Ok we have had two nice days, but it's a start! As the weather has been a little better, I decided to do a spring themed tag.
I started by covering a tag in resist paper, spraying it with Lindy's spray in blue then inking it over with distress ink. I then used the crackle stamp and some blue embossing powder, to create something more in the background. I had already die cut some paper using a honeycomb die (for the second tag which is below) so I coloured it with blue pen. I sprayed some paper with Lindy's sprays and die cut wildflowers, as well as the word spring using the edge of the sprayed paper, so that only a few drops were on it. Finally I used a metal bird and a little bow.
My second tag came about because I tried to cut the honeycomb die with grungeboard, which did not work. It did leave a nice embossed feel though, so I decided to use it to do a second tag.
After cutting the grungeboard I die cut the honeycomb die again, using the inner shapes to glue onto the card, which I had painted with Sparks paint in Fairy Wings. I used various sprays on the background, as well as a filigree corner. I had a Snip Art frame that I sprayed and used wax on. I added a paperdoll and a snarky saying on there, as well as some resin flowers that I coloured with alcohol ink and added pearls to. Finally I used some brown lace to tie a bow at the top.
I also tried making a bracelet. It's not bad, but I could have done with tightening it a little more, but it is a learning process. The fact I actually managed to follow a pattern, albeit it a simple one, is progress. Next I want to try the St Petersburg stitch.
Speaking of stitching, here is the progress on the photo stitch.
It's been a productive week. The extra hours of light are really helping with this, as well as giving me time to work on my other crafts. I'm not sure what I am going to do next though.
