Hi you all, it's time for another Tag Tuesday. Our theme this week is *Tales of the Riverbank*. I sat here, storming my poor brain, and wondering what to do, and then I remembered that I live round the corner from the Rhine, and there is a stream directly next to the house here - duh! Problem solved! I made a collage of photos taken along the riverbanks - the ruins of the castle, the shore, the houses, boats and the ferry. The background is a photo of the stream next door, complete with the ducks swimming round. I mounted the photo onto a piece of hand-painted paper in watery green-blue, and added a ribbon made from some matching gauzy material strips, and a little shell, from the shore of the Rhine.
I have included the original collage, too, as the colours in the tag seem to be a bit changed . The photo underneath shows the colours better.
And I decided to make some more mini-books.this time accordion books in matchbox cases. The matchbox has been covered with scraps of designer paper, inked and varnished to give an aged look. The little book has been made from a strip of waste paper, distressed with DIs in Antique linen and forest moss, and stamped with various small motives and quotes.
It was fun to make, and I have another three nearly finished, which I will show sooner or later. I am linking again to Out of a hat creations.
Have a good day, take care, and thanks for looking!
