Good morning you all. We had a stormy night here, with thunder and lightning and loads of rain - hope the farmers will now be happy -and even the birds seem to be tired this morning!
I had a crafty day here yesterday, couldn't seem to stop, but can't show you everything as some things have to stay hidden for a few days for one reason or other. But I can show you some tags, so here they are!
The first 2 have been made just for fun.
Both tags have been made from recycled manila paper, and distressed with TH inks in stormy skies, Victorian velvet and forest moss. The backgrounds have been stamped with script and flourishes in green. Then I added some floral rub-ons, vintage scrap images and some little embellishments.
The next tag has been made for the challenge at *Blog Challenge Garden*, where the theme this week is *make it masculine* in honour of Fathers' Day in the USA. I have made a cardboard tag, as I cut up another empty box yesterday and made 15 large tags from it, which I *peeled* while watching Horatio Cane triumphing over the criminals of Miami....
The tag has been painted with white gesso, which I heat dried to speed it up. It smelled like burnt toast, but it bubbled nicely. I am now wondering what they put in the toast - cardboard and gesso? But I digress again. It has been distressed with Th inks in faded jeans, wild honey and forest green. The image used is from Crafty Individuals, the mini tag has been stamped with an artemio stamp, cut out by hand and distressed before being given the message. Then I added the masculine decorations, and that was it, quick and simple, but fun! I am also entering this into the Gingersnaps GC 106 *Use packaging materials*
And I can give you a sneak peek at the little album I finished yesterday, don't want to show it all as it would spoil the surprise for my swap partner.It's a small album with a travel / Paris theme.
Okay, that was it for today. The parcel post just came and brought me something, so I'm off to open it....Thanks for visiting, take care, and have a great day.
