Flag No9 -Funkie Junkie style.

Hello Everyone. 
Flag No 9
I  can honestly say that I was a bit daunted this week by Lindas Tag.
12 Tags of Christmas - Funkie Junkie Style - Week #9
She has a rustic country look going on!
And the first thing that your eyes fix upon is the check bow.
I did not want to put a bow this size on my Flag so then I noticed the stars..... mmmm I thought, I could use those, but nothing was grabbing me tenaciously enough to say; use me, use me (sorry Linda).
I just had to sit back and feast with an objective eye on this creation.
And so it was that I settled on the stars, crackle paint, twine and buttons!

My Interpretation and Flag No 9.

I prepared my substrate;
Gesso, paints, dry embossing, crackle.
Then added my trims.

Chose the elements:
Text from 'Bo Bunny' a wreath die-cut from Memory Box, and the stars were cut on the cricut.

 As you can observe I run the stars through the crimper, glued sparkly sprinkles all over them......... and I cannot remember the name of the stuff to save myself.  
Finished off with buttons and twine.

Yum this confection looks good enough to eat - not sure about the glitter though!
Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog - I am most definitely having a "what's it all about? moment or 6 right now."
I just might take the advice offered by your quote on your header. - sometimes it all seems that something that should be fun is in fact just the opposite!
Now back to your gorgeous tag - I love corrugated card board and have been having a play or two with it myself.
Have a fabulous weekend.

Fabulous Flag. Your twist on the inspiration is just right. Blissful Creating...

Greta said...

Oh my goodness, Sue! I absolutely love today's flag--wonderful mix of elements & love the red & white! I need to make use of my very neglected crimper as the stars were the first thing I loved here. You really did it with this one!

Dawn said...

What an awesome flag this week Sue. Love the way you took parts of the inspiring tag and made it you own on this flag. Everything looks perfect. And I love how you've added the page with them all on show together. Looks incredible.

I see you decided on your plan, Sue! It's a beautiful one with more wonderful colors and details.

Your finished banner is beautiful Sue, the colours are reflective of Christmas and I love the elements you chose to use. The star put through the crimper provides some fabulous additional texture and the tiny button and twine bow at the bottom is gorgeous. It's amazing how inspiration hits us isn't it?

Onion, oddly enough, the one that was most difficult for you to pull from is maybe my favorite. They are all so pretty, but the soft country feel that you've created here is very homey. I love the base..the cracked wood looks wonderful with your crackle and the festive reds and greens are perfection. You've certainly made another gorgeous flag and now I really can't wait to see them ALL together!
hugs to you,
