Not Quite Right

Hello all. Been under the weather a bit today and frustrated with myself. You have all been so wonderful with your lovely comments about my first Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas (sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique) entry (please see last post) but I wasn't totally happy with the angel, so I've changed it.

Not a massive change but the last piece of lace seemed overworked/too dark/unangelic to me, and Linda's wings were far more delicate. Yet again my photography skills let this one down as the new layered lace wings are covered in glitter glue. Hey ho.
Pleased to say I'm happier with the next one in the 'series' (see next post) so no more changes.
Thanks for bearing with a frustrated perfectionist. Hugs, Buttons x


  1. Isn't it funny that no matter what anyone else tells us, if we are not happy with something, then we are not happy, full stop. I thought it looked beautiful before but I see now why you wanted to change it and it really is beautiful now - really! Hope you have a lovely weekend and that you are not still under the weather. Crafty hugs, Anne x

  2. It looks really lovely and I am sure you are pleased that you changed it to how you wanted it to look

    Best Wishes Chrissie xx

  3. this is gorgeous! I too was not happy with my first tag, we are so critical of ourselves...your work is amazing...have a fabulous week!

    enjoy *~*

  4. Okay so I'm working backwards so haven't seen your first attempt yet!!!

    You must of had a lovely day today looking at those shadows on your photos - lucky you.

  5. Looks pretty good to me both ways, but I can see what you're after with the change... maybe something in the air, I've been struggling with something "not quite right" too!! But haven't solved it as happily as you yet...

  6. Both are absolutely wonderful! But I too know that "not quite right" feeling, usually what keeps me going for hours and hours on the same piece! Your background is really gorgeous and I am so impressed with the techniques you used to create it - thanks for sharing about those! Every single element is perfection and I especially love the shabby fibers you include as hangers.

    So thrilled to have you joining in my little 12 Tags of Christmas challenge. Can't wait to see what you have for us for #3!


  7. Hi Buttons
