Hi you all!
Today is challenge Tuesday for me, as this week both the Tuesday blogs are due.
At Tag Tuesday our theme is the Swinging Sixties. I made a tag using images from Gecko Galz. I loved the warm colours from the sixties, and all the things we were hoping for - peace, love and harmony. It was a decade that marked my transition from school to studying to starting a family and my first job as a teacher.
The challenge at TIOT is to use three different, fancy edges. I am not really a fan of fancy edges, so decided to get them all onto one piece of paper . I used X-Cut punches to do the flowers and butterflies on the left and right sides, and a Marth Stewart punch to do the lace edge at the top. I mounted it onto some partly peeled and white-painted corrugated cardboard. I punched some more flowers for the centre, and used buttons as embellishments, string for the stems and some cut-out leaves. The paper is from Kaisercraft, it has 2 different sides, which I was able to use well here. I tied it all up with some string and added 2 of my home made paper beads. I will use this as a page for my calendar.
That's all for today. Have a good day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
