New Beginnings.

Hi. It has been along time coming but here it is . My first post. I am not a very technically minded person so blogging is new to me so I hope you will bare with me while I find my feet.
There are many blogs  I enjoy and I have always hesitated in pushing that button to follow them but in January I came across TAG TUESDAY on Carolyn Saxby's  blog  LOVE STITCHING RED and I was determined to take part.
This weeks theme is 'hearts' and here is my first tag.

I painted the tag with acrylic paint and stained it with a tea bag. The heart is tyvek and organza which I stitched together with free hand machchine embroidery and melted with a heat gun.
Beneath the heart is a layer of crumpled brown paper and gold foil fused together with painted bondaweb.

At the bottom I stamped the words' TATTERED HEART' and overlayed them with a piece of organza.
Hope you like my first offering  will be back soon with some posts.

Bye for now. xx
