BIRDS - this week's Tag Tuesday tag

I thoroughly enjoyed making this week's tag. Whenever DS3 and I go out geocaching in the woods, I pick up bits and pieces, feathers, acorns, moss, all sorts of things which might come in handy for crafting with one day. I was so pleased that this week I could use some of those bits.

This is the tag I made for this week's Tag Tuesday challenge, which is " BIRDS " -


The background is a handmade paper with lots of woody bits in it. Feathers and acorn caps found on walks in the woods. Beaded trim was a brocante find, I thought the beads look almost egg like. With a bit of imagination, lol. Letter stamps from a cheap little set from Tesco's, and dark brown seam binding. Of course. Gotta have seam binding.

Thats all for today, but I have to warn you, there'll be more tags tomorrow.

Now I wish you a very happy afternoon/evening/morning, wherever you are.

Dear Liz
The tag is just so naturally beautiful as you are! I love all of the found elements - the acorn caps, the feathers and that bright eyed owl. Makes me feel quite at home in my own natural surroundings.
You have a true gift with these tags and they are gorgeous!
Love and hugs,
Suzy
