Feeling BLUE?

No, not at all, it is a gloriously sunny day today, and although the wind is bitterly cold, it was such a pleasure walking the dogs along the cliff top this morning.

But, BLUES is the theme for this week's tag over at the TAG TUESDAY blog. Yes I know, it is only Monday, but dang it all, I am in the mood for creating lately, so I got my tag done early, whoopee!

I started with a piece of dotted paper from a 6x6 stack called Silent Night. I made a big blossom from a length of recycled sari silk ribbon and added some vintage stamen to it. Then I added a little spray of small vintage French flowers/leaves (?) made with tiny little blue beads and some small blue flowers from ArtJoyStuff's Etsy shop. A little stamped script, a few stamped birds and bees to remind me that Spring is just around the corner and that was just about it -






And now I have to do something about my poor neglected Etsy shop. First the rotten cold and the spurt of creativity have meant that I have not added anything to it for quite a while. Off I go to photograph, edit, measure, package, weigh and write. Or give a a good excuse to create something else, tehehehe.

Have a great week, and thank you for stopping by,

Oh what a glorious display of the most gorgeous shade of deep turquoise? What a sweet rose fashioned from the sari ribbon and it highlights all of the vintage beads on the copper stem and complementing the sweet little blue ones from Kimberly's shop.
Wishing you many hugs with blue skies ahead!

Liz, your blue tag is just so delightful. I love the sari silk ribbon rose. I also love how you added the aqua beads in the photograph to enhance the blue tag. Lovely artwork and lovely photograph.

A wonderful tag Liz, love the blue color and the small flowers of beads, it's because of the changes on my blogs you suddenly see a lot of posts in your reading list, I moved many posts from my other blog to my Mixed Media & More blog, thanks for all your sweet comments.
