Inchie and Tag

Hello Everyone nice to have you drop by.
We are back to rain, wind and cold again so I am hoping summer hasn't come to an end already.

This week at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Lavender. It amazes me how there are such wonders to see from fellow crafters and all in just one square inch.


I did a lavender bag. I love the fragrance of lavender and it always reminds me of my grandmother.

Now to Craft-room challenge where they are asking for sun, sand and surf this time



I started out with a turquoise coloured tag and used Oil Pastels to make some sand, sea and sky.The little boat, waves and the clouds are cut out from paper. The sea spray is correction fluid and I did simple seagulls with a black pen--oh I drew the sun as well-wish I could do that for real today. I tried a sailor's knot for the tag tie but I am not sure I got that right.
 We have lots of yacht races in our bay here and it is amazing how quickly they go even when it isn't really windy.

Have a great day all

Love Chrissie x

That is a lovely inchie! Great idea, I never thought of the bag - I sometimes use it to help me sleep (put a little lavender bag into the pillow slip). Great tag!

That little lavender bag is gorgeous! I have several in my drawers but they are in Proven├žal style fabric as I generally get them in France of our local market :-)

Correction fluid perfect for sea foam, genius. I wonder do the numbers have any significance? Thank you for sharing with us at Craft-Room challenge XOXO

Yvonne beat me to it - I can smell the lavender from that inchie! And the tag is great - the sand looks textured, so clever, and the little starfish are a great touch!

We had a lavender bush right outside of my bedroom window. Lovely smell, so I like your idea for the Inchie. I love that sea tag. Great idea for the waves!

I love your lavendar bag! Beautiful.

Jenn said...

Totally cute sachet bag! Excellent idea for lavender because it's how you see lavender the most, probably! SO brilliant.

Also, really like your tag... I think I might have to go peek at that site and see what THAT is all about. Everyone does all of these cool things. Where do you all find the time????
