Orange....


Hello my friends.
I am back to share with you a tag I made.
It is the last week of challenges over at
Summer of colors.
And this weeks color is Orange.
This color was a little tough for me to work with.
It always reminds me of Halloween.


I also wanted to share with you this flower.
I took this shot while we where camping in Utah.
I just thought it was so pretty.. 


Well here it is..  My tag.  I had a lot of fun making this.
I cut my hearts out of of scrapbook papers..
And decoupage them on to my tag.


Then I just used some watercolors and acrylic paints.
Some stamps and rub-ons..


I did a little doodling.


And tied the top off with some eyelash yarn..
So I showed my hubby and I guess he doesn't appreciate fine
Art.. Hee Hee..  He didn't like my tag at all..  
I really don't think he knows what he's talking about.. 

To see all the other entries you can head on over to 
Kristin's blog and see all the other wonderful Orange entries.


So Ladies I have to tell you I am out of town again for a whole week.
Camping out at the ocean..  And boy am I going to miss Myles. 
But I just love hanging out here,  Can you here the ocean waves..
They are crashing in right now as I am typing. 


I will try to get by and see everyone.. 
soon!!

Thanks so much for stopping by..

Till next time my friends..

Beautiful tag, Linda! I guess the heat is affecting your husband, because I think it is fabulous. I am though envious of all your coastal vacations! Yes I can hear the surf! Your photo is so pretty as well, I can not take pictures of my flowers now, I am just trying to keep them alive! Have a wonderful week camping, at least you have a computer! Hugs.

Kristin said...

Oooh, sounds perfect! I love your tag (I know, reminds me of Halloween too ;) and think you did a beautiful job. Love the eyelash fibers and doodling especially. Thank you for sharing this with us - and if you haven't done so already, please feel free to leave a comment to be considered for the orange drawing. xo

Ooh, lucky you, Linda! Camping at the beach! Hope you enjoy every minute. And don't you listen to your husband about the tag. I personally love orange and think this is a beauty. I really like the decoupaged hearts and the pops of black accents. Love the stamped dots, too.

Hello my dear friend, Your tag is gorgeous, orange is not a favourite colour of mine but you've made it yummy:0) Enjoy your break by the sea, I love the sound of crashing waves or the gentle wash of the tide, all the faces of the ocean are fascinating. I would love to live close to the sea, have fun, hugs Gay xxx

I love your tag Linda, really artsy and playful. Love the colors, paint, stamping and of course fibers.

Colleen Dietrich said...

You did a great job making orange and black into something wonderful that ISN'T Halloween related! And I know, husband's just don't get art sometimes, do they?

Suzanne C said...

Lovely tag! The colors are so vibrant on the tag and the layering of colors with effects is wonderful!
