Art Creations Friday Challenge 40

I have just found this blog and decided to join in with the challenge using the vintage image which they provided.

My entry is inspired by Lilla's from whom I have bought some bags, and from whom I received this gorgeous tag


Alas I do not have her wonderful talent or flair - or years of experience, but her work does fire me up with enthusiasm to have a go!

So this is my attempt for the Art Creations Friday Challenge


The image was in brown, which I have coloured with inks, and made a 'frame' to go around it.


It does look better in 'real life' the gold is very subtle - I took the above photo under a lamp just to show it up - but it is really not that bright.


I think I am going to take that 'flower' off the bottom which I made - it looks too big - I can just tear off the paper - no big deal

Thank you all so very much for commenting - it is so kind of you to take the time and the trouble. - And it encourages me to try even harder too!

it's great Lottie - lovely organic feel to it. the main piece looks like cork or wood bark (although I know it isn't!)

Gorgeous, feely and beautifully combined. I love the worn softness.

I'd leave it as it is, it looks in keeping with the rest of the tag

Lucky you for getting one too - very inspiring xxxx
