Go Tag Thursday -- Steampunk

I have just come across a newish tag challenge site called Go Tag Thursday and this time it is steampunk. I don't need much of an excuse to do tags, time or steampunk so made two while I was at it. The second one I will put on in another post later on.
This one has a cog embossed background with stamped images added on separate card. I used crackle glaze on the clock face, finished it off with some metal cogs.

I'll never be a well behaved woman -- Journal page. Words, words and more words.

Here is the next journal page for my challenge with Neet. This time we had to put lots of words on our page. My words sort of indicate that being well behave could be a bit boring.

The Craft Barn Dictionary challenge -- N

I have found a spare dictionary, so couldn't resist the temptation to do another N page for The Craft Barn Dictionary Challenge. This time I have chosen Nest. I stamped the images and coloured them with intense crayons, the feather is a die cut. The pages are very thin, so it will need some careful handling, I might have to glue several together.

Tag Tuesday -- Cups and cutlery

Not a lot to find in my stash on this subject this week. Luckily I had a napkin with cutlery on and a die cut of a cup and spoon. As that was the sum total, I used all of them to make the tag. I covered the cups with a 3D glaze to make them shiny and cut the spoon out of some metal tape on grunge board.

Every Inchie Monday -- Spiral

Now was this an easy one, or have I not thought it out enough !!!! The sewn one is on a background of hand felting and the stampbord one has three different spirals made from shrink plastic, including a snail that although it eats your plants has a lovely spiral shell.

The Craft Barn Dictionary Challenge -- N

This time on The Craft Barn Dictionary Challenge, there aren't many words beginning with N that I wanted to do. In the end I went for the bird Nuthatch. We used to get them feeding on the peanuts when we lived in Wales, but haven't seen any here yet. They generally feed upside down and are one of the only birds in the UK that do that.
I have kept the tag very simple and drew the tree with a black pen for the nuthatch to find some insects on.
I gave the tree very little colour, so that the bird showed up clearly. It did feel strange not to use distress inks or paint, but I like the simplicity of it.

Journal page challenge with Neet

My friend Neet and I decided we needed to challenge ourselves and do more in the journal we started  last year. It's a large size which neither of us are very happy with. The small ones are so much easier to work in and come up with ideas for.
We have made a list of subjects to work from, and will go through them in order each week. Well until we run out of pages that is. Then we might do the same with the smaller ones.
This week was to include some stars, so having set off putting stars in a dark blue sky, I was then stuck. So it's not quite night time, the rest I'll leave for your imagination. No doubt a certain cat has been put out for the night and is creeping away.
