Tuesday Taggers

I had forgotten how much fun it is joining the Tuesday Taggers weekly challenges! I am slowly grabbing some time for myself! & I had so much fun last week I was determined to play again this week.

Thank You also to everyone who took the time to visit & leave me a comment. :) xx

This week the Tuesday Taggers Design Team want us to get messy! Told you it was too good to miss!!
Here are my messy hands!

I picked up a little notepad block weeks ago & had every intention to alter it but with daily hospital visits to see my dad it got left & forgotten about until now.....

I covered the outer case with a layer of Gesso & dry brushed purple acrylic paint on top. I added a little paper border around the edge. The picture on top of the little box has a Distress Ink background & a gorgeous little image from Funky Kits coloured with Copic Pens.

I think my little altered notepad has turned out really nice. Thank You Tuesday Taggers for the inspiration.xxx (& I should say kick up the.....) hehe. :)

The Design Team have some lovely messy hands & creations to share with you & also a lovely Sponsor for this week The Craft Barn offering the winner a fabulous £15 gift voucher. So what are you waiting for!!

Thanks for looking. Have a great weekend & try & get messy if you can. :) Love Gez.xx
