Tag Tuesday -- Three

Thank you all for visiting my blog this year. have a wonderful 2015.
On Tag Tuesday the word is three, so I have chosen to do three wise owls. I inked the background, and then used a brass stencil and sprayed over it to get a dark background to the trees. I painted some owls and then coloured them with distress pens, and added some leaves and grass to finish off the bottom of the tag.

Every Inchie Monday -- Magical

On Every Inchie Monday, our last inch of the year is 'magical. For the card one, I have stamped and shrunk a fairy perched on some flowers, and added an extra, so that my whole display is symmetrical. The second one is a picture of three very tiny fairies. For my sewn one I have sewn a unicorn's head out of soft leather added a main and sewn the horn down with silver thread,

Tag Tuesday -- A very vintage Christmas

A very quick tag today, as I should be making mince pies and cheese biscuits. I would of course rather make a tag. The background is inked acetate , and the images are from Somerset Studio, Tim Holtz and my stash.

Every Inchie Monday -- Zig Zag

Two very quick inchies today for Every Inchie Monday, as I have had a rotten cold, and am way behind with Christmas arrangements. Will have to go shopping today to get the rest of the presents.
My sewn inchie was done on the machine, and the stamped one inked in colour and embossed with a clear powder,

Tag Tuesday -- Christmas Angels

On Tag Tuesday we are continuing our Christmas theme with Christmas angels. I have made two tags. The pale green one is inked deli paper stuck onto the tag, and the angels cut out with a die cutter. The stars are embellished with silver. A bit of greenery finished it off. The second one I used another tag that I had painted with green and copper. The angels like the other one are from Crafty Individuals. Again I added some greenery and a little gold robin,

Every Inchie Monday -- Yellow

A lovely cheerful easy one this week on Every Inchie Monday. It's yellow, so I just went for the easy option and stuck to the colour yellow for two of mine, and couldn't resist making a sunflower with one of my dies.

Tag Tuesday -- Christmas greenery

On Tag Tuesday we have now started on out Christmas themes. The first one is Christmas greenery. I started with colouring my tag with green and gold paint, added a small strip of music and then cut out my die cuts. These I coloured with distress inks. Made a distressed pine cone, I am not very good at making these, looks more like a brown rose. I finished off with some red swirls and some stickles on the leaves and holly berries.

Every Inchie Monday -- Yo Yo

On Every Inchie Monday the word is Yo Yo. I used to love playing with yo yo's, but trying to draw one was a lot  harder, the sewn one even worse. The sewn one I made with shiny gold fabric ( Must have been a special version) and it looks a bit like a cake. Why did I try to do one at that angle !!!! Why do I make my life difficult ??

Artful Times DT piece -- Wrapping paper

We are asking our ladies on Artful Times to make some wrapping paper. I have made some on brown paper, but it will not scan as I used inks with mica in, and it just comes out as a shiny blur.
So back to the deli paper, which takes inks beautifully, even with mica in. I used various colours of Glimmer mists, and then stamped and embossed some Christmas stars, words and trees. I used silver embossing powder on the green one, and white on the red.

Tag Tuesday -- Let's Dance

Lets dance is the theme on Tag Tuesday, not a subject I am very happy with. I have six left feet, and can't dance a step. I printed off two images and added them to inked and stenciled tags. Added some stamping and some words, and called it a day. I am so behind with Christmas preparations and sorting the new house out, I really shouldn't be doing art work at all. I ended up making two, as I had a tag all ready from another project.

Every Inchie Monday -- Xenon

What a difficult one this was on Every Inchie Monday. Apart from the easy option, I went for this on the card one, I found the sewing one very difficult. It is in case you couldn't think what it was, is a xenon headlight. I was told by my husband that it's a modern one with the row of small lights at the bottom as well as the main headlight. I hasten to add he was not impressed by my attempt and said that he hoped I had told you all what it was SUPPOSED to be. The main headlights coloured foil, but the scanner doesn't show it up
Gosh am I pleased the x's are over with. And will somebody please take the dictionary off Trillian.
