You guessed it, it is that time of the week yet again, I got my Every Inchie Monday and Tag Tuesday challenges ready.
The prompt for our inchies this week was FANTASY, so I took a sneaky photograph of the little fairy girl at the bottom of my garden, while she was perched on a toadstool, watching a beetle race so intently that she didn't notice me....... yeah, right ;-). You believe that, don't you? Psst, dont tell, but what I really did was ink the background with three different greens and cut out a tiny toadstool. Then I cut out a tiny little girl, coloured her by hand, gave her a pair of wings and sat her on the toadstool -
The theme on Tag Tuesday was FISH. I took a small portion of a lovely underwater castle desktop image and used that for my background. I had a multi hued snipped of dyed scrim which I used, together with a few real seashells, a sweet little charm, a bit of lace ( gotta have lace, lol ), and of course lots of lovely fishies. They are, after all, the mermaids' playmates, and thus very important creatures in the mermaid castle hierarchy -
I am melting in mid 30 C temperatures! On the plus side, the veggies are doing great in all this sunshine, but we do have to water a lot. Might have to start going down to the lake and filling up our stash of 5l water bottles soon, as our well is dependent on rain water filtering through, it doesn't have a source. We have been eating freshly picked veggies from the garden almost every day, and they taste sooooooooooooooo good!
I have been busy busy busy photographing, packaging, weighing lots of lovely new brocante finds. If you fancy a look, I have posted pics of them on my vintageland blog. There will be lots more over the next few days, I have a huge backlog of stuff.
For now though, toodlepip, and have a wonderful day, xxx
