A Secret Garden in my mind

This tag is a very good representation (a long word for any time of the day, let alone 5.44 am when I am up early and already on medication!) of what is in my mind - a jumble of assorted things, with the occasional bright spark.

I created it for the Tag It On Challenge # 114 - The Secret Garden over at DragonsDream.  I have only just discovered this blog, and this was the last in a series of book title challenges.  Take a look if you are interested to see what is coming next time.  I love making tags, so think I will be a regular visitor from now on.

I got my trusty 3Birds stamp set out (one of those purchases which I use almost daily), and used Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Walnut Stain and Old Paper) - both on the stamps and then with a brush to colour the leaves/tree.  Watercolour pencils were used dry to add a bit of colour and for the wording.  Two coats of spray varnish completed the tag.  A simple creation.
