Every Inchie Monday --Orange

I went for the obvious on Every Inchie Monday. I drew an orange, and did various stitching on the fabric one, adding beads and buttons for texture.

Try it on Tuesday -- Things with Wings

The theme on TIOT is Things with wings, and as I had just made some Deco pages for a swap, I have used one of those. I love the tatty quirky birds, and it looks as if the little one is in trouble with his landing gear. Mum looks a bit worried, and his sister has no idea what is going to land on her head.
I inked the card with distress inks and stamped the birds and leaves directly onto the card. I coloured the birds in with Inktense crayons.




Tag Tuesday -- Summer holiday

On Tag Tuesday Summer holiday is the theme. As a child our Summer holidays were spent on the beach on the Lincolnshire coast. We hired a bungalow, which owned a beach hut, so that is the subject of my tag this week.
I stamped the beach huts, coloured the sky, and then stuck down some sand at the bottom. When that had dried overnight, I then stuck on some shells. I used to love collecting shells. Well still do, but don't tell anyone.

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.
