may tag

Here I am finally posting my May tag! Or at least hoping to because yesterday & this morning I kept getting an error message on the iPad.

I struggled to make decisions on this one. First for the embellishments, then for the paper and finally for the tag background colour. I tried bundled sage, scattered straw, picked raspberry & rusty hinge - the latter being the one I finally went with.

Here is the paper I chose

and here is the end result on the other sheet of paper that I liked.

The pen nib & FIND word stick are Tim Holtz
Kokopelli was a metal button, he's had his "shank" removed
The key, mini dragonfly, "love joy peace patience" metal tag all came from the USA
The butterfly is a Sizzix stamp/die set that I've mounted on a frame that has been cut from a metal food container and then embossed & coloured with alcohol ink

The tie is eyelash yarn from my stash


  1. Fantastic tag Sally and lovely papers.
    I hope you find a solution for your lost photos.
    Sorry I would be in a panic to know what to do.
