Arting up a Storm!

Thank you, Effy Wild for your invitation to participate in Art Bundles for Good!

This MDS (multiple day spread) was done all in one sitting, so the tags represent different areas where connection is imperative for me. I affixed the tags with staples. Loving the simplicity of that instead of more medium. I ran out to buy an inexpensive handheld sewing machine after completing the piece so that I can play with other means of attaching tags and other ephemera.

Hope you are having as much fun as I am this Holiday season and that you ring in the New Year safely.  Much love to all who visit.
