Hello Again!

I decided that I’m enjoying this hot, hazy and humid weather we’ve been having because I can stay indoors in the a/c and not feel guilty!   Since the group I’m with has been working on an Altered Book project, several of our members have been sharing and showing us many of the  techniques used achieve a variety of looks.   I am learning so many new things but what’s really fantastic is it has given me this immense appetite for experimenting.  I also found that I had many of the items needed – I had bought them long ago and stuffed them in drawers, only to forget about them.   It’s been wonderful to be able to pull these items out and use them.  So, the past several weeks have been filled with trying this color and that color, or ink, or spray, and finally trying transfer techniques I’ve wanted to try for years!  I used the packing tape transfer technique on my  Eiffel Tower tag (I’m into tags now) – it is very light but maybe you will be able to see it.


The tag is still a work in progress! 

The group I’m with has several swaps this month and we’ve all been busy with that.  One of the swaps was using a template from, Domestic Goddess Apron and to make an apron and decorate it.  I had such fun, I couldn’t decide which one I liked the best, so I made three!   So my partner won’t know which one she’s going to get!

We also have another swap – to make a tag with a theme of “Call to the Sea” – I had a particularly hard time with this – I just couldn’t seem to come up with anything.  Finally, this came to me but I’m not real happy with it.  Would love to hear what you think.


The next couple of tags are ones that just came to me.  I hope you like them.  I’ve enjoyed working with color, or staying within one shade.  As always, I’ve had fun going through my boxes and boxes of embellishments, trying to find the perfect ones for each project.  So while I was searching, I was also organizing and reorganizing. 

The first  “Road to a Friend’s House is never long”, then “Dream and finally, “Far East”.




I think that’s about it for now.  I have several tags I’ve been playing with the color.  But I still have two items to go for this month’s swaps!  Guess I’d better get busy.  Thanks again for stopping by.  I love to have visitors!
