Tag Tuesday - Travel

This week at Tag Tuesday it's travel and you can really go anywhere with this lol. I thought I would go for the obvious I suppose and make some travel luggage tags, I think they are so sweet!

I chose some yummy co-ordinations card stock (love this stuff) and I cut them in the shape of my lovely little suitcase (you know the ones with the long handle that you pull out) Any way I thought they would make fabby luggage tags (not literally as they are a bit flimsy) But you could make real ones with some yummy string couldn't you? Then you would know your luggage, maybe even crochet a belt for your suitcase as well. Anyway I digress, inside I put some lovely papers of some wonderful places far away that you could dream of visiting. I hope you pop along and see what all the other talented DT team have been up to, I am sure they can inspire not just for tags but any crafty project you are making. Dxx

Tag Tuesday - The Roaring 1920s

Now I love bit of the 1920s very much Art Decor *swoon* and I was going to do something like that, buildings porcline or even jewels but then I remembered a wonderful recent film that went back to the 1920s in style 'THE ARTIST' a silent movie but in the modern day and I was so taken with the poster for this film I thought I would give it a go. So here are my efforts, I hope you like this tag/bookmark done for the wonderful Tag Tuesday I do hope you get a chance to see all the beautiful tags with this theme and become inspired enough to make one of your very own. Dxx

I used watercolour paper 140lb and sketched the outline I would need by hand with a light HB pencil, then I painted with black watercolour and didn't add much water just straight from the tube with a little water to make it move. I wanted a truly black shadow like the poster. I was very pleased with the out come I hope you like it Dxx

Tag Tuesday - Italy

I am back for my third time for  Tag Tuesday. I still can't get over the fact that I am a DT member with all these fantastic people who inspire us all.  And this week we are all off to ITALY. I have never been to any part of Italy. I have often imagined going though as I think it would be truly an amazing place to visit. From the country Tuscan hills with their rustic food and vineyards to visit, to the city of Rome and the history  & art they have there for all to see. Then maybe off to Venice  for a ride on a gondola and wear a mask maybe?  Where on earth do you start for this tag? The food? The colours of the flag? A map of the country? Some of the amazing Landmarks? What a vast choice we have this week :) And It was fun to think about just some the wonderful things about Italy.

I have been spraying inks again as well as doodling, love getting my white pen out lol. The I got some Italian themed stamps out and used some distress inks to stamp with. I took a photo from google and chopped it up ( amazing pastry's for Italy) added some ribbon and that's about it. I hope this inspires you to have a play around with a tag and the theme of Italy this week Dxx
