Tag # 31...Feathers

The theme over at Go Tag Thursday this week is Feathers.
So I have made 2 using stamped paper feathers,using a free stamp from an older edition of the craft stamper magazine.
The larger tag,I have used real feathers and boy do they float around, I was almost afraid to breathe over them as they move so easily..twice I found a couple of them on the floor,lol.

If you love making Tags, why not pop over to the challenge blog, would love to see more entries....

Sunday Postcard Art

I am determined this year to enter more challenges..last year I kind of tailed off a bit and became quite lazy and ended up just concentrating on my own blogs.
So to start off 2017 I am returning to Sunday Postcard Art Challenge Blog..I have always loved this blog and have entered their challenges before....worth taking a look as the work that gets entered there is just awesome.
So here we Sunday Postcard, the theme is Tape/Rulers...luckily for me I have a few stamps that fitted the bill.

                           Postcards must measure 4"x 6"
The stamps I have used here are mainly from Oxford Impressions, with other stamps by Inkyliscious and Paperartsy.

Happy New Year & January's Challenge.

Wishing all my friends a Very Happy and Healthy New Year.
Over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit their first challenge for 2017 is now always there is no theme and no paper all mixed media, recylced and altered art is acceptable.
My project this month is a box I altered for a bracelet that I bought for my grandson's girlfriend.
I was unable to buy a box,so rooted through my stash and found one that would be suitable.

 In the base of the box I glued a circle of sponge and covered it all in some black satin material, gluing it in places around the sides with hot glue.

On the lid I added a wide strip of ribbon, securing it with double sided tape and then made a liner from navy blue card

To dress the top I created a flower using lace, a fabric centre, finishing with a bow and pearl gem.
My grandsons girlfriend was delighted with the box as much as she was with the bracelet.
