Hello everyone and happy Saturday to you all.
This week has been an extremely busy one for me professionally, and it made me think about the many different roles we play in life and the personas we juggle with on a day to day basis.... Wife, mother, professional, artist or crafter, friend, - we all will have our own list of personas that we display to the world in different situations. Probably one of the reasons so many of us turn to art journaling, because that is a place where we can totally be ourselves. Anyway, enough waffle, just to share some of the thoughts behind this tag which eventually will be integrated into an art journal spread.
I am not a great fan of buttons on the whole, but I wanted to play in the current Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge and buttons kind of fitted my theme. To quote the wonderful Mark Twain:
Biographies are but the clothes and buttons of the man, the biography of the man himself cannot be written. So very true, and in addition, people can press our buttons or we button up etc. etc.
Anyway, I shall stop philosophising and get on to my tag: The background was created with a mixture of paints and Distress Inks. I added some TIm Holtz Tissue Tape, some background stamping and embossing with a couple of different folders.The button at the top I found in my stash and I surrounded it with a couple of Tim's wings, altered with some paints and alcohol inks
