Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
Today we had sunshine, so it was good to be outside enjoying nature.
At the Three Muses Challenge the theme is 'get ahead, get a hat'. I am also linking to Moo Mania and More, corrugated cardboard.
I made these tags last week, but didn't get round to posting them till today. The first one has been made from cardboard, partly peeled, painted with gesso, and collaged with letter fragments and gilding flakes. The image is from a magazine ad, and has been fancy cut, and crackle glazed. Now the lady has wrinkles! I gave here a hat - with hat needle - and embellished her with lace and little roses to complement her flowery hair style.
The second hat tag was an 8"one on which I had tried out some stamping and collaging, which I didn't like. I ripped off what I could, painted over the rest, and added some paper napkin scraps using mod podge. The lady was a magazine cut out, which I varnished and collaged. The hat with the watering-can she is wearing is a brooch which I have had since I was a kid. The needle has been missing for years. I will put this tag on my memory wall, as it is a souvenir from past times.
Yesterday I walked down to the lake near here, a lovely peaceful corner - at least when no kids are playing there!
Have a wonderful weekend, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
