Hi and hello everyone.
Suzanne here with a (for me) long forgotten technique: resist with photo glue.

supplies used 
from plate 148 silhouettes 1  PLATESW148 
petre EI J1442 
words from plate 167 large men PLATESW167 
for the background sof the first TAG:
stamps from plate 54 prophecies PLATECP54 

versamark inkpad TS-VM001
wild honey
peacock feathers
vintage photo
walnut stain
gesso black CH-HSP31383
mini ink blending tool RI-IBT40965
photo glue
various inpads from stazon 
a little snippet of washi tape

First I roughly 'drew' some shapes onto TAGs from watercolour paper, circles on the first one, triangles on the second. When dry I used distress stains wild honey and peacock feathers with water on a craft sheet and wiped the TAGs around. The glue was then rubbed off and the main images added (the petre has been heat embossed and coloured with water soluble wax crayons) as well as the background stamps. Finally I stamped the words, distressed the edges and sponged them.
On the background were also used: a bottle lid with distress ink peacock feathers resp. black gesso applied with an old credit card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you'll have a wonderful week.
Hugs, Suzanne xx

Nice technique, photoglue can be rubbed of quite easily. The white lines give the background colours an even better "spring" feeling.
