I am so late with my Tag Tuesday tag, only hours to go before the new theme is due. I had a bit of a stressful week. If I mention tooth, abscess, hospital, dentist etc, does that give you an idea? Nuff said, lol.
The Tag Tuesday theme was 'IN THE STYLE OF'. Well, one of the artists in blogland whom I most admire is Suziqu from the totally amazing suziqusthreadworks blog. I just adore her fabric books, collages, fabric brooches, hearts etc etc. She uses layers of the most beautiful fabrics, old laces and delightful images in her projects and embellishes them with beaded trims, fancy jewels and often rusty, weird and wonderful metal objects.
I have tried to make my little tag in her style by using a pretty image, layers of lace, beaded trims and funky metal bits like the disk from an antique grater and a brass flat ring thingy, onto which I stuck a beautifully carved MOP button. Suzy would have sewn her fabrics and laces to the tag, but mine are glued, because my sewing machine is packed away at the moment.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful week everybody, toodlepip xxx
