It's time for another double Tuesday at Tag Tuesday and Try it on Tuesday.
At Tag Tuesday our theme this week is Australia. For my tag I used a painting in Aboriginal style which I made for a challenge last year.I cropped the image, and then reduced it to tag size. I gave the image a coat of clear varnish, and matted it with black card. I added the map of Australia and some ribbon and beads with a gecko charm which I had stashed away in one of my boxes. I knew I had it, the surprise for me is finding it at the right time!
At Try it on Tuesday our theme is travel. As usual, you have 2 weeks to join in with the challenge. I have once again used TH's Mr UM, I don't know how often I have used this die cut, but it was a lot, and fits well to this theme. I have used a stamp from Scrollswork for the Sandwich-man, I love this combination of the 2 men, which I have also used many, many times. The background is corrugated card, painted with white gesso, and matted with burlap, ribbon and DP, and a liberal coat of embossed Utee. The image with the sentiment and cases is from CI. The ball-chain is also from TH, the beads have been made from dictionary paper.
My neighbour went walking with me again today, I think I have infected her with the walkie-bug.
The lovely avenue of trees along mossy grass verges was taken in the sculpture park, as was our double-trouble shadow picture.
The second double pic was taken along the Rhine Embankment.
We walked over 14000 steps, and this afternoon I went for a second, shorter walk, bringing my total to almost 20000. It was cold and frosty, but wonderfully sunny, and we really enjoyed being out and about.
Have a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by
