Tag Tuesday -- Halloween

Halloween/Autumn is the theme chosen by Valerie on Tag Tuesday. I love doing Halloween and Autumn as the colours are so rich and vibrant. My tag was distress inked and the image is from Lisa's images, and die cuts.
I am also entering this in Try it on Tuesday where the theme is Halloween as well

The second one is also distress inked with stamped images.

Every Inchie Monday -- Bear

Not a very productive week for me, I just can't seem to get going with any enthusiasm. I have done some gardening though, but today the sky is a horrid yellow colour and it looks as if it might rain.
The animal this week on Every Inchie Monday is bear, and I so grateful that we don't have them roaming around the UK.
My stampbord one is shrink plastic and the sewn one the face of a really miserable one. He obviously hadn't had any honey recently.

Every Inchie Monday -- deer

Gosh did I struggle with the sewn one this time, and gave up at midnight. The more I messed about with it the worse it looked.
The stampbord one is shrink plastic.

Fabric postcard

Another fabric postcard for my swap with a friend. This time the word was leaves, and I chose to do Autumn colours for mine. The base is needle felt overlaid with coloured scrim. I cut the leaves from pelmet vilene and coloured them with acrylic paint. I then machine stitched them to the base. This will be the last of the postcard swap, as we have decided to do pages for a fabric book. We are going to choose a textile artist we like and do a page on the same(ish) technique. As we will do a page for ourselves as well we will end up with two fabric books, one from each of us.

Thursday journal with Neet

This will be our last anything goes theme in our large journals. Mine is now full and we are going onto a 8" x 8" journal where we choose three colours and a word each week. Neet is off on holiday so we are taking a two week break.
I have used an already inked page and have kept to the animal theme to match the opposite page.

Tag Tuesday -- All creatures great and small

The theme on Tag Tuesday has changed to All creatures great and small for the next two weeks, this was chosen by Wilma, who has made some lovely tags to inspire us.
I have chosen to use bees as my first tag. I hope to do another one when I get back from my friends next week. I am off for a sewing few days.
