Fabric tag book

This fabric tag is for a swap where we will get one tag from everyone, and then be able to bind the book the way we want. The subject was Nature, which gives you bags of scope, but which sent me off with the birds again. The oak leaves at the top I used acrylic paint through a mask, and added a few vilene oak leaves. The bird was cut out of fabric, and bondawebbed bto the base fabric. The branch is machine embroidery. The bottom is a combintion of a very tatty pieces of a scarf, machined down with free embroidery on the machine.

The back of the tag consists of stamped images of ferns as a background, and then bird images stamped on muslin.
