Wow! Can you believe I actually have something to post today? :)
Thanks for hanging in there with me! I hope to be less busy after the next couple of weeks but right now, I just have to much in my plate -- my bro's wedding, one of my best friend's wedding, vacation to Hawaii, decorating for a friend's baby shower, getting our old condo renovated, and relatives staying at our place. Whew!
For this project, I did my first tag swap. It's not your typical tag -- there's no hole/ eyelet on top with yarn or ribbon. The only specifications were it had to include a flower and the color pink.
I glimmer misted a piece of cardstock, stuck some Hambly overlay, lace and ribbon. I made the flower using a piece of painted paper towel from a kol laj kit. Added some collage pauge, button, and metal flower embellishment.
Made it while watching last week's Project Runway episode. All of that designing and sewing always inspire me. I liked how my tag finally came together in the end ... it even looks like I did some sewing with that cinched ribbon :).
Speaking of, did you see last night's episode?? LOVED it! Poor Valerie though. And I am so proud of Mondo!!
P.S. Any advice on how to store Copics on a plane ride? I wanted to see if I could get some crafting done but am worried about how to deal with all the pressure?
