Tag Friday at A Vintage Journey

Hello and welcome to a simply created tag celebrating silence .......


As it's a fifth Friday in the month the Creative Guides at A Vintage Journey have had their usual fun creating a tag, normally from bits and pieces lying around our desk! I have had lots of fun with the gelli plate this last month and so I took a piece and cut a tag and added some over stamping. I have kept the decoration to a minimum as I didn't want to lose the background.





And here is the paper I cut the tag from.  I am always delighted the way the gelli plate creates such lovely combinations of  colours and smudges!


Do hop on over to A Vintage Journey to see what my fellow teamies have created - I am sure you will find alot of inspiration and some very different techniques.

Have a lovely weekend and hopefully the sun will shine and there will be time for crafting!

A Cup of Tea for Your Art

..... that's our new challenge over at A Vintage Journey and no surprises that it is me who is hosting the challenge!


You know how much I love dying anything that comes across my desk and this month I am challenging you all to pour a cup of tea (or coffee) and use it in your project.

In your cup you could dye lace, ribbon, wood, paper and flowers, or use it to create splashes or cup rings on your project. And don't just limit yourself to "ordinary tea" - there's green tea, yellow tea, black tea, herbal and fruit teas - whatever you've got in your cup!

As I am the host this month I am only going to give you a few "sneak peeks" as I will be back later in the month with a full project tutorial. I have used Eileen Hull's Wrap Around Journal die to create this little vintage book full of stamped papers and envelopes.



In the meantime why don't you hop on over to A Vintage Journey and check out all the wonderful projects created by my fellow Creative Guides. You will be totally inspired !!

So get the kettle and get crafting!
