Troubled mind.


The Tag Along Challenge this week is 'Faces'. 
The base was coloured with Distress stains, a Tim Holtz product that I have been experimenting with recently. Dabs of stain [Antique linen and broken china] on the craft mat,  then the tag swiped over a few times till I liked the result.
This base  was random stamped,  using Stampers Anonymous images.  The mindful face was fussy cut and stained with the Antique Linen. I added a few swirls, I think this guy needs to focus and clear his head, there's a a lot going on in there.
I will  also  pop to over a  A Vintage Journey .  The current challenge is Stain It.
I was lucky to have been their guest for this theme, I hope they won't mind me sharing this tag.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I do so appreciate the comments you leave for me.
