Tag Tuesday and Try it on Tuesday

Hi everybody!
At Tag Tuesday our theme this week is the 'Roaring Twenties'.
The roaring twenties always brings to mind the pictures of the flapper girls, feather boas and suavely dressed men in elegant cars, although for many in Europe and from the end of the decade in America it was a time of grinding poverty after the First World War, when those with no  money fought to exist.

The tag I have made shows the other side, I just wanted to remind us that not everybody was part of this superficial glamour world.



I have used an image from gecko Galz, a pink feather (so hard to stick down!) and some beaded fringing over some long fringes from an old stole.

At Try It On Tuesday our theme for the next two weeks is 'Home is where your heart is'.

I have made a little canvas, treated with structure paste and painted with various metallic paints. The little house has been stamped. I gave it a layer of cheap, clear glue, and threw lots of beads and gem stones onto it.

Have a good week you all, take care, and thanks for looking!

  3. Wonderful tag Valerie and the canvas is full of richness both in colour and images. I bet it it felt wonderful to throw jewels at the glue :)

    Have a great day

  15. Lovely tag with the fine ladies, such a contrast to the first picture. It was the same in history lessons at school, mostly about Kings and Queens and politicians. I like your bright and shiny little picture too.

  16. An era that fascinates me but I suppose the same with the Victorian era, wonderful if you are part of the privileged and elite but not so wonderful if you are living at the opposite end.
    Such a fabulous tag.
