Use your scraps

Hi Everybody!

First of all, thanks to all who entered Chrissie's lovely
colour challenge, it was great to see so many varied
entries.  And we have a prize winner, picked out of the hat
by her dear husband Vic, and the winner is:


Congratulations! Please contact me with your address details using

the contact form in the right side bar

and Chrissie will get your prize off to you!

I am hosting the new theme, which is
'Use your scraps'.
As always, tags of all formats are welcome,
and you have 2 weeks to join us,
and can link up any theme, colour etc.
I know we all have lots of scraps, images, pieces of ribbon
and lace left over, so get them out, be inspired,
and hope to see you with your creations here at the blog.
I am showing a large mixed media Buddha tag I made . I used various 
scraps of corrugated card, painted tyvek, coloured net and some
painted paper as a background. Buddha was fussy cut from an
old postcard and sewn on. I will be showing more tags
each day on my blog, Bastelmania

My second tag is a collage made from tiny scraps mounted
on an old revision card. Once again I used some sewing to hold 
everything together:

And now for some good news - there will be a little prize again -
the winner will get a postcard colouring book, a stencil
and some textile roses as well as a couple of my tags:

I hope you have as much fun playing with your scraps as I did,
playing with mine,
and hope to see you linking your tags to us here.

Have fun!
