Colours of Summer – A Try It On Tuesday Challenge and a Giveaway

Yep its a twofer. Because I can.Tuesday Taggers Admin (Grin)

Right firstly this post is to introduce my DT project for Try It On Tuesday. Pop on over to the blog to join in and see the rest of the inspiration from the DT. You can do any kind of project, but it must follow the theme, and you have a fortnight to link up.

Sunglasses alert, it is a little bright!!

I had a really nice week last week and spent a lot of time sitting in the garden just revelling in how gorgeous it is sometimes just to sit and ‘be’ which is why I thought the chipboard quote I used on this tag was particularly appropriate. (Oops just noticed you can’t quite see all the text).The tag itself is quite a big one, made of chipboard so very sturdy. The other thing I was doing in the garden was a spot of needlefelting – for reasons I really don’t understand I had the urge to open my box of rovings (haven’t been touched for 5 years) and have a go at making these felted flowers. I handfelted each heart shaped petal using a metal mould and then sewed them together. IMO They didn’t turn out half bad. I refrained from grunging it up (hard) and tried to keep it fresh and bright.

Usual rules apply, leave a comment on this post by 9.00 pm on Thursday 31st July to be included in the draw. International players welcome. Feel free to link from your own blogs, let me know you have and I will put you in the draw twice.

 

That’s all, don’t forget to add your own colourful summer entries to the Try It On Tuesday Blog. See ya!!.
