Hand written letter.

Over at Tage Tuesday the theme is also the letter H this week and I have gone with H is for Handwriting.

Tag has been made up from an assortment of items on my desk or readily to hand. The tag hanging is made from some tape heading from a pair of  really old curtains I had thrown out but not before I had rescued the tape along with the binding on the edges of the curtains. Flower was a reject sat on my desk that hadn't turned out quite right for the project I was working on so I removed the centre and replaced with a pearl. Leaves were templates I had used on another project (so I just coloured with brown ink). The lace was part of some snippets I had sent me by Sabine (Colour Fly) and the box it was in was still out from using some up last week. Stick pin and beads were already out as I had been playing with them on a previous post. The stamp for the letter is by Crafty Individuals that I simply printed onto a scrap of waste paper and tore round the edges and splashed with water. (I had a paintbrush standing in a pot of dirty water waiting for me to clean it). Oh yes waste not want not here.!!!

  17. Your project is simply beautiful. I always love reading through your supply list, nearly as much as I enjoy looking at your project...whatever it may be. You are the best 'utilizer of unusual' supplies, I believe I've ever seen. Such fun. You definitely have the artistic 'eye' to see the unique-ness of objects. TFS

  18. This is beautiful! I wish I had items like this laying out on my desk--I'd make a tag just like yours! Thanks for playing in Bugaboo's Anything Goes Challenge.

  19. Hullo there Mrs. A what fun you are enjoying here...love the colour.. and all the ingredients fascinating to hear how they came to be there!
