A couple of days ago I was talking to my dear friend JJ, and mentioned that I had to make a tag with the theme "postcard", and that I had to give that some thought. Now, we both live on the coast here in the UK, JJ in Brighton and I live in Hastings, so she suggested that I should use the typical old fashioned English seaside card. That appealed to me immediately. They are so funny, a bit cartoon like, a little bit saucy, and they are so very English. I had found some old ones at a bootfair a year or two back, and just looking through them again to find a suitable one for this tag made me chuckle.
I had so much fun with this one! I got to mess about with seashells and seaweed, with Stickles
( in tarnished brass and scattered straw ) for the sand and some seashell stamps. Tadaaaaa -
I love these postcards.
A couple of days ago, I finally managed to get my sewing machine out again. I wanted to make a little pillow with a particular theme, a Guardian Angel, or Ange Guardien in French. Very plain, no lace, no fancy flowers, nothing really to detract from the Angel. I used a rustic old French linen, some very vintage blue striped French ticking fabric and printed the image of the guardian angel on to cotton fabric, which I had aged a little in a weak coffee bath -
And while I was at it, I made a matching tag as well. Again, nothing very fancy -
I wish you all a happy weekend, I hope the weather is better where you are, lol, here it is absolutely chucking it down again. Sigh.
