Hi you all! Another week has flown by, and it's time for Manon's Paper Saturdays again.
I have made a card, which I have decorated with some quilled flowers. Quilling is really easy to do, and makes pretty, dimensional decorations which you can always make in the colour you need. This is something I often do when I am watching TV, so I have a supply when I need it. You don't need special supplies, I cut left over paper into thin strips to use it. The card is a joy-fold card, and you can find instructions here if you are interested.
At FSC the ladies want to see tags this time. I have made a rather grungy recycling tag. The front tag has been made from craft paper from a cereal carton, and the corrugated card back is from a box, cut to size, partly peeled, and painted with white gesso. I put Utee gold on the right side and melted it, stamping into it with a paisley stamp (maker unknown). The background of the top tag has been distressed using a stencil ans ancient linen and vintage photo DIs. I stamped the chair, birds and nest (stamps from Catherine Moore character constructions) with black archival and clear embossed them. The quote along the edge reads ' The spider, a web - the bird, a nest - man, friendship' and I have forgotten who wrote it, sorry. I found the little feather on my balcony this week. I put an eyelet through both layers after adding some paper and textile strips as matting, and 'sealed' the edges on the left with more Utee to fuse them together. The metal embellishment and chain are from my stash. I am also linking to the recipe challenge at Our Creative Corner, and have chosen fabric, ribbon, metal and inks.
And last but not least, the wonderful sky from yesterday evening. It poured all day, but the sun showed itself sometime after 9 pm, and gave me this wonderful view.
Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
