TAG ~ Enjoy Life & Sewing

Good morning all,
 Just popped on quickly to add these couple of tags I've made, the top one was made using Pion's For Father papers, with hessian, lace, clock charm & cheesecloth from The Ribbon Girl
the second was made also using Pion paper but from Alma's sewing room collection, the hatpin, hemp twine, tulle, lace, lilac roses & pearls were also from The Ribbon Girl.
I would like to apologise for being such a bad blogger, I don't seem to get time to comment these days and the coming month is likely to be even busier with my family coming home, so please don't feel obliged to comment it's very kind of you to just stop by, when things calm down again I will get back into blogging properly and visit all your wonderful blogs.
Have a great weekend

Tissue Box

Good morning dear Crafters,
 I'm back with a plywood tissue box I bought from Sarah's  Shop Craft All Day
I have tried to make it a shabby chic one, hopefully I've succeeded :)
First of all I glued a few bits of paper to the box, and used gesso to dry brush over the rest of it, I dabbed on some peeled paint distress ink stain and brushed it in with some water, using an ink pad I added Vintage photo ink to the edges, I stencilled using Gesso and Texture Flourish by Memory Box on the top corners and stamped here and there with KaiserCraft Script & Postmarks stamps.
(lots of pics)

The stunning lace 75mm 'Michele' White Guipure,  String Pearls, Pink 20 & 10mm Open Roses, Iced Lime Green Seam Binding Ribbon, Hessian, small Lace Ivory Butterfly, Small Oval  Lady Cameo, Cheesecloth, Key with Scrolled Heart Charm 
All the products above are from The Ribbon Girl Shop 
Thank you for looking, hope you like it.
