Wedding


Hi All, I have been missing in action for a few weeks - I think the weather had a lot to do with my lack of tags although I was also very busy getting my new workshop finished and up for sale.  I had great fun designing The Tag Storage Project and I hope that lots of tag artists out there want to make one of their own - keep your fingers crossed for me.

I go to a fab crop every month where we chat and laugh and fit in the odd bit of crafting.  We have a lovely time this weekend and I caught up with a couple of tags too!!  I am not divulging how much cake, cookies and chocolate I ate but I didn't get any on my wedding tag as you can see!  There is an art to that I am sure ;-)


Weddings make me think of all those wonderful laces and satins we see on gorgeous wedding dress creations and that is what inspired me.  I have used a gorgeous cotton lace which I cut into and made frilly trims for my tag.  I wove two cream satin ribbons for the background of my tag and then stitched on pretty pearl buttons - this one is definitely all about the girl in the wedding!!!  I made a mini bouquet from some more ruched up lace and ribbons and I found a prima flower with a touch of blue which gave me the perfect quote for my wedding tag.  I love it when one thing leads to another!!


Here is a close up of all those lovely trimmings.  I need to check out what next weeks (in two days time) prompt is to see if I can be on time with my Tag Tuesday post for a change!  I am off to check out what I have been missing - coffee cup charged and cookie in hand - don't worry I won't drop a crumb on your wedding tags ;-)
