12 Tags of 2015 - May


The end of the month is looming up fast so I took a few hours away today from being on stage and helping to get the boat ready to do Tim's May tag.


I really loved his vintage style tag this month and as usual if you want all the details they are HERE on his blog.  

Needless to say I didn't have half the supplies so the quote on this month's tag is quite apt:

Out of limitation comes creativity


I used linen instead of hessian and chose a different layering stencil as I had a sewing theme in my head. However this got a bit lost on the creative journey!


I do however have the wonderful little flower dies and am really loving them, although they are quite fiddly (for my arthritic fingers anyway!) I have made these with cream cardstock and the roses with the usual Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges (added and spritzed before rolling). The inner of the small sunburst style flower was inked with Fired Brick and sprayed, again before rolling up.


I absolutely adore this tag and have not thought of using linen before, so now it is out on the desk I am sure I will be using it again!

Thank you for joining me (again) today!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

I really love your delicate linen background, and gorgeous feminine detailing. The stitching is great and I love the almost monochrome look with just those touches of rosy warmth - a beautiful take on the May tag.
