This will be perfect for popping my tags and ATCs in that I receive from blog and Guild friends. I had an audience earlier, she doesn't look too impressed by what I'm doing, or the mess that I'm creating! Don't forget to have a look through your own stash for any forgotten or neglected items and play along with me on a Friday, making something, leave me a comment, and I'll hop over to your blog to take a look.

Forgotten Friday Number 5 and exciting news!
My project for this week's Forgotten Friday post is a little tag box, that I bought ages ago. It was one of those brown flat pack kits that you buy and think, 'oh yes, I'll make that', and it sits for ages, and never gets made. I also had some lovely napkins that I received in a napkin swap last year organised by a lovely lady in the States. I am currently taking part in her altered charm swap. So, I had a look through the napkins, and found a gorgeous egg covered napkin, which I cut up. I covered my tag box first in Gesso, then in Aqua Adirondack paint dabber. Then I added strips of old book pages, and the eggs from my napkin. I also added two little chipboard birds, that have been gathering dust. I coloured these with Vintage Photo Distress Ink,and stamped them with a music stamp. I covered the whole lot with a coat of Claudine Hellmuth Matte medium for durability.
