Hang out the flags and Paris

Hi All. Back to rain and wind here-well never really left it yet but we did have a little bit of sun yesterday before the rain. Thank you for calling in to brighten my day

At City Crafter the theme this time is Hang out the Flags
I couldn't think what to do for this but my boring notice board has needed something to give it a lift so I made some bunting for the bottom. I had lots of little pieces of matching material so just cut out the shapes and hand sewed them and stitched them onto ribbon.

Moo Mania and More have Paris as their theme this time.You can make anything you like so long as it follows the theme no need to add a Moo unless you want to.

My backing paper was a prize from a challenge and is by With Wild Abandon-it was a digital download but I printed it out for this project. I inked and splash here and there then added an image that I cut from the Mother's Day card that my daughter sent for me. The bit at the bottom was also from the card. This is now stuck in one of my art journals.

Have a beautiful day

  7. Great bunting to adorn the noticeboard - lovely way to use up small bits of fabric - and the page is just a treat. Lovely soft lilac colour tones and those flappers are fabulously adorned.
    I'm sorry to have been MIA again lately. I've got a couple of weeks coming up soon where I hope to do some proper catching up.
