Tag Tuesday -- Christmas Angels

On Tag Tuesday we are continuing our Christmas theme with Christmas angels. I have made two tags. The pale green one is inked deli paper stuck onto the tag, and the angels cut out with a die cutter. The stars are embellished with silver. A bit of greenery finished it off. The second one I used another tag that I had painted with green and copper. The angels like the other one are from Crafty Individuals. Again I added some greenery and a little gold robin,

Every Inchie Monday -- Yellow

A lovely cheerful easy one this week on Every Inchie Monday. It's yellow, so I just went for the easy option and stuck to the colour yellow for two of mine, and couldn't resist making a sunflower with one of my dies.

Tag Tuesday -- Christmas greenery

On Tag Tuesday we have now started on out Christmas themes. The first one is Christmas greenery. I started with colouring my tag with green and gold paint, added a small strip of music and then cut out my die cuts. These I coloured with distress inks. Made a distressed pine cone, I am not very good at making these, looks more like a brown rose. I finished off with some red swirls and some stickles on the leaves and holly berries.

Every Inchie Monday -- Yo Yo

On Every Inchie Monday the word is Yo Yo. I used to love playing with yo yo's, but trying to draw one was a lot  harder, the sewn one even worse. The sewn one I made with shiny gold fabric ( Must have been a special version) and it looks a bit like a cake. Why did I try to do one at that angle !!!! Why do I make my life difficult ??

Artful Times DT piece -- Wrapping paper

We are asking our ladies on Artful Times to make some wrapping paper. I have made some on brown paper, but it will not scan as I used inks with mica in, and it just comes out as a shiny blur.
So back to the deli paper, which takes inks beautifully, even with mica in. I used various colours of Glimmer mists, and then stamped and embossed some Christmas stars, words and trees. I used silver embossing powder on the green one, and white on the red.

Tag Tuesday -- Let's Dance

Lets dance is the theme on Tag Tuesday, not a subject I am very happy with. I have six left feet, and can't dance a step. I printed off two images and added them to inked and stenciled tags. Added some stamping and some words, and called it a day. I am so behind with Christmas preparations and sorting the new house out, I really shouldn't be doing art work at all. I ended up making two, as I had a tag all ready from another project.

Every Inchie Monday -- Xenon

What a difficult one this was on Every Inchie Monday. Apart from the easy option, I went for this on the card one, I found the sewing one very difficult. It is in case you couldn't think what it was, is a xenon headlight. I was told by my husband that it's a modern one with the row of small lights at the bottom as well as the main headlight. I hasten to add he was not impressed by my attempt and said that he hoped I had told you all what it was SUPPOSED to be. The main headlights coloured foil, but the scanner doesn't show it up
Gosh am I pleased the x's are over with. And will somebody please take the dictionary off Trillian.
