Forgotten Friday 33- Project Completed!

Hi Folks, it's Friday again, and time to rummage through your forgotten stash once again. See if you can make something with your neglected craft items.

This week I have managed to finish my tag canvas started last year at the Graphicus Retreat. I have thoroughly enjoyed this project, using old, neglected stamps, and colours of Distress Inks that I wouldn't look twice at normally. I have revisited techniques on these tags that I want to use again in my crafting, so it has been a really worthwhile experience. This week, yesterday in fact, I made the last five tags, and then stuck all of them onto the canvas. I went a little 'off piste' regarding some of the stamps right at the end, because I wanted to incorporate a couple of slightly newer ones. The stamps used are probably all still available at Chocolate Baroque  I also added a couple of my own embellishments, and repeated the gel resist technique, because I like that so much.

I hope you like the finished result!

Now, this particular canvas needs a home, as I am running out of display space. If someone would like it, please let me know. If I get more than one person requesting the canvas, then I'll put everyone's names into a hat, and draw one out. I'll check back, and let you know on Monday, as I'm going away to Ally Pally over the weekend. Look out for me if you are going!

If you feel like making something yourself with something that has been forgotten or neglected, please leave a comment, and I'll pop along to your blog to take a look. Thanks for stopping by today, xx

This is absolutely fabulous and who wouldn't like to own it. I'm quite sure you will have lots of names to put into your hat and I'd like my name included please.
Have a great time at Ally Pally and look forward to seeing what you make with your purchases (I'm sure you might buy one or two items at least).
Looking through my stash for something neglected to use this week.

Great project Judith, some lovely stamps in there and gorgeous colours. It doesn't seem fair to put my name in as I have quite a few examples of your lovely work already, not least my latest birthday card which I adore. Elaine x

Like Elaine, I will let others have a chance to own this gorgeous piece of work (even though I'd love it too). I too have treasured pieces from you and we have our Pay it Forward swap to do yet so I mustn't be greedy.

Enjoy your weekend my friend. I'll be thinking of you all.

Hi Judith,
This is gorgeous and would look great in my home! It would cheer me no end since I'm a bit blue as my daughter has just left home to go to uni.
