12 TAGS OF 2015 - JULY

Have a look HERE for the details of Tim's July tag. Back in the land of the living after my 2 weeks of 'duty'. Glad that episode is over! I haven't been able to give any thought to this month's tag and as Tim made his to celebrate the USA on July 4th, it was quite a challenge to incorporate his techniques this time. However, I got up this morning with my determination hat on and came up with this.
The word at the top says WISH. It's a bit hidden by the tree charm. I used new distress markers, abandoned coral, hickory smoke and blueprint sketch to colour wash over the images and they look great. So the little acorn is wishing he could grow into a big tree! One day, dear, one day.

THANK YOU TO A FELLOW .............,

I haven't been around last week and this due to a ' you can't get out of this' calling.
Some lovely company and some not so nice.
One really lovely, bubbly lady brought me this yesterday
It's a metre of top class Liberty fabric. I just adore it.
Couldn't pay her, she wouldn't take anything anyway, so last night I quickly made this little thank you canvas.

Made a giggly lass giggle a bit more.

I like bright colours but these are really bright.
One side of the garden, where my perennial border is, is subtle with hues of pinks and purples, but the pond side has tree ferns and bright annuals so it required colour to match.
The pads are nearly complete for one chair, the cushion is finished but I've run out of red material to complete the other cushion. 
On with the other seat pads then.
