Artistic Birthday


Today is the 12th birthday of a really lovely young man who has become a terrific friend to both Freya and Tom and a firm favourite guest in our house. I have known him for about 5 years know and he is 'blossoming' into quite a fabulous pre-teen (do boys blossom?! If not you know what I mean!)

This young chap is an artist - he draws more manga style images - but is an artist nonetheless and so I used that as my inspiration. I used a piece of greyboard and cut it as a tag. I then covered it with *** Fresco Finish paints. I used a variety of Studio 490 stamps and Distress Inks on grunge paper to build the image.

Gorgeous tag, love the colour. I wish I could cut my greyboard so neatly - you either have a very sharp knife or a heavy duty cutting blade!
