Some work in progress ...

My first post of 2012! When does it become too late to say Happy New Year, I'm never quite sure?! I'll wish it to you anyway!

Here's what I've been working on lately ... basically, lots and lots of luggage tags!
Some of these have been stained with my new acrylic inks (a Christmas pressie!) I love the depth of the colours, especially this blue. Not quite sure what I'm going to do with these yet...
I've also been making some lovely grungy/aged/collaged tags, for a new canvas I'm working on at the moment ... with butterflies, envelopes, little bits of scrap fabric and ephemera...
... and my favourite, this little spoon ... I've been dying to use it!
I'm hoping to finish this canvas this week so I can submit it to the Waterside Open Exhibition. Wish me luck!


  1. Happy New year lovely!! Your new work is gorgeous- I love that blue:)

  2. Happy New Year Angie!! hahaha!! and i thought i was the late one ... you're even later ;)WIP looking real good ... i always love the way you stain you backgrounds :)

  3. Ooh... mine, mine, mine! LOL! I love to see the little goodies that go into your work and of course these are in my favorite colors♥

  4. Those ink colors are amazing! I love the teeny tiny envelope, and the spoon is awesome! Well, I just love all of your tags.

    I would say you can wish a happy new year at least all thru January LOL!

  5. Wishing you luck on the exhibit! My heart flutters every time I see one of your grungy tags with the little envelopes. I just love them!!! You should list some in your shop so I can buy myself one. :)
    Hugs to you sweet friend!

  6. Never too late - Happy New Year to you too :-) Working on tags is great fun and this collection of yours is beautiful and creative. It struck me that both this post and the last could be an entry into Hettienne's 'Butterfly' challenge this week :-)
