Hello friends
Hope you are all good!

Today I wanted to share with you a grungy make....
This has been one of those projects that I had to step away from as I could of kept adding to it!
these tags are great, they come in various sizes and are perfect for  adding lots of embellishments to!
To start I coated the tag with a coat of gesso, I then added some fresco paint layers (Paperartsy) in green patina, smoked paprika, french roast and captain peacock.... these are my new favourites!
I stamped onto the tag using my Tim Holtz stamp platform (wow... this is a must have tool!) I stamped using Tim's foam stamps, when it was dry I sanded the numbers back to get a more worn look.
I then started to add lots of my vintage finds..... the orange ruler was 20p from a car boot, I cut it up to create a frame.  Around it I added lots of clock parts, Idea-ology and a vintage key from my stash 
As I am a self confessed hoarder of stuff and I was looking for something to add to the middle....the radiator key was a perfect addition ( who needs a radiator key) I also added a square cut from one of Seth Apter dies and coloured it with rust paste.
To finish I added the bolts to the side, also given the rust treatment!
I'm the first to admit that I'm not very good at using always scares me but I have to admit I really enjoyed having a dabble...

As always feel free to leave a comment, I appreciate each and every one!

Have a great week!
