Singing Birds & Dreams

I have been on vacation this week with my family and it was really wonderful to be off exploring together. We went on a lovely cruise ship which had some fantastic artwork.  The artwork had me missing my craft space.  Early this morning I pulled up Tim's August  tag and sat down to play.

I made two different tags... I had a hard time deciding which to share first...

I followed Tim's lead on the background but used the Pearl Adirondack Acrylic paint which is fun as it has a shimmer to it which you can't see in the picture but adds a lovely glossy finish IRL. 

Images: Artistic Outpost's Loverly London, Flower Market, and Songbirds.  Embossing folder Sizzix. Maya Road Organza Flowers.  The blue ink is the Ranger Distress Ink - Salty Sea. 
My second tag went sideways on me: 

 Images from Artistic Outpost - Songbirds.  I added some Prima flowers and Maya Road Organza Flower trim.  I used the Ranger Distress Ink - Lilac.

Have a lovely Sunday!



  1. Lovely feminine tags - the central images are beautiful (gorgeous songbirds!), and deliciously embellished!

  2. Very elegant. I love the colors and the floral is so pretty. Hugs, Robin

  3. these tags are wonderful Suzz. both are wonderful. Love the blue and lilac colours

  4. Both tags are so beautiful, love the embossing and the soft colours - really beautiful. A x

  5. Lovely Sue - you've made these very much your own style. The first one is very elegant.

  6. I knew the minute I saw the top one on Tim's blog that it must be yours. They are both totally gorgeous!

  7. These are both stunning Sue. I seem to be having a blue phase at the moment, not necessarily with my crafting (not had time to do much :( ) but just everything I see in shades of blue seems just right to me. We were at my God daughter's wedding on Sunday and her colour theme was shades of blue and I loved it. Those framed images are beautiful and so are the textured backgrounds. Really pretty effects.

  9. I knew this was your tag as soon as I saw it!!! LOL! Love the blue...and this AO image is killer here! Fab work as always!

  10. Such pretty tags. Love how feminine these are. I love the lady in the first one and the pretty ribbon and blue...The second one has such a victorian look too me.
