EDITED TO SAY, WHATS WITH THESE WHITE BACKGROUNDS ON SOME OF THE TEXT??? I CAN'T GET RID OF IT!!! SORRY.
Ok, so I didn't really go in a boat, they make me feel iffy, and I didn't even go on a trip, except for to the supermarket, but it IS very autumnal and I once again needed a post title to combine this week's challenges. The Tag Tuesday challenge this week is " Autumn leaves, acorns and conkers", and the Every Inchie Monday challenge is "Boat".
Tag first. I had intended to go out for a lovely walk and collect autumnal treasures, but it has been pouring down for the last few days, so I gave that one a miss! I did have some acorn cups in my "naturals" box though, and one solitary acorn, and I decided to use those. Instead of real autumn leaves I had to make do with cut out images and I made some felted acorns to keep that lonely real acorn company -
And this is my "BOAT" inchie -
The first thing which came into my mind when I saw BOAT, was spending time with my brothers when we were little, folding hats and boats out of newspaper and floating them on puddles, in the bath, anywhere really where we found some water. I had to go with that, of course, so I took a tiny bit of paper and folded it into an even tinier boat. I coloured the sky and the sea with Promarker pens, and used a little bit of silver and white for the clouds and the foam on the waves.
I really ought to be photographing more stuff for the Etsy shop but it is still raining and so dark, there is no point in even trying. Ah well, perhaps the rain will let up later. Fingers crossed. In the meantime, I'll carry on making more customer tags :-).
