make backgrounds using chalks and then I made a digital background to print out on the chalked one. The fish are a stencil by Lynell Harlow and it is dated 2007 but I only just got it when my daughter brought me lots of metal stencils. Not sure I know how to use them properly as yet.

I would also like to enter this at Tag Tuesday where the theme is Anything Goes this time and still over a week to enter there. Also a prize draw for one lucky person who enters.

Thanks for dropping by and have a wonderful day

Love Chrissie xx

  6. What a stunning tag, Chrissie. I adore it. I have a couple of those metal stencils, and I found the best way to use them was with some type of paste. I couldn't get them to work unless the image was raised. You seem to have done a marvelous job.
