Today was changeable weather, sunny in the morning and a sky full of scudding, black clouds in the afternoon, but I just love those dramatic skies!
Today is double Tuesday - a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and a new theme at Tag Tuesday.
At tag Tuesday our theme is maps, charts and diagrams. I used a map of London for my tag, so I can also link it to Moo Mania. I added some bunting in the form of little Union Jacks. 'Travel' has been written with a stencil, maker unknown, and outlined with a gel-pen. The quote is from Samuel Johnson. Tea Time and the Telephone box have been stamped with Stazon onto foil, I wanted to use red, but somebody forgot to put the lid on it and now it has dried out....Both stamps are from the Artemio Vintage London Set.
I made a second tag for Tag Tuesday, I am not sure whether it's supposed to be a chart
or a diagram. Words like that always make me feel lost....I think my black humour has come through again....
At Try it on Tuesday our them for the next 2 weeks is 'Birthdays with a twist', and you have to use a mask or a stencil. Bee, one of our DT memebers is celebrating a special birthday, and is offering a prize, so if you would like to win it, pop over to her blog and leave a comment!
I was not really happy with my giant tag, it was one of those pieces which I had to do in a big hurry before going into hospital, and did not turn out quite as I wanted, but that's life. I distressed the background and the kitchen counter with DIs and then sprayed it with water to get the colours moving. When it was dry, I used some turquoise metallic paint for the leaves. The hearts and sentiment are TH stamps. The die-cuts are from a Sizzix strip.
I saw this beautiful yellow lichen on a tree today
And in the afternoon I enjoyed the clouds along the Rhine
One of these days I want to paint some of 'my' skies
Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
