Explore....

Today's tag was inspired by .....
the theme of Travel at Art Journey...and Stamplorations - Mixed media challenge
I wanted to make the tag with a friends theme...
their travels, their journey, their exploring and their memories...
I have used distress inks, stencils and stamps on the background.
I have also stamped with white gesso and used clear embossing paste with a stencil.
I have used a white gel pen for hi-lighting
and heated copper frantage, which adds gorgeous texture and dimension.
Thank you for stopping by today, 

I have changed back to Blogger today (from Google+), so that I am no longer a no-reply blogger...
however...... as a result I have lost my google+ followers.......
So I will see what tomorrow brings.....
Need to think about this!
