Such an important day for all our American friends. Happy Fourth of July! I made a little tag in honour of the occasion. Well, its a good excuse to make yet another tag, lol. But my good wishes to you are heartfelt.
And while I was on a break from measuring and weighing and listing etc, I took the opportunity to make this week's Every Inchie Monday and Tag Tuesday challenges.
Every Inchie Monday's theme this week is BORDER. I almost went with a flower border, but then somehow got sidetracked and ended up with tiny borders -
Tag Tuesday's challenge this week was SEASIDE. I am going to be lazy and copy what I wrote on the Tag Tuesday blog.
I had a bit of trouble with this week's challenge, because all the themes for this month revolve around the seaside. I found it quite difficult to decide what to use for this tag and what to save for the others. Until I started going through some postcards I had bought in France a few weeks ago, that is. I found a photograph of these sweet little boys all dressed up in their sailor suits, no doubt ready to hit the French Riviera, lol.
I painted three different areas on a white tag, light brown for the beach, light blues for the sky and darker blues for the sea. Glued on the shell and this puffety stuff I found on the beach after a storm last year, and then created the beach with different shades of Distress Stickles, Scattered Straw and Tarnished Brass. Cut out some small images of shells, and of course the darling boys and glued them on. Printed out the song title of a good old English seaside song ( which I now can't get out of my head, arrgghh ) and drew a few seagulls in the sky.
