Compendium of Curiosities 26

Here is my finished tag, following the technique on page 45 of Tim's bible.  Check out here at L3 to see more.

had great fun trying to think up how to use this technique, dont think I got the actual technique quite right, but it looks OK,me thinks.

Hope you like the new blog name, am trying out "Ink Blots", which cover the dining table now, LOL.  Shall make my own header when I can work out how to do it, so dont hold your breath, LOL.

Hello there, love your beautiful tag, the TH on the edge die is brilliant but your background and colours make it fabulous!
I can't believe this, you and I have chosen the same background and blog header from the hundreds available from Itkupilli, what brilliant taste you have my dear:0)xxx
p.s don't worry I have a bit of a penchant for changing my blog so I may not be the same for long x

Love your 'rusty' tag! And Ink Blots is good too (mine ought to be called Inky Smudges LOL). BTW Cambridge is about 40 miles east(ish) of Timfest so not on the way. We should get together in London (before Ally Pally) and hit Blade Rubber!

gorgeous tag - lovely palette and very interesting depth perspective, not sure what was wrong with the vid earlier - it seems to work now, thanks for the warning tho. sometimes I have to wait a bit with vimeo ones - or click on the vimeo link and watch it from their hosting site.

Hiya, its me... if you email me with your addy I can let you know if a Saturday crops up if you'd be interested as a few have wondered the same. Will need to check with the bookings lady.

Love your colours and mysterious feel of your artwork. The staples really add that perfect finishing touch.

This is lovely, Siobhan, and I think you did a great job with the rusted grunge technique! The background is really pretty, too, and the tiny staples are such a great embellishment!

Your new blog name is GREAT! I love your use of Uppercase and lowercase letters!

That tag is lovely and don't worry if you didn't get it right... it's probably better!
