Hi everybody, it's a chilly morning here, just 10° outside, really more like autumn than anything else! I had a long debate with myself about whether to leave my warm bed or not, but the thought of hot coffee drove me into the kitchen to make it, and now I am sitting here at my desk, enjoying my first mug of wonderful coffee.

I have 2 tags to share with you today, the one I made for tag Tuesday yesterday, where we have reached the letter 'Y', and the other one for the challenge at Artful Times. For 'Y' I chose Yacht, and used a stamp from LaBlanche for the main image. The background has been made with various scraps from my bit box, fussy cut and collaged. The bunting has just been stuck down at the top, so that it seems to be flattering in the breeze - sigh! - wish I was there! 


At Artful Times the challenge is white on white, so I gathered all the white bits and bobs together and threw them on. The tag has been peeled, and then painted with white gesso, to which I added some glitter. Actually it fell into the pot of gesso, but it looks okay so I left it. The TH dress-form has been dolled up with painted cardboard wings,  a piece of a doily and a rose. I added some tissue soaked in gesso - left over from another project I was working on - to give some texture to the background, and pressed the flowers into it.




That's all for today, it's time for my next cup of coffee! Have a good day, take care, and thanks for coming by!

  15. Hope it is warmer now Valerie. We are having a mixed summer as usual and when it is dull it is quite cold here. Today has been sunny again but a cool wind kept creeping in.
    A lovely white tag with such beautiful bits and pieces on it. Gorgeous flowers and I love the heart shaped pearl centres.
    Thanks so much for entering with this beauty to our challenge at Artful Times.
    Hugs, Neet (who loves the other tag too and thinks the bunting is fabulous) xx

  16. I am partial to the white on white - beautiful! What a wonderful idea to leave your flags flapping about but I did get tickled at your "yacht" - honey, that is not a yacht that is a pirate ship!!!!!

  17. Well, good that you mention it, but I think most of the people who have Yachts in this size ARE pirates!
