Autumn - Fall into Fall

I did a workshop yesterday for a lovely group of crafters that come regularly to my classes and we made a French themed canvas (I will post it in the week), very shabby chic in style. When I got home I was really fired up to make something vintage and pretty and had a few challenges in mind to enter.

Frilly and Funkie - Fall into Fall
Sugar Creek Hollow - Wings (bees and butterflies on my tag)
The Playdate Cafe - Wine, pumpkin, moss colours


So this is the result. I am really into extending my tags at the moment and have made 3 recently where I have added a DP mount, lengthening the tag, providing a frame for it and extra space for some embellishing and sentiments. I am going to call it my extended tag.

If you look closely you can see two honeycomb patterns, one was stamped the other a mask, I also stamped some plants and bees using Nature walk from SU.


The lace is from the Funkie Junkie Boutique and the words are computer generated.




I love the dimension of these flowers using the TH tattered flower garden die.

Have a great Sunday, it started beautifully sunny earlier but the wind has got up and the clouds have rolled in. Just hope it stays dry.
