Running around in Circles....

I had one of those week where I didn't get a whole lot done..
The whole week just seem to get away from me..
I started this Tag on Tuesday with good intentions
on having it done at least by Thursday...
 Well here it is Saturday and I am just now getting it done!!
I guess the good thing is that I had a lot of fun making this one!!
It came together pretty easy!

This week over at Tag Tuesday the theme is Circles..
Perfect for the way my week was going..




So I started off with this Face which I just love..  I got the image from
my friend Becca.. 



Once again I don't know where I got this Bird image. I am thinking
Graphic Fairies..  Cause that is where I get most of my images.  But I have
had this one for along time..  So I'm not sure!



I mixed Olive green and vintage white acrylic paint to make the
background tag..  And then I used peeled paint Distress ink for the inside
of the Tag..  Then I decoupage the two together.
For the Top of my Tag I used Chipboard and painted it with
the Olive Green acrylic paint..  Can you believe I have no stitching..



Like I said this one was a lot of fun for me.. I just love pulling out
my paints and inks and getting a little messy!

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I hope you have a great weekend!

Hugs, Linda
