Actually I usually call them WIPS (Works in Progress) but UFOs (Un-Finished Objects) is a little funnier. I’ve got a zillion of ‘em. Wanting to do ‘art’ on Sunday (it was cold in the garden) but not having much mojo I tidied my craft room then sat down to tackle a few.
Probably wasn’t the best idea…….
This tag has been sitting around for months. I had been trying to use up some old vellum stickers over a stencilled background. It looked OK but I didn’t really have a feel for where it was going. The Gorjuss stamps were out for another project so I stamped and coloured one and added some flowers (also old stash I’m trying to use up). Feel a bit blah about this one but at least it’s finished and can go in my ‘giftable tags’ box rather than the bin. (If you ever see anything you like do shout, it’s getting a bit full as you can see. And yes I am that sad).
This tag just needed a string. It features possibly the most pointless die purchase ever. It’s from Tonic and I really liked it when I saw it at a show, now I can’t decide what to do with it and I’ve ever only used it this once.
Possibly just my lack of imagination.
A third tag for the box. This one was a Timmy Tag variation I think, and also just needed a string. It looked a bit flat so I stuck a word on it as well. And glossed it. Blah.
Really fed up with moving this MM piece about. It started off with an image transfer that didn’t quite come off but was interesting enough to keep. The rose covering up the bits of the transfer that didn’t work is from a set of weird laser cut shapes I have (they smell funny and are very odd paper) which I had coloured, then clear embossed. Butterflies - just some die cuts I had. I added some gilding flakes and a transfer. Still not happy. Stuck another flower on. Decided to add a word or two – ‘embrace imperfection’ caught my eye and made me laugh. Ironically. Even they wouldn’t stick on in the place where I wanted them to go. Still, done now, no more faffing or I’ll start regretting that second flower.
That’s it for now, but on a mission to clean up more of these UFOs (yep – giggled again)….. more to follow!!
