Every Inchie Monday -- Odd

Odd is the word on Every Inchie Monday this week, and I'm sure most of us will have gone for odd numbers. I did with my sewn one, with its odd numbers of beads buttons and sequins, as well as the actual numbers on the fabric. For the drawn one I went for odd man out.

Artful Times DT piece -- Tags

On Artful Times the theme is tags, any size, shape or subject. I have this  thing about corrugated card at the moment, I am sorting out my workroom, ready for a move, and keep coming across little stashes of it. I am cutting them up into tag size pieces, and throwing the rest away.
One of the tags has another tag on top of it, the sewing one I worked directly onto the corrugated card, having distressed it first. Both of them I embossed, and stamped with a script stamp, bfore plcing the image, and ephemera on.

Tag Tuesday -- Bugs

On Tag Tuesday it's bugs, so I went with bees, as I seem to have acquired quite a lot of bee related stuff. I inked the background with distress inks, and added an embossed honeycomb at the side. I stamped a ticket and small tag and placed them near the honeycomb.  The bees on the honeycomb are friendly plastic, and the others stamped. The wings on all of them have some yellow stickles added to make them shimmer. I added the three charms at the bottom, and  some bee ribbon to finish it off.

Every Inchie Monday -- Navy

On Every Inchie Monday the theme this week is navy. I had to take mine away with me, and had very little to work with. I might re-do the drawn one, as it's a bit blurred. WHY don't white pens work properly, I just can't find a decent one.

Tag Tuesday -- Japan

Japan is the word for this week on Tag Tuesday, and I would have loved to have done a fabric one, as I have quite a bit of Oriental fabrics, BUT time ran out, so a simple one in Japanese papers and a stamp from Crafty Individuals had to suffice. I added a metal fan, and coin to finish it off.

Every Inchie Monday -- Negative

On Every Inchie Monday, the subjects are getting quite difficult to do in sewing, so for this one I just did a simple negative film strip for both of them. Some of the other ladies have been far more inventive.

Artful Times -- Postcard from abroad

For my postcards for Artful Times I have chosen Paris and India, both of which I have been lucky enough to visit.
The background for the Indian one is from and old Indian book, coloured with fabric paint. ( Left overs from a fabric printing course, where the paper was used to clean the brayer) The images were  stamped on various papers. The Taj Mahal was stamped on paper dyed with tea.
The Paris one was on a piece of Tim's papers, coloured with distress inks, and then stamped with the various images. The image of the Eifel Towers was stamped on a separate piece of card.
