Texture Paste

What a lovely sunny morning it is here , what a shame Im working 1-10pm today. Never mind at least I get to have a little craft before work. So last night I sat playing with texture paste. I got a tub from the Tuesday craft club I go to, the fab Crafty bunch ( a lovely treasure trove of all things crafty ). So I made 2 large tags one in bright colours, the other in browns. I used Tim holtz stencils, inks and embellishments. Really easy to do. I went for a walk with hubby while the paste was drying and decorated when I got back. I cant believe I have never ever tried it before !!!

Hope you like them , I certainly had lots of fun. Time to dig out the rest of my stencils...
Have a lovely day whatever you are doing. Thanks so much for stopping by my little blog. I read all the comments & I am very grateful to everyone that takes the time to visit.
