Asemic Writing

 Hi Everyone, it's Sandie here and I am hosting the challenge for the next 2 weeks.

First I must Thank Valerie for her theme for the last challenge, it was very popular, so it was nice to see so  many entries.

I am hoping you will enjoy my theme Asemic Writing. 

( Asemic writing is a wordless open semantic form of writing.

The word asemic means "having no specific content" or "without the smallest unit of meaning" )

How many of us have seen this type of script and not know what it was, I didn't, I have to admit I googled it!



I do hope my tags will inspire you to join us over the next 2 weeks.

Have Fun.xx

Valentine's day is coming nearer....

Hi Everybody!

First of all I would like to thanks Michele for her Marie Antoinette challenge in the last fortnight. This time it's my turn to post and I have chosen Valentine's Day as my challenge. As always, you  have 2 weeks to join us and link your tag(s), and tags of all formats and styles are welcome. But it must be a tag!

I painted 2 large sheets of watercolour paper with a mix of purple, dark pink, white and some splatters  in silver and gold, and used them to die cut hearts, strips and other bits and bods, and then set to work to put them together. I used all sorts of tag shapes and just had fun. I am showing three today and will be back in the course of the week to add some more. And I am very much looking forward to seeing your tags!

The first one is a sort of 'Victorian' valentine with lace, flowers and hearts:


Gold card from a choclolate box (I ate them specially for you so I could use the card!), some paint, feathers, stars, a heart and wings and some flowers:


A gifted tag, to which I added silver stars with a stencil, and once again hearts and wings cut from my ainted paper: 


I am very much looking forward to seeing your tags and visiting your blogs, so keep spreading love and be kind to one another! 

Have a great week, take care,
And thanks a lot for coming by!

Marie Antoinette

Hello Everyone, many thanks to Pinky for our last challenge, there were some lovely entries.

Michele is our host for this challenge and she has an interesting theme too, so we hope you will like it and play along. Here she is to tell you about it....

My chosen theme for the next two weeks is "Marie Antoinette." Marie Antoinette is a historical figure, the last queen of France before the French Revolution. Known for being frivolous and extravagant, she nevertheless makes an excellent subject for creating. Here are a few samples to encourage folks to play along.





My Marie images come from lunagirl, most of the backgrounds are from gecko galz. I hope you will create along with us!

Please link your entry below.
Have fun.x

Something New!

Welcome to our first challenge for 2024.

We hope you all will join in with Pinky's theme, it looks fun.

 Hi everyone, it's Pinky here.

My chosen theme for the next fortnight is

New beginnings/craft stuff etc. Anything new.

For my first tag I have gone with the new year.

I used a new stamp set and strips of paper which I also stamped on,

for my background.

I am going to use these in my albums though which is why

I made them a little big bigger.


For my second tag I have gone with an old photo of my late Mum.
The flowers have been stamped but barely coloured.
I used a brand new stamp set for all the little bits
which I bought specifically for scrapbooking.


Please link your tags in the usual way.

Have Fun xxx

Snow Tags

Pinky here popping in to share the new theme.

Unfortunately Valerie is under the weather at the minute.

Her chosen theme for this fortnight's challenge is SNOW!

I have one tag made and an oldie from a while

back which I hope will inspire you to have a go.


My first one is a shaker tag!
I thought my youngest Grandson would get a
kick out of this and the cute penguin would make
anyone smile!!


My second one has lots of embossed snowflakes
and this cute little  snowman dancing around in them.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Words/Sentiments

Hi Everybody!

It's time for a new challenge and this time our lovely pinky is hosting with a great theme. As always our challenges run for 2 weeks and tags of all formats are welcome. So, over to Pinky:

Hi, it's Pinky here and my chosen theme this fortnight is

add words and/or sentiments to your tags. Easy right?

I have gone with Christmas tags as I am way behind this year!

For my first tag I have used a gorgeous background paper

which really did all the work for me and I just stamped

some snowflakes, added some little white dots and stamped

the sentiment to add on top. The top has had a fringe added

to finish it off.


For my second tag I have used the same papers again
but this time the tree scene.
I stamped snowflakes again and added some stars to the trees.
The sentiment was stamped then cut up and layered on card.


I'm off to make some more😁

Gorgeous tags, Pinky! Now we want to see YOUR lovely tags, so keep them coming!

