Well, my week off flew by and I am back at work now. Had a lovely time and had a couple of days in London, playing tourist (see some of the photos here)
So, you're either here for WOYWW - Julia's brainchild when we all gather to share our (sometimes strange) places we craft...
On Saturday my brother and I went down to Mum's house to start boxing up some of her belongings, if she stays in the care home she will have to sell the house and there is a lifetime's stuff to move! I brought a few bits home that I can "use" -
Dragons-Dream Tag It On - this week the theme is chosen by Wanda and we're listening to a Dedicated Follower of Fashion The Kinks - here is my fashion tag.
I have used 'my mother's dress' by Inkadinkado - a stamp I love but don't use often - shocking! Painted a piece of white card with sky Paperartsy fresco paint and stamped and cut out the dress. the handbags are Hero Arts. There was a fashion supplement with the weekend paper so cut out some suitable words from the pages and added some fab multicoloured fibres. The coathanger is one of Tim's idea-ology hanger clips
The tag is coloured with antique linen distress ink and sprayed with blue patina perfect pearl spray.
Make sure you check out Frankie's blog for the results of the Bird Cage swap she recently organised to celebrate her blogaversary. I hope the link is right as at the time of writing, it isn't there yet! But check out her blog anyway, it's fab. Here's the one I made - distress stains, Tim stamps/dies and idea-ology.
I hope to get round as many of you as I can, but with being back at work it may have to wait till later.
