Tag Tuesday

It's Tuesday already and that means it's Tag Tuesday again. Our theme this week is * seaside*. I have made 2 tags, I'm not really happy with either of them, but didn't have the energy yesterday to do more than read and rest.

The first tag has been made using an image from one of my old German magazines from 1898, showing a trip to the seaside! I have printed the tag onto photo paper, and mounted it on a piece of hand painted paper. I have added 2 of my hand-made beads, and 2 others from a necklace that broke last week. I wanted to use some shells, but the box with the shells and other fishy things has gone AWOL; I will probably find it at Xmas when I am looking for the Easter eggs, or something like that!


The second tag has been distressed with tumbled glass and wild honey. The stamps are from an American company that stopped producing last year, but I've forgotten the name! Update - it was Scrollswork! I added some gold glass glitter for sand. The fibres were from a hat I kintted for someone.


So, that's all for today. Have a good day, take care, and thanks for visiting.
