Yes, yes, I know, I am a day early with my weekly challenges post, but I got them done already, go me! I went to my craftavan this morning just to make the inchie for the Every Inchie Monday challenge, and somehow ended up making the tag for this week as well. Hence, once again, a very silly title trying to get both challenges into one sentence.
The challenge for the inchie this week is BICYCLE, and over at Tag Tuesday, we will be doing Q tomorrow. It was tempting to go with Queen, but that seemed so obvious a choice for Q, so I went with QUARTERS instead. Or QUILT, if you like, or even QUARTET! All three apply.
Inchie first though. Dang, girls, it is really difficult drawing a bicycle! Who'd have thought it would be so challenging, it would have me using bad words, lol. I really wanted to do a steampunk kind of bicycle, so I picked the tiniest little bits, from my sewing box of all things, and set to work -
Next, let me show you tag for this week's Tag Tuesday challenge. The image on the tag is divided into four QUARTERS, presenting a QUARTET of religious figures, making a four-patch QUILT pattern -
I used vintage French Battenburg lace tape to divide the image into quarters. I really wanted a religious medal dangling at the bottom of the tag, but couldn't find any in the stuff I had brought with me from England. I had, however, just bought this beautiful silver medal of Ste Therese at Sunday's vide grenier, so I just placed that on the tag for the photo, as it is destined for the shop. As soon as I find a suitable one, I will of course attach it to the tag.
Well there you go, this is a first, lol, me being ahead of myself. Don't think it will ever happen again :-).
Have a great week wherever you are, toodlepip xxx
