This week's tag and inchie challenges

" Makeup " was the inchie challenge for this week. Oh heck, I don't wear makeup very often, so I wasn't going to get much inspiration from my dressing table, bathroom cabinet or my teeny little almost empty makeup bag. But then I thought, hey, clowns were lots of makeup! And that was it, I started searching for a clown image, because I still don't have any colouring pens here, lol. Found one in a French magazine, a tiny pic, perfect for an inchie -

The second photo shows the inchie on an old postcard with a young lad in a clown's costume, and the third one  shows the inchie on the Larousse dictionary page I used to cut the word clown out of.


" PURPLE " was the challenge at this week's Tag Tuesday blog. I had an image of purple flowers in my image stash and I had purple bling in my sparkly gem stash! What more could I possibly need, lol. Well, lace. didn't have purple lace so I used purple ink pads to colour some French lace and a bit of muslin. Purple background came from a French magazine, i think it was a photo of a room with purple wallpaper.

There are so many gorgeous PURPLE tags on the Tag Tuesday blog, do have a look -

If the weather is so bad again tomorrow that I can't dig the veggie patch, then I'll post pics of some more brocante finds for you. Until then, toodlepip and thank you so much for visiting. xxx

I love your clown inchie. You even made a frame around the face, so the face mus be very small. I love how you arranged the inchie on the photo and the dictionary page.

Hi Dear Liz
Your inchie is very clever. You have had your immagination stretched a bit further being in France.
The tag is so vibrant and the image is very Spring like.
