Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

WOW!!!

Last month Jennie posted a technique on  Gingersnaps Creations - and she used VivaGold straight onto the the paper. Until then I had only used it on metal/utee etc - never thought of using it direct to paper. Its glorious!! The photo doesn't do it justice, but it gives a lovely sheen. I then over stamped with the stars background and embossed it.
You may recognise the bauble - sorry to tell you that no Jennie hasn't designed a new one with stars on it, its the steampunk one, but I didn't want the cogs on this tag, so I stamped it, cut it out and then triple embossed it using the same stamp I used on the background. I then stamped the holly stamp onto shrink plastic and shrunk it - bit of wire wrapped around a paintbrush handle and hey presto

Now what is our treat today?? - You decide and tell me! (my treat today is not thinking too hard)
