Have been making some vintage look items lately, and have put them together to make a tag which I am entering into Ginger snap creations challenge and 365 cards.

I used some vintage paper and covered my tag, I then used Distress ink around the edges.
For the letters I cut out random headlines from a newspaper and soaked in tea.  I then dried and cut out the letters needed.
I made the bird by drawing a bird shape onto card and cutting out I also made a seperate wing.

I painted this in burnt umber acrylic paint when dry I painted other areas with a blue/green colour.
I then sanded all over.  I painted a stitched line in white around the edge.

I had some brown lace for decoration and some vintage look buttons.

Movie Madness challenge

Here is my Burtonesque dolls movie madness challenge,
which is based on Edward Scissor Hands.
I have decided to make a tag.
I have distressed the tag and added some heated fibres.  I then added the lace and drew Edward 
I then cut him out and entwined him into the fibres.
Enjoy !

Lots of arty crafting

Hello ! well I have lost track of time again, once I get started on a painting the days rush by in a blur.  Just realised that I havn't blogged for a few days, (sorry). 

Well apart from my new painting, not yet finished so you cannot see this yet.  I have been making some little heart key fobs.
This is a perfect way to while away the evening.
I am going to give these as Christmas presents.

Apart from that, my migraine still persists, am now on a new batch of medication, fingers crossed.  Still managing to be artful to take my mind off it!
