Every Inchie Monday -- Cockerel

This week cockerel is all set to make us think on ways to get a cockerel on an inch. Once again I have use shrink plastic for the stampbord and a stitched one for the sewn one. I just used loads of straight stitches, and hopefully it looks a bit like a cockerel.

Go Tag Thursday -- Turquoise and brown

One of my favourite colour combinations is turquoise and brown, and this is the theme on Go tag Thursday this week.
I have used a piece of corrugated card for the base of the tag and painted it with brown acrylic paint. I then coloured some texture paste with turquoise paint and used a couple of stencils on the tag and on some brown card. I stamped two Crafty Individuals bird images and added them to the tag. I finished off with a wooden bird some flowers and some bits of broken jewellery

I am also entering this on Try it on Tuesday, where the theme is Get Messy

Thursday Journal with Neet

This week we had to include some fish. The page was painted  already, so it was a bit restricting. I added some die cut seaweed and stamped the fish on separate card. Having already done a few fishy pages, the only thing I could come up with is Lulu going fishing for supper. I wonder what Neet has done. We are now out of our original list of subjects and need to think up some more, I still have a few pages left in this journal.

Go Tag Thursday -- Wheels & cogs

Here is another tag for Go Tag Thursday This time I have used a lot of recycled things. The tag is made from packaging and the bottom piece is the backing from one of Tim Holtz stencils which I have used texture paste on. The two stamped images are from stamps that I have had for ages. The engine and cycle charms I have also had for ever and never liked to use. I am trying to use my stash up now as I have far too much. The cogs are relatively new.

Tag Tuesday -- Spring flowers

The theme for this fortnightly challenge on Tag Tuesday has been chosen by Valerie, and is Spring flowers. I think we all love to see the first sign of Spring and one of my favourites are the snowdrops.
My tag is on watercolour paper with stamped images. I am also very fond of bluebells, so both have featured on my tag. I have added some paper and silk flowers for some dimension.

Every Inchie Monday -- Horse

My stampbord one is shrink plastic and the sewn one is soft leather with hand stitching. The sewn one has some wadding to make it slightly 3D.

Fabric book

I had a super collection of gelli printed fabric residing in a box that I had made last year, so I decided to make them into a book. I went with the theme of trees and leaves again, just can't resist them. Below are a few of the pages, the others haven't scanned very well and are too dark.
