Happy WOYWW. I just melted when your images came onto my screen. So beautiful ! Lovely colours. What a great way of using vintage buttons. Ali x #12
Gosh, this is beautiful - not in my colour range and, as a CAS girl, sooooo very far from my comfort zone too but beautiful and even more so since you made the flowers from scratch too.Happy WOYWWKathyk#17
Wow, you should really include that peachy pink in your colour range! It looks divine with that greyish blue. Stunning! Love the ribbon! Wishing you a lovely week! zsuzsa #21
Diana,that tag is GORGEOUS!!!! Oh so, so sweet! I just love the color combos and the composition! Just lovely! :) Blessings for your Wednesday and week! :) Felicia #32
That is so pretty.... the colours work brilliantly together.Karen x
You have an eye for colors...this is stunning!Hugs,Chris #26
Hi Diana, beautiful, as always. I too generally prefer a ruler and scalpel, but the guillotine makes a big difference when doing a lot of the same thing.. Met the surgeon, really nice guy. Told us pretty much what we already knew, so no surprises, which is good! Intends to do the surgery end of September, beginning of October, so have to wait and see for the crop. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #3xxx
Oh Diana, you always manage to surprise us with something gorgeous and this is no exception. Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x 16
This is just stunning Diana - the colors really are beautiful, and the flowers are so detailed someone should be carrying them down the aisle in a wedding dress! I love that a single (gorgeous) button inspired it, and sent you down a path color-wise that you wouldn't normally go on. Sometimes we need that push out of our comfort zone!
Great tag - love those flowers; they are stunning. The buttons look fab too, what a find. Helen #1
Hi DianaSuch beautiful work, the colours are stunning. I have a few buttons like yours in cream. It was a lovely find you must be so pleased Lynn xx
Stunning Diana and I actually love that colour combo, it works really well for a shabby look, - that button is fabulous! Absolutely adore the flowers too, I remember making them some years back, - a great reminder.... Yours look amazing!
Every week your gorgeous tags take my breath away..... stunning.
What an uplifting splash of colour - the peachy pinks are lovely against the soft teal and aqua - and that button really does deserve a beautiful showcase like this.Alison x
Super flowers and the more so without dies! Adore the colour combo too. Thanks for visiting me BJ#24
This is really pretty, just lovely!Whereabouts on the edge of the New Forest are you - I am too!Morti #42
So beautiful but it did make me chuckle - I have found some lovely vintage buttons over the years at car boot sales but just can't bring myself to use them!
As I follow you, I know this is a very different color range for you - but one would never guess looking at your gorgeous tag!! Fabulous button - and equally as an inspiration!! I'm in the midst of packing, so not producing anything (except possibly a mess in my home, lol!) but storing ideas, and this surely is one! xxx Lynn
Ooooh quite gorgeous, Diana - almost good enough to eat! Cakes would look good iced like this. I love the new colour scheme - very fresh and summery and light. I love the distressed flowers. I've watched the video and saved it for future reference. I love how you choose something (in this case the vintage buttons) as a springboard for a design - you always pull it off and achieve a masterpiece!Thank you for your lovely comment - I have been very busy lately and got pretty tired so apart from a dental appointment yesterday, was able to rest a bit. We had a lovely tea for two and enjoyed pigging out on home made cakes! My friend loved my studio and all my work. Unfortunately she is unable to do creative things with her hands any longer because of severe arthritis, but having done things in the past, was able to appreciate fully the amount of work that goes into what we do.My studio won't stay tidy for long, you can depend on that! I know exactly that awful feeling of shutting the door on the mess and trying not to think about it, but eventually it chases you through your dreams and you just know you have to tackle it! You feel so much better once you have.The little pincushion was made by Lunch Lady Jan for the WOYWW ATC swap I took part in a few years ago - it has pride of place on my desk with useful pins for clearing out glue bottle nozzles etc. Sheba is enjoying being used again. The butterfly project will be revealed shortly (prob. mid-Sept.) and I am so enjoying working on the new album. Lots going on and I hope to spend some quality studio time this week although so many activities are clamouring for my attention!Have a great week, and happy belated WOYWW,Shoshi #27
I love the combination of colours and those flowers are beautifull.
This is totally delightful Diana. I followed the link to the flower making, thanks. Still need to camp out in your studio! xx
Your background is out of this world and the flowers are FANTASTIC! What amazing work! The button is really lucky to be a part of this exquisite tag. ;0 How cool is it!
I'm just across the forest from you - Alderholt, just the other side of Fordingbridge to the Forest..... small world indeed.....
Gorgeous tag, love all the texture and detail. I just found your blog by the link at Elaine's blog. I've followed as I don't want to miss your beautiful art! Cheers, Shirley x