Valerie

Thanks to our wonderful DT sister Sandie who made such lovely tags for the last challenge, and to all who joined in. Hope to see you here again this time round. And this is what Wendy has to say:

Wendy K here from wendyscraftjournal and my theme for the next fortnight is Halloween, a bit late but I love the bright colours that come with Autumn and Halloween and enjoy working with my Halloween stamps at least once a year.  They all have distress inked backgrounds with stamped and die cut images. You can use any media you like, and I look forward to seeing what you do.

A Form of Transport

 Hello Everyone, it's Sandie here, first I must Thank You all for the fabulous tags that you entered for Valerie's theme Autumn Colours.

This fortnight it is my choice of theme, A Form of Transport it can be vintage or modern, whatever takes your fancy.

For my tags I went mono, with another colour. However the photos aren't great as the white seems either blue or grayish, sorry about that, must be to do with the light, or type of card I have used.

The Red Truck


The Red Bus

I hope you will play along, remember a form of transport can be land, sea or air, just have fun.

Hugs Sandie x

Animals

Hi Everybody!

We are starting a new challenge, and this time our lovely Pinky is hosting with the theme animals. Here she is to tell you all about it!

Hi it's Pinky here and my chosen theme is animals,

any sort or shape!!

For my tags I have gone with chickens!

For my first tag I made a mixed media background

with lots of stamping, stencilling and embossing paste.

I stamped and cut out the chicken, coloured him up

and added it to my tag. I finished with a fun sentiment and ribbon.


My next tag is another chuck.
Again I created the background by stamping, stencilling
and ink blending. I stamped the fence and coloured and cut it.
Added my chicken and a sentiment and finished
with a bow. I am a bit in love with this stamp set!!


Gorgeous tags, Pinky, so happy you are hosting, and I love your theme!
As always our challenges run for 2 weeks, and tags of all formats are very welcome.  We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
And whatever you do - have fun!
Valerie

 Hi Everybody!

Thanks to all who joined in last week's challenge. This time our dear Sandie is hosting, she has a lovely theme and alwas makes great tags, so hope you will be inspired by her!

Hi, it's Sandie here and it's my turn to chose the theme for the next 2 weeks.

Here are my Tags, 


This Tag is one of Tim Holtz's large tags that I folded in to a pocket.


Then I stamped up the outside before adding all the elements inside, which are also stamped.


I do hope you can join in and create a tag, any size, any medium, but it must be a Tag.xx


Your tags are FABULOUS Sandie, thanks so much!
Now it's YOUR turn, so we are looking forward to seeing your Tags.

Books

 Hi Everybody!

Hope your week got off to a good start. Today we are starting a new challenge and this time dear Valerie - that's me - has chosen the theme. You can do anything to do  with books - use some book-paper, make a tag about book characters, make a tag which would double as a book-mark - there are lots of possibilities.

Before I show you what I have made I wanted to thank Michele for her lovely challenge of mermaids, and of course, all who entered that chalenge with wonderful tags. And many thanks to Sandie, too, who coordinates the themes, dates, posts etc and has often written the posts while I was ill,

As always you have 2 weeks to enter, and all tags, big or small, real or digital are very welcome. I look forward to seeing what you create. 

I have made several grungy tags for this challenge - I just felt like it, and some are more grungy than others! I  know some don't like grunge, but I do!

Have fun, be creative, and I hope to see your lovely tags here!

Valerie

Here are 2 examples - I will be posting more tags during the next 2 weeks:



This is very grungy, and made with a spare piece of cardboard which happened to take my fancy:

Mermaids, Merpeople

Hi Everybody!

This time round Michele is hosting. Thanks to all who joined in Pinky's lovely challenge.

Here's Michel to tell you all about it:

I'm excited to be hosting our latest challenge. As we welcome summer in my part of the world, it is fun to go to the water and imagine what is living beneath the waves, so my theme is Mermaids, but for sure it includes all the Merpeople! 

Here are some sample tags to get this started.






Images are from dream cafe art and gecko galz.
Please join the challenge and let your imagination of undersea creatures come out to play.
Thanks for these wonderful tags and inspiration, Michele!
You have 2 weeks to join us, and we enjoy visiting your blogs and seeing your creations. And above all,
Have fun!

Valerie
