Welcome! I started this blog because I love to craft. I dabble with scrap booking, and card making. I love bending, folding and tweaking paper. I try other crafts, too. I hope to share some projects with you.

Marvelous May Tag Swap

   The theme for this month was Marvelous May. Spring is such a marvelous time of the year. There is so much happening as the winter cold gives way to sunny summer. I really love watching for the baby ducks, geese and swans, not to mention the beautiful flowers.

THIS IS THE TAG THAT I MADE

Front of Tag

Back of Tag

    The front of the tag is a decoupage. I found an image that I loved on the internet. I made two copies and then cut the children and the maypole out. The background was not the most beautiful color in the world so I discarded it and made my own using watercolors. I glued three ribbons onto the maypole and then glued them in place in the children's hands. I then used Flower Soft on the flowers at their feet and in their hair.
   The background of the back of the tag is scrap book paper. The little girl is once again decoupage. I love cutting and layering images. I made Green Flower soft for the leaves on the tree by staining ivory Flower Soft with green alcohol ink. I used Flower Soft for the flowers at her feet.
