It’s a spring thing

I’m back here to share my second project made for the “Spring is Sprung” challenge over at My Artistic Adventures. Using the same bird collage sheet, I’ve created this shabby chic tag.


The base of the tag is a scrap of corrugated card that I’ve painted white. I always mount corrugated card onto another piece of cardstock as it can be surprisingly feeble. Not only does the additional layer make it more sturdy it also means you can write on it too. I’ve layered on several pieces of thin gauze/muslin, pulling at the fibres to create a wispy texture. At the base of the tag I’ve layered on white lace and pale pink organza rose trim.



I’ve glittered the edge of the image and tucked it under the lace adding the word tile on the top.


A trio of pale pink  buttons and some ribbon completes the look.


Thanks for buzzing by.

  1. Wow, that’s really amazing texture, I love all that gauze/cambric background, the lace and the flowers are so beautiful and fragile it really gives a spring feeling!

  2. I think I spy another appearance of your Great Tit, this time on a very snowy background.

    PS I keep promising myself that I shall write now I am back, fingers crossed I find time later.

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
