Art is Life - Here's to 2018

Hi Everyone
I hope that you all had a fabulous Christmas and New Year and are looking forward to all that 2018 has on offer. 
Like everyone I am looking forward to another creative year especially to see all the new products coming our way that we will all just need so much. Having said that I have many favourite stamps from days gone by and none more than 'Lonely Girl' by Dina Wakley, which started my Dina Wakley collection off. So I start the year using something old and have had a quick play creating a tag.

Quick background using Dina's paints watered down, Lonely Girl stamp and some from some of Dina's other stamp sets, the hearts I have machined stitched onto the tag.
My art is a big chunk of my life and remains my perfect way to unwind and that won't change for 2018 even though I might take it in new directions.
Here's to an arty filled year to you all
Thanks for stopping by
