Tag Tuesday -- Insects

For this week on Tag Tuesday I have a dragonfly and butterfly theme going on. The one with the large dragonfly has been stamped on acetate and then some bright shiny turquoise paper stuck underneath.This has not shown up on the scan.  I used a stamped dragonfly strip and cut it up to fit the tag.
Both tags have a grass die cut at the bottom and a stamped border behind it. The other tag has a distress ink background and a honeycomb stenciled on top of that. The dragonflies are stamped and the butterflies from my stash. I also found a ladybird brad.

Every Inchie Monday Gecko

Gecko is the word for this week on Evey Inchie Monday. For the stampbord one I have used shrink plastic with a painted background. For the sewn one I have used French knots to make the gecko's scales. He looks a bit cross

Artful Times DT piece -- Tatttered and torn

For my DT piece , tattered and torn on Artful Times I have made another page for my vintage sewing book. I started out with corrugated card distressed it by tearing off some of the top layer. I painted it with Fresco paints and added some torn paper, I embossed some of the distressed bits with copper. Some vintage pictures were added and then I dressed the dress form with some organza and lace. I made a button to match the dress form and added some ribbon, tape, and wooden embellishments.

Tag Tuesday -- Signs of the zodiac

A very quick tag for the signs of the zodiac on Tag Tuesday this week. I am away this week, and had to use the internet for the images. The background is distress ink with some stamping, and the images adhered  on top. I added a Taurus charm and a couple of sayings, the bottom one applies to me. Yes I am a Taurean.

Every Inchie Monday -- Knitting

I had completely forgotten it was Monday, as I was out pulling up weeds in the garden, We have had glorious sunshine for two days and my back is now aching from too much bending.
For my knitted inchie I knitted some embroidery thread on very fine needles, and for the stampbord one, I drew some stocking stitch knitting.

tag Tuesday -- Easter bonnet

Easter bonnet is the theme on Tag Tuesday this week. Not my favourite theme I have to admit. I searched through my images and came up with the three hat advertisements and the vintage lady with her flowery hat. As I couldn't make up my mind which ones to use I made two. Both tags started off with distress inks and the pink one I sprayed with purple through a stencil. I added old book paper to one and stamped the other with a script stamp. The images were then added, plus some flowers and butterflies.

Every Inchie Monday -- Oak

For Every Inchie Monday this week oak is the word. A nice easy one that didn't make my brain work overtime. On the alcohol inked stampbord I used shrink plastic for the oak leaf and acorn. For the sewn one I used embroidery thread on felt.
