I missed last week of WOYWW (If you want to join in visit Julia) as we had no WiFi in Missouri at my friends house and she has an ancient system so I decided to miss last week and once home it was laundry and catch up on everything. So here is the worktop today
The tags are based on the background design and technique of Tammy Tutterow a very talented artist who is also interested in silk ribbon embroidery. This is something i enjoyed before carpal tunnel. I have tons of ribbon and so decided to use her instructions and make a tag in using her idea. She first stamped with a stamp and ink I do not have so I found a stencil from Artists Cellar using acrylics. I found a foam tool to stamp with and finally got it. Since it was a background I was not worried about the blurry edges. I them swiped each tag with Pick Fence Stain, the only supply i have she used! While it's drying I decided to write this need to finish by next week. Oh good my helper (hinderer) is leaving
My swap for Summer Travel hosted by Stacy Cook on ATT returned and it is quite splendid. The idea was to use the book as a travel journal and fill it with personal travel items. That would spoil it. So now need to also get working on 2 travel books.
That's it for #170 see you next week.
