Edgar Tag....

Time again for another challenge at Tag Tuesday..a great theme too, chosen by Michele.
I have to admit, Edgar Allen Poe has never been a subject that I have created I was stumped for a while....then I remembered I had bought a second hand rubber stamp some time ago..Goth the Raven..perfect for the tag.
As for Edgar, I had to download a clipart image....I hope I have managed to cover Michele's theme....

I hope you can find time to pop over and join in with our can find us here at

Bunting or Flags, the choice is yours...

Hi's Tuesday..and that means a new challenge for the next fortnight over at Tag Tuesday and guess who is hosting..Me!
I have chosen Bunting or Flags for my theme...I am hoping all you crafters out there will come along and join in...
Here are my Tags..hope the inspire you to join us...

For this tag I created a back ground using stamps, printed book pages and washi tape then added the toadstool, which was an illustration from an old book. I stamped the bunting on some patterned backing paper and cut them individually and added them to the tag. adding the little girl, which is one from Tim Holtz Relations.
The sentiment was stamped using my set of alphabet stamps.

This tag was made from scraps of G45 papers that I had in my stash...all the images were cut from the scraps...I have added a couple of flags..there are also flags in the poster on the tag...Other images were stamped....
Please come and join in with the swap...I shall look forward to visiting your blog and leaving some  love.

Halloween Triptych

I am so pleased I was ahead of myself and got my project for this months challenge made a few weeks be honest I thought I had already written up my post for today and scheduled it for today..I hadn't,lol.
So this month's challenge at More Mixed Media  starts today and runs for 4weeks.
The theme is always Anything Goes..with an optional twist..and the twist this month is Orange.

I created this triptych from scratch by cutting the 3 arches from pressed paperboard, it's quite thick, so I had to be careful using my craft knife.
I gessoed each piece and then swiped over yellow orange and brown acrylic paints, blending each time with a baby wipe.
Using the fab IndigoBlu stamps I stamped each arch.
For the owl, books, bird and sentiment, I stamped them on some card, shaded them and added them to the arches.
Finally I distressed the edges in ink.
I do hope you will pop over and join us for this challenge at More Mixed Media...there is a prize on offer well worth a visit.

Autumn Tag

I had a restless night so I decided to play for an hour or so in my craft mojo had deserted me for a while and I wondered if I could get a tag done for the challenge over at Tag Tuesday.
I started to sort things on my bench that had been there for a couple of weeks and I kind of slipped in to crafting mode...

I found scrap of hessian and the short twigs, that's what gave me the idea for the tag..I stamped some leaves on some scrap card that had been inked with distress inks..the colours were perfect.
I used a corrugated tag that I swiped with wild honey distress ink then added the hessian, some sisal fibres and the leaves.
I also added a sycamore seed and the twigs.
I had some micro beads that were given to me recently so added them as well.
