Dina Wakley Stencils for Tag Tuesday and Recycling for TIOT

Hi everybody!

It's Double Tuesday again, which means new challenges at Tag Tuesday and at Try it on Tuesday.

At Tag Tuesday our theme is stencils, and I have used the lovely stencil from Dina Wakley again, 'moon faces'. I used a piece of recycled card from an old calendar, and used a small diamond stencil sprayed with blue and brown to make the background layer. Then I added some numerals and alphas with a CWS stencil. The Moon faces were added with Viva Rust and lightly sprinkled with fairy dust. I machine-stitched some fibres for hair, and then sewed the tag with zig-zag stitch to a corrugated card background. I still had the feeling that it needed something, so I cut a little roof out of the same cardboard and stitched it on. The little window face has been made with shrink plastic. I had fun making this one!







For Try it on Tuesday I have used only materials which had been used on other projects. The brown paper bag was punched with my owl punch to make the fancy top. It would also be possible to use a little sandwich bag. The tags and pockets were all on old Halloween projects which I dismantled and re-used  -  make new from old! The black card is from an old calendar. Inside the bag there is plenty of room for scary little presents or treats. This pretty bag was not my idea. Sandy recently sent me one like this, which inspired me to make some of my own for Halloween , and I think it is a really neat design - thanks Sandy!





And last but not least, some photos of the wonderful sky this morning at 7 AM.




Here's wishing you all a great day. 
Take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!

  16. Both of your projects today are very, very clever. The hair for the moon faces is a fantastic effect. Your owl punch really set off the Halloween treat bag too. AND, of course, gorgeous photos of the morning clouds. I woke up to rain but the sun is coming out for a nice day.

  23. Thank you for sharing your heavenly photos with us = so beautiful!
    I was out snapping pix of the clouds today too :-)
    Your super owl treat bag has it all going on = that phrase Eat Drink and Be Scary is such fun and the cut paper trim at the top is super!
    Corrugated cardboard is so versatile and fun to use isn't it.
    You are so busy!
