Tag Swap

This tag on our forum swap is for my mate Pen. Her chosen theme is "the sea." I've tried to produce a style which I hope she'll like. If you wondering how I created the teature for the sea - it's a dish cloth! I've also used Golden glass bead gel and some bedazzles as well as a mixture of Stewart Gill Byzantium paints. A great chance to dig out some items I haven't played with for ages!

I enlarged the image and wow! Those bedazzles are perfect for this tag! Brilliant.
Having used the dishcloth you just have to find a way of incorporating the iron and the hoover and you wont be able do do any housework at all!;0)

Who knew a dish cloth could be used as part of a crafting creation!! It is so effective, it's genius. Love the Bedazzles too, like you I haven't used mine in a very long time, and yet they're so beautiful.
Perfect crafting ingredients for a perfect piece of work,
Love Sarita xx
