Yesterday I had a yearning to play with acrylic paints, so I played with acrylic resist. it’s a long time since I totally lost track of time, but I did yesterday – ooh, it was fun!

I had some thank yous to send, so here are a couple of tags, pre adding ribbons.


I much prefer the above tag, with one pair of birds.  The second one is a bit too busy!


And here’s a card. The background is a bit too strong on this one, so the foreground images don’t pop as they ought to – NOTE TO SELF – Remember next time!


More to come AND I’ve been journalling …. ;-)

oooh good to hear you've been journalling. Now that IS an activity where you can easily lose time. These are gorgeous tags & cards Cath. Glad you had fun making them. It's what it should be all about. Art is certainly my release valve. Craft soothes my more controlled nature, art is my wild, carefree side (even if I still prefer it clean lol). Can't wait to see more of your projects :) Thx for your very sweet comment on my blog a few moments ago. Means a lot coming from the crafter I have always looked up to and admired :) Pxxxx

So happy to hear you got lost in your art. You don't get to do that nearly enough! Your tags are gorgeous...as usual! I'm going to have to research this technique. It looks very cool. You are such an inspiration!!

Oops...sorry if I posted twice...I didn't think the first one went through because I wasn't signed in. :D
