wings tag

I love tags. I know you all know that about it. I have boxes of tags that I've made and often wonder what I can do with them.

But.... whilst at Anne's last week... we both took an idea from Pinterest and made a pocket page for tags. It's slightly smaller than an A5 so I could build my own book, put it in my journal or use in a folio.
here's my tag for go tag Thursday
 here's the base of the pocket page.
 the three tags that are going into the pocket page
 the tags in the pocket page
 I think it's really quite effective :-)

Picnic

wow... so  when Ann suggested this theme I nearly fell off my seat! What a hard theme to do... what can you do? I racked my brain for some ideas then the trusty ole Pinterest came to the rescue. I found some pretty interesting vintage picnic photos to make something from. However, I used this fab pic of these two cats going on what looks like a picnic (the basket gave it away)

not a fantabulous picture due to having to use my phone still..... I have no idea where my camera is.

Thanks for looking

Flowers

Is the theme on Go Tag Thursday. Im enjoying joining in with these weekly challenges

Id say my tag is more floral than flowery but I loved making it. Never happier than with a selection of papers, images and a pot of glue

Altered Audrey

This week, the theme on SPA is AUDREY HEPBURN chosen by our lovely Audrey.

I've chosen to use an image that my Lily altered for a magazine blog she wrote at one time. She has put Audrey's head on Richey Edwards from Manic Street Preachers body.


I don't much talk about Lily on my blog but it's just about the anniversary of my beautiful girl passing away from cancer 
I miss her so much and wish this had never happened to us. She was so incredibly beautiful and talented and she had a wonderful personality. A lot of you all know her from The Octopode Factory, she was a pain at times but she was allowed to be... she was only 21 
our lives are forever changed

the ship of dreams

this week, our theme on SPA is TITANIC.

i love the film, so tragically romantic. But the whole story of the Titanic is so tragic and avoidable. Dont think they would have passed their health and safety inspection!


thanks for looking and hope to see you over on Sunday Postcard Art
