I enjoyed watching the day grow light and a beautiful
sunrise again this morning, but there was a thick
frost on the fields, and there's definitely
a nip on the air. But the buds are growing bigger
and the birds are singing loud and happy,
so I hope that means that spring is on its way!
Today I made a simple tag for the transport
theme at Simon Monday Challenge. I wanted to use the die-cut
balloon and cogs that dear Gill sent me in her wonderful
parcel. But I also wanted to make a balloon out of material,
so I sewed some little squares together, (thanks Chrissie) and
cut them into a circle form to fit over the die cut.
I sewed 3/4 of the way round, and then
pushed some padding into it to make it round. The
background is a 10" craft tag, which got a quick coat
of cream coloured pain from Pentart, before being
collaged with stencils, a gift from Sandy. I left the
edges rough so that you can see the crafty BG.
The wonderful quote is from Leonardo,
and the threads for the tassel were pulled from a piece
of linen when I was fringing it. I sewed the whole thing onto
some recycled black card from an old calendar.
I am also linking to More Mixed Media, anything goes.
Last night the clouds were rose and gold from the reflected sun:
Sunrise was beautiful:
Jack Frost had walked over the fields:
The buds are growing:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
