I mentioned yesterday that I had scanned some small fish images from an old encyclopaedia. I love those little engravings, I had some bird ones the other day for birdie tags. Perhaps I'll find some nice small butterfly engravings next time I look through the book.
Anyway, The fish put the idea of seaside tags in my mind again. Originally, I had planned to use some bathing beauties, but couldn't find any. Darling Anne from Birdcages and Butterflies has now come to the rescue and emailed me some, woohoo! Thank you so much, Annie, you are a star! Dang, I do get sidetracked, lol. Back to the fish and the seaside tags, lol.
I had some white tags, but I wanted them to be blue really, so I nicked my granddaughter's watercolour box ( shame on me ) and did a very gentle blue wash over the white tags. Worked ok. Aged the little printouts of the fish, added a bit of a song called The Crystal Sea, a couple of shells, a little fish and some stickles glitter glue which looked like golden sand to me. Tadaa, seaside gift tags -
Oh yes, forgot to mention, there are lighthouse pictures as well, lol.
Didn't have much time for anything else today, we have our granddaughter Paige with us at today and tomorrow.
Fingers crossed for the weekend, weather should be great, which means a couple of boot sales, a bit of gardening, and lots of feeling great in the sunshine, yay!
Have a wonderful weekend wherever you are. Toodlepip, xx
