Cat Lovers Hop Day 3- Impurrfection Mixed Media Tag

Embrace Impurrfection
It is day 3 of the Cat Lovers Hop over @ Her Peaceful Garden! Hosted by Janis with some amazing sponsors! I am behind but catching up as a cat lover and with my new Tim Holtz Crazy Cats Stamps! I have been waiting for this hop, unfortunately life just gets in the way. 
     Today I am sharing my favorite thing to work on today which is tags!
I used squeezed orange, festive berries and bubble gum pink inks for the background. Stamping with Simon Says intense black archival ink.
     Crazy Cat was colored with an orange watercolor pencil. I drew faux stitches with black marker, added Tim's ideology word band with jute twine. Other embellishments- vintage button, ink stained seam binding, baby's breath, and white and orange netting material.

Countdown To Halloween Day 25-Altered Paint Brush

Sharing an altered paint brush I made for my swap partner in the Vintage Halloween Loaded Envelope Swap, which was to alter an 6 x 9 clasp envelope, create pockets and load them with vintage Halloween goodies (sending mostly handmade items)
I altered the paint brush by spray painting it with black paint and adding squeezed orange ink spray by Dylusions just to the lower bristles.

Adhering a cute Best Witches wood plaque with tacky glue, and embellishing with multi color yarn and ribbons.

Finishing with a little handmade broom created with a Halloween straw, black netting, and jute twine. This was fun and easy project to alter!

Time Out

I lost my little guy JuJu to kidney disease today.
JuJu 10/16/2016
 I brush away the tears... for a sweet little heart of gold stopped beating today.  Four little paws at rest.
Such great memories of you that you leave behind JuJu- I know they will last me throughout the years. 
Love you-

  And I have been worried sick for my little fur girl Meena who got outside on me over 2 weeks ago. And I greatly doubt that I will see her again.


My heart is broke in pieces for these two.
And I need a time out.
   Later then. Tee
