D is for Devon

Tag Tuesday

I am lucky enough to live in a part of Devon that is not only a designated 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty', (AONB) which is nationally protected for the beauty of its landscape, but is also a World Biosphere Reserve.  Biosphere Reserves are places where conservation and sustainable development go hand in hand.

I don’t have the skills to do the landscape justice on a small tag so I’ve done the Devon County flag instead.

Letter C

C is for Courage

My Tag Tuesday this week is a tribute to the courage and bravery of my beautiful friend Sue who passed away this week.  Rest in peace, bird.

Tag Tuesday 'B'

Letter B
I made two tags for Tag Tuesday this week.

B for Birthday: My first tag is for my beautiful daughter Alex's birthday.  I used purple and black acrylic paints and added a tiny embossed heart, a die cut flourish and finished with a purple velvet ribbon.

B for Birthday

B for Baby: and the second one is of her daughter, my gorgeous baby granddaughter, 6 month old Molly.  I made this tag with pink and white acrylic paints, stamped it with hearts and swirls.  I added Angelina hearts and a pink sari silk ribbon.

Tag Tuesday - Letter A

Painted Tag
Tag Tuesday - Letter A
My first tag of 2013
A is for Art.  I used green and blue acrylic paints, black Posca pen and Lumiere paint to make this tag.  I finished it off with twisted wine bottle wire and a tyvek bead.
