Tag Tuesday -- Texture

On Tag Tuesday it is my turn to host the next two weeks challenge. I have chosen texture, and anything that gives texture can be used.
For my first sample I cut out a tag from corrugated card and used gesso and texture paste to start off with. I then painted it with metallic acrylic paints. Plasterers scrim, ribbons were added, and on the top of these I used accent beads, buttons. friendly plastic and clay embellishments. To add some bling I used glitter texture paste through a stencil.

I have added some photos of our open gardens. We didn't have so many visitors this year, but well worth the effort for charity, the weather was not good for wandering round gardens.
 If I take any more, I'll put them on later.

I love your tag so much I want to see it in person and go through all the things you did - I am so intrigued as the outcome is gorgeous - so too is your garden - well done for doing your garden as well as all your crafting - the plants you passed on to me have given me a wonderful show this year and I don't think my front order has ever looked so pretty and full before - everything is going mad so thank you - but I could never compete with your wonderful garden and your roses and clematis are fabulous x Jenny x
