TIME on my hands to make TAGS

The theme over at the Our Beautiful World blog this week is TIME. My shabby old French clock face on the mantlepiece was kind of staring at me from behind the candlesticks and other assorted bits, so I had to give it the starring role and photograph it :-).

This is what the mantlepiece usually looks like -


but clock face wasn't happy, it wasn't centre stage! So I removed the candlesticks and flowers -


but I could still hear grumblings about alabaster urns trying to pinch the limelight and those two were fighting about who should be closest to clock face, so I made the decision for them and ruthlessly removed one -


That worked! At least for me, lol.

I also got to spend some time in the craftavan. I had to make a bunch of customer freebie tags as well as the Tag Tuesday tag for this week.

The Tag Tuesday theme this week is STATUES, and I immediately thought of the beautiful angel statues I have often admired on the internet. This is what I ended up with -




I found so many beautiful images when I was searching, I just had to make some more angel statue tags. Like this one, for example -





Thats all for today. I am listening to test match cricket on the computer while I am doing some more Etsy stuff. 

As always, thank you for stopping by. I wish you all a very happy day,

Wish you would do a step by step tutorial! I'd love to know how you make the angels look so much part of the tag, are they backed with card?
They are lovely, anyway.

Hello Liz,

We have to confess that, usually, we pay scant attention to our wrapping or labelling of gifts. Your tags are so beautiful and you must need incredible patience as well as imagination to create them. So beautiful and, perhaps, far too pretty to simply tag a gift. We should rather keep them as treasured book marks.
