Our theme for the next fortnight is Spring / Easter. You can interpret this in many ways including using spring colours as I have; use Spring as a starting point or an Easter theme, traditional or otherwise. You could even bring in Alice In Wonderland and the white rabbit - as long as there's a link somewhere, you'll be fine.
The challenge at ABAC is wonderfully flexible as ever and remember: you can make ANYTHING as long as you DON'T MAKE A CARD. You must go over to the blog and see what today's teamies have come up and next Sunday the second team go live with their makes so don't forget to see their pieces too.
I've got quite a few pictures to show you so get something nice to drink, a pair of sunglasses and start to scroll down:
|I've made a large tag featuring flowers in Spring colours. The detail images which follow give a clearer view than this one - best photo of a bad bunch!|
|A gusset is inserted at each side on the lower edge of the tag. The pieces were prepared in the same way as the tag.|
|The die cut letters were coloured with distress (dusty concord); stamped with archival and coated with glossy accents.|
|The flower was made as previously written. All flowers had a 'spring' made from florist wire applied. This flower adds interest to the chunky twine at the top of the tag.|
|The florist wire spring and some background detail.|
|The purple flowers have a more elaborate stamp used to decorate them but they have been made in the way as the yellow flowers.|
