Paper Pieced Tags
I made a few tags to add to my stash and to the Lawnscaping Paper Piecing challenge (hope I'm still in time, I haven't check, no worries, it was just fun).
Excuse the photos, not sure what's going on, I am sure it's operator error, but nothing looks right to me.
I used a Sizzix tag die to cut out the tags and then used a mixture of these Lawn Fawn stamps to dress them up:
- Winter Fox
- Teeny Tiny Backdrops
- Critters in ther Forest
- Making Frosty Friends
I paper pieced with bits and pieces that were in my little scrap basket and added some glossy accents and gems and copic colouring here and there. Then simply added some crinkle ribbon which I had dyed using glimmer mist and a little twine bow using twine from The Twinery.
Here are some (poor) individual photos!
Thanks for taking a peek! (Bonnie, thank you for your lovely comment yesterday but I cannot find a blog for you so I was unable to come and "visit".) And a big thank you to everyone who sympathised with me regarding my feet! I feel like such a wimp! I have been following The Biggest Loser because it so motivating to see people that are severely challenged with their weight, actually work out so hard! The problem is that by the time the program is over I think, oh my gosh, what am I complaining about! My knees are not in braces, I don't have stress fractures, I don't have half the medical problems they have (none actually), and I don't even excercise as much as they do, and here I am complaining about my feet! Wow! It makes me feel really ridiculous but it does inject me with the positive energy I need not to let this thing get me down.
Have a fabulous day! It's beautiful out today and the temperatures are apparently going to start falling to something more pleasant! Yippee!
