I had promised a blogging friend to scan some pictures from a very old dictionary, just little engravings to use on tags. I had a lovely time going through the many pages and finding images which I thought were suitable. In the end I decided on bird images, they were just too irresistible.
I loved them all, so I printed them out for myself as well and started messing around with them -
Of course I spent so much time searching through the dictionary that I ended up having to take photos with flash, which I really dislike intensely. Still, it will have to do for tonight.
I only made a couple of the birdie tags, but I am going to make some more tomorrow morning, promise, lol! This picture is probably closest to the proper colours and shows that lovely gold metallic " Emperor's Gold " so nicely -
You'll have to ignore the flash reflections etc in the other pics , like in this one, for example, with the tags on a sweet little silver plated flat basket which I picked up a little while ago ( and haven't polished yet, lol )-
I also made one other tag today, to go with a lovely customer's purchase -
Thats it, a very short post for me, lol, and yes, I heard that sigh of relief!!!!
