Owls

Good Morning One and All
Thank you for all your very kind comments again last week. It is so nice to have such genuine encouragement; I really appreciate it all so much *hug*
I finished this tag on Sunday, it just came to me in a flash and off I flew. Woohoo! Wish they were all so forthcoming. (should that be 'Toowit-WooHoo!'?)......... 
Sorry ;) 
Here it is:


I covered a tag with some pages from an old dictionary and added just a wee bit of Antique Linen DI, (only a wee bit as the pages were quite yellow anyway). I found the owl and books image on Google and coloured it with promarkers. The letter beads were white which I coloured with a gold promarker and the owl bead is fastened on with some wire which I corkscrewed to hold the bead in place. The string tie was a lovely bright white which I didn't want so I squished it onto the antique linen DI pad to colour it. (Grungy fingers are clean again) 
I'm looking forward to seeing all the wonderful art you post here again this week and I hope it's a fabulous one for you all - ttfn - :0) x

ps -  I can still smell the strawberries on last weeks tag. Yum :-D  And I chose an Autumnal red for my font this week; it's so nice to have the chance for a play about when one doesn't have a personal blog, hehe. Thanks for indulging me ;) x

  2. Wow I like it! great little tag Mo I like all the elements you have used the fit together perfectly in this little studious tag, great background and I like that little button up top. Isn't it nice when you get the idea for a theme from the word go and you don't have to struggle with it :) I have had the opposite for a while now but hopefully that's changing :)
