Can you tell me where June went? Half way through the year already and I don't feel like I have had a summer at all! I send my thoughts to all the poor folk deluged out a few days ago, what freak weather that was. Here as usual at the end of the month are my tags from the here, first put into my large sketch book and then one at a time for your perusal!!
My book is getting quite nice and chunky now!
The first week we were challenged to do something for the Jubilee,
So I found a street party image from the Coronation and then one from the daily paper of a rainless party from the weekend jubilations. Then I added dates, a made red rose to which I added rain drops to mark the weather! The second week was 'Camping'.
I took an image of Glastonbury the year it poured with rain and my second daughter went and had a most wonderful time! I added the stamped wellies and decoupaged the right book with sticky pads and then stamped out our favourite words we say before going on holiday! The third week was the colour Green.
I decided to make a green man and placed him on an embossed wood tag and added punched leaves and acrylic buttons. I made the head by sticking my painting onto clearly for art, heating it and then moulding it out to give the tag dimension. The last weeks challenge was Tales of the Riverbank.
I sprayed the background with my new Dylusions inks that I am having such fun with. Then I double stamped the specimen jar on blue painted card and acrylic and made the fishing net with a kebab stick, some tulle and a piece of rusty wire. then I stamped grasses on the front and onto acrylic to give more dimension. Memories of childhood days fishing for tiddlers in the river, such lovely days!
I'm still not sure whether I should be posting this again on my personal blog, but I rather like to see the months work all together, so I hope it isn't boring.
It is deluging down here, I hope you are all dry and not too warm! Have a lovely weekend one and all.
