Our theme at Tag Tuesday this week is locks and keys, which offers many creative possibilities.
I made 2 tags, as I couldn't stop once I started....
The first one has a background stamped in various layers and then distressed, and mounted onto a second tag made from corrgated cardboard, partly peeled, painted, and 'rusted' with Viva rust. The sentiment is a stamp from TH, the flourish is from LaBlanche, and the background stamp is from EBAY - I don't know more! I fastened the tags together with a large eyelet, and added a heart-shaped lock from LaBlanche on a ballchain from TH. The key is a brad from my stash. I clear embossed the sentiment after stamping to give it more definition.

The second tag has been made from a piece of card where I tried out some new stamps from TH that I got as a present some weeks back. I distressed the card with dried marigold and wild honey, and stamped with Archival sepia in a random fashion till the tag was full, The heart was made in a mould using candle wax remains, and coloured with Inka Gold in gun-metal grey and copper. The tags have been fixed together with a TH paper clip, and I added some tissue tape and lace in one corner.
Today started off cold and misty again, but got better in the course of the day. I walked along the beach, and enjoyed watching everything.
I love the different colours of green, each tree seems to have its own special shade.
In the afternoon I visited the horses, I sometimes wonder what they are thinking about when they are standing around all day.
Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
