Twilight Tag Swap

  I've discovered a great new site and a fabulous way to get my craft on over at http://minialbumscraps.ning.com/ .  They have really fun swaps and a great group of ladies who are always there to chat or answer questions.  So this is my first swap over on the site and it was a Twilight Tag swap.

   I chose to go with a woodsy theme as the pic takes place in the trees, plus I had this great leaf trim I'd been dying to use.  I made the flowers using white satin and the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die.  I cut 2 of each of the layers then melted the petals with my heat gun just till they curled a bit. Use a brad to hold all the layers together then colour with your fav dye ink spray.  The leaf was cut out of two bonded layers of canvas that I then painted with Glimmer Mist to hand dye.   The twohearts charm was coloured with 18k gold pen and then distressed with alcohol ink.

  I had so much fun putting these together and can't wait to start my next swap.  I encourage you to check out this site so you too can join in the madness of swapping....lol.

What a wonderful wonderful tag! It's so lovely and foresty.
And yes, I have been reading all the Twilight novels and seen all movies, this far. I wonder how the next one is going to be? (That one may be hard to film!)
Maybe I can be in the swap for the last movie? :D
