A whole month…gone…!! It's time once again to share an older post at Bluebeard and Elizabeth's blog - The Altered Booklover.
I have chosen one from May 2014
You can see the original here
I've missed taking part in some challenges of late, we were away of course! That said, even when we were home we were busy with grandchildren, appointments, parties and cinema trips so could only get in my crafty space on a few occasions!
I love the Dragon's Dream Tag It On challenges and until now haven't had time to play along!
The challenge this time for challenge TIO 165 is B and a Flower set by Elizabeth(her son Tom's idea and I loved the inspiration from the design team!)
So here is my tag
The beautiful girl has a broken heart because her beau has b......d off(that's buzzed of course!)so of course she's feeling blue!
I used some packaging for my tag and as I tore it there were some interesting bits still clinging so they were left on. Everything was covered with a watered down gesso. I then inked through a couple of stencils(yes, I did use the new one!) The heart was one left over from the wedding invitations(there's a tale to tell but not this time!)- broken by scissors! The lady is a Lynne Perrella one that had been stamped onto a scrap and then not used and the layers of the flower were also from one of my scrap folders.
The words were on a small scrap leftover from die cutting and just jumped out at me as I was going to reject it(originally from hubby's King Arthur book)The fibres and net are from a box of random bits and pieces that sits at the back of my desk! The buttons(Ooh! another b!)are from my button mug!
I used to love these challenges but sadly there are no more!!This was one of my favourites.
I wanted to find an older May post but once again find that my photos all have a triangle with a question mark on them - if anyone knows how to recover my photos I would love to know how as my blog was originally a way of keeping a record of what I have made!
That's all for now - I look forward to seeing some more second looks today but maybe not till later - an outing with grandchildren this afternoon!!!
Thanks for looking Chris
