Wild 'N' Reckless Sherbet....

Now it's time for my
Wild 'N Reckless Sherbet....
 piece for
Kristin's
Week FIVE
I decided to do something completely different this week and make a little mixed media tag...

 I sorted through my crafty stash for some Wild 'N Reckless Sherbet colours...
First I painted the chip board tag with Claudine Hellmuth 'Landscape green'
...then added some lace, fibres, painted shells, beads, gems, sequins , Tim Holtz embellie and a painted clay cab face.
-oOo-
I've really enjoyed this weekly challenge...
...so much lovely inspiration from Kristin's fab ice-cream prompts...
(and so out of my usual neutral colour zones!!)
and been fun blog hopping...So much varied art and lovely talent out there!!
....and Thank you again to all the lovely people visiting me and for your wonderful encouraging comments!
-oOo-
..can't believe that next week is the last week of this challenge :(
and the final icy treat is...
Watermelon Ice
Thanks for peeking!

  2. Jan, I thought I left a message earlier, but apparently I just left your blog on my screen and walked away. This is an impressive tag. When I first saw your tag, I thought you had made an art doll. I like how you dressed your doll, too. Aren't these the best colors? I loved them and can see you did, too.
