You're Unique Like Everyone Else!

Everything is slow in the craft room lately as I'm drugged up to the eyeballs on pain killers and Diazepam, all to relax a spasm in my shoulder. I'm sleeping well though, so that's a bonus :)

I've got the PaperArtsy bug at the minute and I thought I'd make a tag background using their fab Fresco paints. Here I've used Beach Hut, Inky Pool and Smoked Paprika. I did some stamping on the background too, using a TH text stamp with gold Distress Stain, the Stamp Man's frayed fabric stamp, and my unknown circle stamp. 

My main stamp is a Stampotique stamp called Angel Boy, isn't he gorgeous?  I've also used the Stampotique Hanging Heart stamp too across the top of the tag. 
I made up the sentiment and stamped it with my trusty Hampton Art alphabet stamps.


Can you guess what I might be doing with all these Terry Clips?


Well I glued them on the edge of my shelf


And put all my applicator tools on them! Now they are right above my head and VERY easy to use and put back. I need all the time saving I can get!


It's nearly the weekend, hope you've got exciting plans on the go.

Love your Tag Michelle. Angel Boy has to be one of my favourite Stampotique stamps. Your applicator tools look great, what a good idea. I hope you feel better soon. S xxx

Fantastic tag - love the colours, and those fab Stampotique stamps (just love those hearts)...

And wow to your blending tool storage - brilliant idea... wish I had that many blending tools - I still play the peel on peel off game with my velcro. But the day will come...!!

Beautiful colours. I have not used the frsco paints but I have heard about them lately on all sorts of blogs. What makes them different from other paints?
I like the theme of your ATC and that stamp is great!
What a brilliant idea to glue the clips like that.
