A Marianne Mixed Bag

A few of my samples were shown on Crafter's Companion Marianne shows on Sunday and I thought I would share a couple of them here.
My first piece is a huge tag which I decorated with the Marianne Camera Die which I die cut from Marianne Romantic Journey papers and I distressed the camera a little with a touch of Distress Ink around the edges.
Tim Holtz Remnant Rubs Words have been added to the Camera die cut and along the side of the tag. The background of the tag is from one of Tim Holtz Paper Stash again distressed around the edges. A DESTINY Philosopy tag has been added to one side for added dimension along with two wooden hearts.
A Marianne Travel Charm has been added for further interest along with a large dimensional flower and journey/travel definition.
Two wooden flower buttons threaded with twine along with more Remnant Rubs complete my tag.
My second piece is a canvas which again uses those warm brown vintage tones that I love along with the fabulous Marianne Apron Die. The background is a piece of Tim Hotlz Paper Stash.
I cut two further pieces from Tim's Paper Stash, two recipes, one being for Pumpkin Pie and that small piece of paper was the inspiration for this piece. I distressed the edges of the recipes and coloured with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. I also added three small decorative pumpkins to follow the theme though the whole canvas.
PUMPKIN PIE has been added using Alpha Parts and I have stamped the SWEET sentiment onto white card using the Marianne Scallop Die and Sentiments set.
COOK has been added using wooden letters and I have added cutlery wrapped with twine.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I always love to read your kind comments.
