    Happy Monday! It is fall again now that our snow has melted. Can you believe that we had two separate snow falls and October is just ending? Crazy weather here in New York state.
     Guess what? Linda at the Funkie Junkie mentioned me in her inspiration for week 8’s tag! Me!!! How cool is that?? I inspired an awesome and talented artist. Thanks, Linda, you made my day!
   So for this weeks tag I loved Linda’s muslin but I don’t have any so I took my inspiration from her flower and newsprint background stamp. The flower was cut from Tim’s tattered florals die and sprayed with my favorite glimmer mist, ‘suede’. I put a pearl brad in the middle. I kept this tag very simple because I wanted the flower and wings to be the focus. I stamped the wings by Tattered Angels, sprayed them gold and then layered them. Lastly I used the memo pin to display a saying that I love about the holidays. Hope you are getting excited about the holidays and spending time with the ones you love. I am!
    Thank you for looking.

Grungy Monday

    This week I finally fit in the time to play along with ‘Grungy Monday’ at L3 Studio. The goal was to use perfect pearls using the Techniques by Tim found here. Love this technique. I have used it several times.
     I decided to go simple for this tag. I used the petfect pearls for the owl, a few different distress inks for the background, lace, bling, a flower and some german scrap for the crown.
   Thanks for looking and enjoy your weekend.

    I am very pleased to say I am officially caught up with the Funkie Junkie tag challenge. I will now be posting a tag once a week as I complete them along with the challenge.
    The inspiration tag for week 7 was full of golden goodness, glitter and texture. Love how Linda used corrigated cardboard for added texture. I took my inspiration from the clear embossed snowflake background. I used a doily stamp and bling to frame this adorable little girl. Her winter coat, hat and muff are fabulous! A flower, french script ribbon and an adage ticket complete the tag. Wow, 7 tags complete. I better start thinking about display options for my advent calendar when it is finished.
   Enjoy the rest of your evening!

    Linda’s inspiration tag for this week has an angel. I LOVE angels! The wings, the halos, and the innocent faces of cherubs…what’s not to love about angels.
      My inspiration was of course the angel and the background lace. I added some felt border to the bottom. I love the glass flower (vintage jewelry charm by Making Memories.) I sprayed some tulle a gold color. I think tulle or any kind of fooffy fabric looks fairy like don’t you agree? I also added a beautiful gold embossed wing. What is an angel without any wings? I finished the tag off with a Tim Holtz philosophy tag.
      Thank you for stopping by and don’t forget to visit the Funkie Junkie.

     Are you tired of seeing tags yet? Well, I am not tired of making them. I am having a great time on this project. It fits my busy life perfectly.
    So, onto the tag. I love this vintage image probably because I live in a house with all boys.
    My inspiration from Linda’s tag was the embossed 25 from Tim Holtz’s Bingo Card embossing folder. I used some brown crochet trim and gold german scrap on the bottom. French script is stamped in the background and don’t you just love those ornate plates by Tim Holtz? Check out the Funkie Junkie. She is awesome and so is this challenge.
     Today I went to my first crop. I went by myself (boo hoo) but it turned out great. I got things accomplished and I won an awesome door prize. I am looking forward to more but with friends.
Happy Saturday,
Kate

    These pages started out as practice for a new technique I learned on You Tube. By the time I was done I was very dissapointed with how it looked. A couple days later I came back with fresh eyes and slapped on some more texture, paint and images. The little man is my Winston! Isn’t he too cute for words? I am finally pleased with the outcome. Guess that shows me, huh. Never give up, just come back later.
Happy Thursday!

     The inspiration tag for this week is so amazing. My favorite part was the reindeer, that cheese cloth and the stickles.  That kind of descibes the whole tag but I can’t help it. I love it all!
    My tag mainly draws its inspiration from the bow around the reindeers neck and the snow flakes in the bottom corner. I never use bows so I decided to work one into my tag. Snow flakes are a must in Christmas tags aren’t they? I really love Paris so this is a tag themed ‘Christmas in Paris.’ I’ll forgo all the boring details of what I did this time and just wish you a happy viewing! Don’t forget to join in the challenge at Funkie Junkie.Thanks for stopping by!
