Roses at Tag Tuesday

Hi everybody!

Another week has flown by, and it's once again time for a new theme at Tag Tuesday. I used corrugated card again as a base. The card was partly peeled, painted with white gesso and then given a sprinkling of glitter. If I may give you some good advice, please try NOT to sneeze while sprinkling glitter, although the kitchen floor looks beautifully sparkly just now.
The image I have used is one of Astrid's wonderful freebies, which she very generously offers on her blog. I distressed the edges with vintage photo DI, and added some bobble trim, white burlap and some roses and flowers. This was a quick and easy tag. I am also linking to Moo Mania and More, corrugated cardboard.

I just love all the front gardens along the road at the moment, and am always most impressed how much time and effort people put into them to make them so beautiful.

And the hedgerows along the fields and the Rhine are lovely too, full of wild flowers and grasses.

I have captured some of the wild-flowers in this collage.
I am linking to MiFoc, colourful.

That's all for today!
Have a good one, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
