Time flies by so quickly - I have the feeling that I just
finished writing my last blog, and here I am
already writing the next one.
We got a
shitload of snow dropped on
us in the night, although 2 days back they promised
that today would be warm and springlike - anyhow, the
experts are predicting the change now at the
beginning of the new week, so let's hope
they soon get things right!
I made this pair of 10"tags yesterday, using various bits and bobs from
messy table and also a few more things that were in
the wonderful goodie-box from Gill.
I made a really messy background, recycling the rest of
the cardboard from my knee-socks - for 1 pair of socks I got 3 pieces
of cardboard, 2 plastic clips and a plastic bag, which is resealable. I used lots of gesso, brushos, sprays, EPs, fibres and bits and bobs which I pasted on:
The face is made using a stencil from Dina Wakley,
the bird, cage, flowers and diaphanous
white material for the dress from Gill - thanks Sweetie!
The words were stamped with a cheap set of sentiments,
No-Name from the 1€ shop for 20 stamps.
I did lots of sewing to put it together.
I am linking to Stamps and stencils, texture, crackle
and paint, and to Simon Monday Challenge, young at heart; and to More Mixed Media, anything goes, optional red; and to
Allsorts Challenge, hearts and/or flowers.
And as the colours fit so well for Linda's lovely challenge
'50 shades of red' at AJJ, I placed them in my journal
and made them into a journal spread.
And you might not believe this, but I cleared up my table -
well, a bit anyway:
I enjoyed sitting at my table crafting and enjoying the
aroma of a marble cake baking in the oven - yummy!
I stayed home today as I don't want to fall over again
and kiss the ground, I just took the pics from my
My cactus is covered in snow:
I threw out a few hand-fulls of bird food, they found it:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
