Hi everybody. Brrrrrr, its another cold, wet and horrible day here, but good weather for crafting, so I will try to make the most of it!
Yesterday must have been my black and white day. First I made a tag for the *black and white* challenge over at the *Craft Room*. As Halloween is coming nearer and nearer, my theme was predetermined. I stamped a white tag with black diamonds, which I black embossed, and then added 2 strips of Kaisercraft paper with black and white patterns; stripes down one side and flourishes at the bottom. Then I added the white skeleton which I gave some googly eyes and a *dress* made of some beaded stuff cut off a Teeshirt. I gave the skeleton a white handbag made from a little label, bearing the sentiment *Black and white is always an appropriate fashion statement*. I placed the tag on a red cushion and surrounded it with a black and white necklace, which was my mum's, and my skeleton hand necklace. I am also entering this tag into SSSS, which this week is to use stripes.
The pages I made for my journal are also black and white. The main text and cutlery pictures have been transferred from paper napkins, which I discovered under one of the heaps on my table when I cleared up last week. I used mod-podge for the transfers, and just added some quotes about eating and drinking.
The rest of the day I spent reading with my feet up, and drinking plenty of hot drinks to try to get rid of my cold, which seems reluctant to part from me.
I hope you all have a good day, take care, and thanks for dropping in!
