Where does the time go? Today is Monday, which means tomorrow is Tuesday, and time for another Tag Tuesday Tag. We have arrived at 'H' in our ABC tags, and I chose H for Hedgehog, and for me that means none other than Beatrix Potter's Mrs Tiggy-Winkle. She is busy hanging out the washing - a woman's work is never done - and sees that one of her littl'uns is trying to scarper off to play with his friends. I don't think he will get far!
This is a little book (A5) I made recently. The covers have been made from the back of a sketch block, cut in two, painted first in terracotta and then in cream, before adding a layer of crackle medium. I did some background stamping on the covers before adding the photo of Erika, an old lady whom I cared for till she died 4 years ago. No matter how old she was, she always had to be properly dressed, her hair set and her nails long and red! She loved lace and jewelry and everything that was pretty, so I put some lace around her picture. The images were printed onto canvas, which gives a nice texture.
This shows the reverse.
Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks for coming by!
