Here is my tag for this weeks theme for TAG TUESDAY - Books.
Two books inspired this tag. Firstly, my tag takes the form of a book called a Ledger, a book binding technique found in  'Making Handmade Books' by Alisa Golden.
The 'tag cover' was inspired by my favourite book at the moment, 'Mixed Media explorations' by Beryl Taylor Each of her pieces are  made up of lots of little projects and I just can't stop picking it up and looking at all the different techniques.
For the background I coloured some book text with brusho and on top of that is a layer of torn wallpaper. The heart is made from fabric paper, a technique I learned from Beryl's book.

Underneath the heart are two strips of paper painted with pearlesant paints and the squares are again made from  fabric paper with sequins and seed beads

The pages are  painted with water colour paints and left blank for notes or sketches.
I think  that this is my favourite tag so far and I would love to hear your comments.
Tomorrow I will be back to post those pic's I have promised in my last posts.
Bye for now xx
