Tag Tuesday -- Stencils

A bit late this week as my craft room is now looking like a fill in tip for the council. Most of it is packed into boxes, or residing somewhere in the dining room. I did manage to find some texture paste, and used that through one of my most used stencils. I then painted it with gold acrylic paint. What to do then gave me another problem, but I eventually found the images and worked on a wedding theme.
 If I had the will power and the time I would get the next months done in advance, as we move on the 17th of October.

Every Inchie Monday -- Schedule

On Every Inchie Monday, the word is schedule, not an easy one to put it mildly. I did not enjoy this one, especially as I am between craft rooms, and everything is always in the wrong place. Not my best. The sewn one looks like a spider on drugs has walked all over it, It is supposed to be a list of Every Inchie Monday words, which  tick off as I do them. The card one has a shrink plastic ticket on the train time table. It will be interesting to see what the others did for this one.

Artful times DT piece. -- Tiny book

For my DT piece on Artful Times I have made a tiny felt covered book 3" x 2  3/4"  If the Tower of London can put on such a fabulous display to remember the fallen during the First World War, I can try to do my own tiny piece.
I have felted the cover, and embroidered (badly) the words on the back cover. The pages are paper and I have stamped different poppies on each page, plus a few lines of some poems. I have shown just a few of the pages.

Tag Tuesday -- Fairy Tales

For my fairy tale on Tag Tuesday, I have chosen Red Riding Hood. Not happy with it, but it was the best of several attempts. I guess with two thirds of my art stuff in the new house I am struggling a bit. I inked the background through a stencil, then placed the die cut trees on top. red riding hood was printed off the internet.

Every Inchie Monday -- Red

On Every Inchie Monday this week, the word red gives us bags of scope. I have used shrink plastic for two UK icons, the post box and telephone kiosk. For the others I have felted a red poppy, one of my favourite flowers, and painted one as well in a red sunset.

Tag Tuesday -- Silhouettes

On Tag Tuesday this week the word is silhouettes. I have made two, a female and male one. For both tags I inked the background with distress inks and used some stencils on them. I then embossed the frame around them, and inked the high bits with a darker colour. The silhouettes are die cuts.

Every Inchie Monday --Renaissance.

Although this weeks word on Every Inchie Monday gives us a lot of choice, they are not easy to portray on an inch square. The renaissance period was during the 14th-16th centuries, when there was a revival in the arts, and the fashions of that period were very distinctive.
I have gone for good ol' Mona Lisa, and shrank her. I was very surprised how small the painting was, when we went to see it in the Louvre.  The sewing one is a very feeble attempt at Elizabeth the 1st with her ruffled type necklines. Not easy on an inch. I hope these fit the period.
