Tuesday tags on Tag Tuesday

Hi everybody, here's wishing you all a happy May 1st. The sun is shining here, so looks like it will be a nice day! I am happy to say that I have my tags for Tag Tuesday ready already! The theme this week is sewing, which is not really my thing, as I can't see enough to thread the needle, but I have managed a few large stitches, with which I tacked the sack-cloth and book-paper to the tag. The tag itself was made from some packaging, which I stamped with a random-crackle stamp in forest moss and vintage photo. Then I added a TH dress form, which I clothed with a leaf, cut from a scrap of ribbon, and 2 buttons. I have put a mini-thimble where the head should be. The sewing machine and scissors are freebies from Free Vintage stamps, which have been fussy cut and decoupaged. I placed another ribbon scrap 'under the needle' of the machine. A bow made of stitched ribbon completes the tag.


The second tag has been made from a collage from the same vintage blog, and I added the queen's head. I decoupaged some accessories, and added MOP buttons. I did some false stitching round the tag using my pokey tool and a black pen.



The photos of the flowering rape-seed fields were taken yesterday in a lane near here. They not only looked gorgeous, but the whole area was filled with their wonderfully sweet perfume.



Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks for visiting!
