TAGS for EASTER


...Easter themed Tags...

...hello everyone...today I'm sharing with you the Tag I made for our Easter Swap...to say I found this challenging is an understatement...challenging in the fact of getting what was in my head on to the tag...but I got there and I'm pleased...


...laid on top of of this gorgeous piece of burlap is a strip of White Denim...the cross is made from an upholstery fabric called Heligan both from Laura Ashley...I wanted to make a thorney crown  like the one Jesus was made to wear but the fine barbed wire i'd made just overpowered the whole thing so I kept it simple...
...the idea of the nest & bird with the eggs was to indicate the new life...




...these little crowns were simple to make...as were the nests...



...these eggs were made with Fimo...


...my birds looked a bit like Piranha's so I added some feathers...






...I hope this Tag captures what Easter is all about...

...thankyou for stopping by today...

  1. That is lovely! So nice to see what you've done with what was on your desk. I'd be thrilled to receive such a beautiful and textural tag so I'm sure the recipient will be pleased. Definitely sums up Easter and all it's true meaning so thank you for sharing it.

    I love that WOYWW has shown me so many different kinds of art...I love to see how our minds work to create the art we each love.

  10. Really Kel, because I'm late I'm enjoying the chance to browse other posts because I don't usually manage to, so glad I can! wonderful marvellous work, was really unable to work out what the fabric was going to be for on your WOYWW post, so that doubled th epleasure when I saw the finished tag...marvellous, and absolutely you've encapsulated Easter.
