Hope you have had a good weekend, and that those of you in the States are enjoying your long Memorial weekend. We had another day of sunshine and blue skies here, but tomorrow it will be back to rain, thunder and lightning - variety is the spice of life!
At Moo Mania and more the challenge this fortnight is to use corrugated cardboard, and as most of you know, this is one of my fave materials. The tag has been made from an old box, which has been partly peeled and distressed. I coloured it with distress inks which were embossed with perfect pearls in various metallic colours and then added some of my wonderful gilding flakes. The heart, crown and wings have been cut with a TH die, and fixed with foam squares. I mounted it onto a second tag cut from black card from an old calendar. The medallion was sent to me some time back by Jenny, and I have used a Leonardo image from the vintage visions circle sheet from Gecko Galz. I glazed it with some thick varnish.
The second cardboard piece is a mini book in Moo format. The cardboard has been painted with cream and terracotta, and once again I added gilding flakes, and some fragments of old letters.
I sewed the pages together using a piece of printed linen, which I fixed to the inside covers with DS tape. This was another fun make.
And today I saw lots of red flowers again; poppies, geraniums and roses. The poppies were in the courtyard of Schloss Kalkum, and the other flowers on the 'main street' of our little town. I am linking again to Manus Mikrokosmos, 'red'
Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
