I have just posted my tag over at Tag Tuesday. This weeks theme is 'Rock Pools and Beach Finds.
As my total collection of beach finds are a couple of pebbles from Cornwall I struggled some what to come up with an idea for this weeks tag. In the end I went for quite a simple one using black and white images of shells that I found thanks to The Graphic Fairy.
The tag was painted first with gesso and then white acrylic paint. The images were adhered to the tag using Gel Medium. I then finished off around the edges and the shells with black oil pastel. After posting the tag and looking at it again I think I should have used more shell images and overlapped them. But to be honest I'm just glad to have got it done.
Here is last weeks tag which I didn't get around to posting here. The theme was 'Sea Birds'.
I started buy colouring the tag with Broken China Distress Ink and did a gel medium transfer of an image of a seagull which I took myself and stamped the words 'echo's of a sea bird' to compliment the faded image of the bird. I then added a layer of gesso to give it a weathered look.
Those of you who remember my post about the textile picture entitled 'Flowers' will know that I put it in a small exhibition of work from a textile class I go to. Last year I was lucky enough to sell a piece of work but I was not so fortunate this year and my little picture has now come home safe and sound.
I want to say thanks for the lovely comments I have had, they mean a lot.
Bye for now x
