Tag Tuesday -- Choose 3 B's

I was away all of last week and as soon as I came home I have spent this week working in my garden as we are opening it to the public on the two first weekends in June. Why am I putting myself through this, blowed if I know.  I am worn out and my back aches and crafting has taken back stage.
I have now managed to cobble together my tag this evening, and have made a tag full of tags using the letter b in birds, butterflies blue and brown. There are two bluets on one of the small tags as well.

Every Inchie Monday -- Monkey

This week the word monkey gave me a few headaches, and I had several attempts before I was nearly happy with the results.  The sewn one is a deformed monkey and the stampbord one is shrink plastic.
I was going to put a picture of my two year old grand-daughter 'cos she's a little monkey.

Tag Tuesday -- Go Rural


A very simple one this week, as I am away for the rest of the week. I made this tag with all die cuts, which is not my usual style, but all I can manage in the time.

Creative Carte Blanche challenge -- Think outside the box.

I have just found a challenge called Think out of the box, and this month they ask you to use a cigar box. A friend gave me one ages ago, and I have altered it with an Indian style theme. The top is made with paper, and on the inside, silk paper with an Indian lady made with paper mounted on a skeleton leaf. I lined the box base with red silky fabric and the altered lots of small boxes with paper, charms, metal, and gems. Inside the small boxes I placed more charms, a small hand made book and a few brooch pieces. I scattered some gems on the fabric.

Every Inchie Monday -- Big

I didn't have much of an idea of what to do for this prompt, so for the stampbord one I did an elephant in shrink plastic, well elephants are big. For the sewn one I have made a big Mac. I've never eaten one but They are also big.

Another experiment with Powertex

This time I covered a very plain cream vase with fabric soaked in the Powertex. I pushed some large buttons underneath, and added some lace, beads, and yarn, also soaked in Powertex.  I haven't decided what colour to paint yet, so watch this space.
If it doesn't move in this house it might get covered in the stuff and turned to stone.

Another Dyan style journal page.

I am really enjoying doing this art journal, as I love Dyan's sayings. I used the Delusion paints for the  background, and used various stencils as well. I doodled a bit at the bottom for the girls to stand on.
