It's Friday already, and the weekend is
almost upon us. The sun is shining again after a
wonderful dawn sky and sunrise, and I
was able to get out for a walk again -
not as far as usual, but there will hopefully be time
to get back in training when my bones have healed. There
is still ice and snow outside, but I was very careful -
I don't want to make a habit of kissing the ground!
I have been enjoying playing with corrugated cardboard,
craft card and scraps of paper, fabric, feathers
and whatever I find flying around.
For my 12" tag today I used the spine which fell off of
one of my old Muret Sanders Dictionaries. They are from the
beginning of the 20th century, and have a beautiful binding, but the
leather parts are completely porous. Anyway, I decided to make it part of a tag:
The tag was first painted and embossed with Frantage
aged white EP. The doll has been cut from a pattern I have,
and her crown is a castle stamp from Paper Artsy, which I
embossed with gold Utee. I added some burlap, a
sentiment and stitching:
I am linking to Go Tag Thursday, 'ephemera'.
I was honoured to be showcased there this week.
Here is one of the dictionary volumes. Please feel free to copy the images and use them as ephemera:
And last but not least some photos of the
magnificent sky this morning:
And my pride-and-joy amaryllis:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
