Not done this in a while! - D

That is making creating two projects in 1 day and actually posting them lol.  

I hadn't made a tag for quite a while and just fancied it for a change.  I painted the background then once again the brick wall stencil and modelling paste was screaming out at me to use it again lol.  I love this technique as it is so effective as a wall.  So I obliged and made it look like a tunnel.I painted over the top and sprayed Adirondack's over the top.  I used rub over the stones.  I then used another stencil with brown paint to give it the look of the road under the tunnel shape.  I stamped TH man with umbrella and used the sentiment from the same set.  I then added the words, drawer pull and cog by Tim Holtz with a couple of random picture turns and pen nib.  I do hope you like this and please feel free to follow me and come back for another visit.
