May - Sewing Mends the Soul...
Finally completed my May Tag following along with Tim Holtz. Took a few days and a bit of rummaging in my old sewing supplies, but I like the way it came out. I tried the porcelain flowers technique with my Melting Pot and UTEE, but I didn't like how my little flowers came out. That is sometthing I'll have to try again some other time. I'm liking the flatter tag better I think. It's got some embellishments that give it depth...but not so big and heavy that they overpower the tag. I used pattern paper from an old pattern and a couple of sewing related stamps by Just For Fun. I dug out my old Dymo label maker for the quote.
Hope I can get my CC2 Challenge #6 tag done before Thursday night's deadline. My first attempt was a disaster. Just don't flip this tag over and look at the back!! I hated to waste a good tag, so I yanked off the grungeboard embellishments I had put on it and smoothed it all off and flipped it over to use the backside to make this tag.
Well, it's time to call it a night. Tomorrow is my long day, so I won't be home till late and most likely won't have much time to play. Here's to hoping that my Muse plays nice on Thursday night so I can get my CC2 tag done before the deadline!
