Letters U and V!

I missed last weeks Tag Tuesday so I have two tags this week - I think the sunshine slowed me down ;-)  Hasn't it been nice to enjoy a bit of sun at last?

Here is my tag for the letter U:

This one took a while to get it to the point I liked it.  There were only 3 tangle patterns for the letter U and I only liked one of them this one is called UNYUN.  I tried some foiling on the pattern which didn't come out as neat as I would have liked so I had to trace over the pattern with a black pen once more.  Then it still didn't look right with the foiling against the white background so I added some colour with the Broken China Distress ink and it still wasn't right so out with the Stickles and VOILA!!!  Finally I like it.  I even had trouble with the ribbon bow and couldn't get that to sit right so a couple of knots and a snip with the scissors and I liked the ribbon too!  Projects are like that sometimes don't you think?  I keep trying though and there aren't many times I have had to give up and resign it to the bin.

My V tag for this week's letter was the complete opposite and it came together quickly and I was pleased with the design right away.  I did have more patterns to chose from though.  The table is VERSA, the Vase is VECHE 1 and the flower greenery is the pretty VERDIGOGH.  As usual all the patterns I have been practicing are from Tangle Patterns if you want to try some out for yourself.

I have two weeks worth of tags to see so I am looking forward to catching up with everyones creations.  I can't believe there are only 4 weeks left of the alphabet.

Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine X


  1. Hello Helen,
    I love your two tags here! But they look hard to do! They are beautiful with their patterns.
    You have done beautiful work!

  2. Lovely tags, I am always fascinated by your patterns! Hugs, Valerie

  3. Love both these, Helen. In particular the V one - so pretty! Sunshine here too - yay! Carolyn xx

  4. Love your tangles - I've been meaning to do some serious tangling for ages, it's just beautiful what you can do with it :o)

  5. Both are fab! Liking the blues!

  6. Brilliant tags, glad to see the U, I missed you! Love the V one, funny how some tags come together so quickly and others take ages, I find that too. X

  7. These are both outstanding pieces! I love the clever way in which you mimicked the tangled patterns with your ribbon ties. Blessings!
