Sorry to anyone who stopped by to see last weeks tag (Theme 'Goosey'). I was a little under the weather so I didn't manage to get one done.
I was thinking of doing an image transfer onto fabric and I did take a couple of nice photo's of a duck (ducks are aloud) in preperation so I thought I would at least show you the image I was going to use.
However, every cloud has a silver lining and that is that I can post my tag for this week on the actual Tuesday,which is a first for me.
At the moment I am practicing some techniques from a lovely book called Paper, Metal & Stitch by Maggie Grey & Jane Wild. One of which is embossing metal shim ( or in my case a used tomato puree tube). So I decided to use this technique on this weeks tag. (theme - ' Easter Egg'). I cut open and washed the tomatoe puree tube and in the absence of an embossing tool and ideally , a mouse mat to work on I used an old ball point pen to emboss the pattern and a magazine to rest on .
I then painted on purple acrylic paint working the paint into the recesses of the embossed pattern and then removed the paint off the surface by wiping over with a piece of kitchen towel.
There is more I wanted to share with you but I have to dash off now to watch The Vampire Diaries so I will try and catch up tomorrow.
Bye for now xx
