TIO #123 – Art for Arts’ Sake

This fortnight’s tag at Dragons Dream Tag It On is based on the “recipe” of: A Handmade Background, An Interesting Character and a Quirky Twist.

I had the usual thoughts of OMG etc but came up with this tag:


I had another play with alcohol inks and compressed air – pretty cool fun!  I found a pattern for an art doll on the internet and traced it in my Silhouette Software.  I cut the body parts from 2 different patterned cardstocks and stamped the dress onto a book page.  I love that the limbs move.  I added some cardstock leaves, a punched crown and a ticket for fun.

I hope you like it.
