Go Tag Thursday -- Wheels & cogs

Here is another tag for Go Tag Thursday This time I have used a lot of recycled things. The tag is made from packaging and the bottom piece is the backing from one of Tim Holtz stencils which I have used texture paste on. The two stamped images are from stamps that I have had for ages. The engine and cycle charms I have also had for ever and never liked to use. I am trying to use my stash up now as I have far too much. The cogs are relatively new.

I am also entering this on

Tag Tuesday -- Spring flowers

The theme for this fortnightly challenge on Tag Tuesday has been chosen by Valerie, and is Spring flowers. I think we all love to see the first sign of Spring and one of my favourites are the snowdrops.
My tag is on watercolour paper with stamped images. I am also very fond of bluebells, so both have featured on my tag. I have added some paper and silk flowers for some dimension.

Every Inchie Monday -- Horse

My stampbord one is shrink plastic and the sewn one is soft leather with hand stitching. The sewn one has some wadding to make it slightly 3D.

Fabric book

I had a super collection of gelli printed fabric residing in a box that I had made last year, so I decided to make them into a book. I went with the theme of trees and leaves again, just can't resist them. Below are a few of the pages, the others haven't scanned very well and are too dark.

Go Tag Thursday -- Wheels/cogs

The new theme on Go Tag Thursday is wheels and cogs, sort of steampunk and time rolled into one.
I distress inked the background and stamped the steam engine. I added a cog die cut or two and some metal ones.

Thursday Journal with Neet

This week we had to include a heart. I went back to the sixties and The Beatles. The page was already inked, so I stamped a lot of Dyan's ladies and they became the Fan Club. Neet has also used a song for her page as well

Fabric postcard

This is another fabric postcard for the swap I am doing with my friend. The subject this time was hearts. The background was made with lots of bits of fabric and thread and overlaid with organza. I then did some machine embroidery on top and then added the hand made felt hearts and the twinchie.
