Love and Laugh

My hubby has started to call me Stig. I am just about collecting everything. Brought these padlocks from a car boot, they must have been in a garden shed for years, full of dirt, sand and spiders. Just wanted them. Well, gonna enter this into the Artistic Stamper challenge for May .words.

Painted the padlock, complete with its rusty key,with cream and gold acrylic paints. Added some flower wire round the key, then added random Tim Holtz Tattered Florals cut out in print paper, inked with Distress Ink Vintage Photo. Made the dragon fly from another set of stamps, coloured and glossed. The words scattered with the flowers are from Indigo Blu stamp set Live.Laugh.Love.
Wanted the whole thing to feel as if they were all blowing in the wind,they move quite freely.
