WOYWW - Maiden Voyage!

Daring to join the ranks of the WOYWWers...so here I am in a nutshell. I have quite an eclectic style but I do tend to border on the vintage/altered side with a genuine love of rubber stamping. I enjoy a good dose of splodge and paint too. Now and again I can also manage to rustle up a cute birdie and some flowers...

Here is a card I made for my Belgian mummy-in-law...I used labels from an ordinary stationers (check how your inks react...) and joined them together with wire in a concertina fashion (afterwards) so the labels can move but the whole thing can stand up.

And seeing as we are in a tag mood, here is another one... I have made it for the Craft Stamper June tag swap challenge. The theme was brown, orange and red. I call it a reversed 3-tag flip! It is hard to photograph as one is meant to peruse each label individually....had to go outside to photograph them as my camera isn't so hot.


And last a little vintage fun using some magazines from the 1950's and a mix of retro stamps. Just love polka dots and red! Next time I will attempt to share some shots of the crafty room which is in need of a make-over, de-clutter and some TLC (or is that me...?)

Finally someone who knows Belgium! Great keep 'm coming :)
Love your tags. I really can't make my things look that way, so I'm always pleased if other people are in to that, that way I don't have too :) I can still appreciate nice stuff.

Welcome to WOYWW! Love your style - particularly as it's not grunge coloured! (As you get to know my blog, this will become much more clear!)
Change your blogger setting to GMT+1 for British summer time and it should pop up when you're expecting it..but i'm often wrong!

It takes me ages to go round but I have made it to you at last ...Welcome to the family ...love your style ...the middle of the trio of tags is my favourite by a nudge.
