Here is the tag for *Tag Tuesday*. I cut a piece of cardboard in tent form, distressed and inked it, and added an image taken from one of my old books, showing a boys camp back in the 1930s. I added some 'tent-flaps' made from cheese cloth, dyed with DI 'ancient linen', and a flag pole with the Union Jack, rather wonky; we would have got into trouble at scout camp for things like that. I never enjoyed camping as a kid, where I went more or less voluntarily (better than staying home!) to camping *holidays* with the scouts or school, and later, as a teacher, often had to take kids camping (Under protest and NOT voluntarily!). I have added a song we used to sing round the campfire, and some tools, made of paper and rolled round a knitting needle to give them some form. The hammer is a little metal charm. Anyone else remember that song?
There's a long, long worm a-crawling
Along the ridge of my tent.
I can hear reveille blowing,
And it's time I went.
There's some cold, cold water waiting
For me to take my morning dip,
And when I return, I'll find that worm
Upon my pillowslip!
And this was another tag I made on Sunday while on my cardboard trip!
