Hello Friends and Followers. Hope your day goes well and that the sun is shining where you are. I feel I am so lucky to have so many people pop by and leave comments and would like to say a big thank you to all of you.
This week at Out of a Hat we have the theme 'Inspired by a Song with a Flower in the Title' There are so many songs with flowers in the title it was difficult to know where to start
I chose Lilac Wine by Elkie Brookes. If you want to hear it then click on the title and listen.
Heaven knows why I chose it cause it makes me cry every time I hear it as it was popular at a time in my life I would rather not remember. Good to cry sometimes and remember life wasn't always as good as it is now.
Here is what I made
I have had this wine bag for ages so thought I would decorate it and maybe decorate a bottle of wine to go inside it as well. I would make some lilac wine but I haven't got any lilac lol.
I painted the bag with white emulsion then while it was still wet smeared some lilac coloured painted on it. I found the lilac flower image and printed it out and coloured it with Promarkers. Then I made the lablel by printing out part of he song. A little button and ribbon to make the ties and that's it .
Now you will want to see what Tracy, Sandra and Janet have made so do pop to their blogs and say hello.
Love Chrissie xx
