Tag Tuesday - May 15

Hello to any lovers of tag art popping in to visit.

I found a fab challenge at Tag Tuesday where each week you can make a tag according to the theme for that week.  If you love a challenge and love making tags this is a great place to visit so follow the link ........ after you have had a peek at my effort of course!!

It is a popular challenge so I am an 'also playing along member' at the moment!!  So long as I can play too that's fine by me....  This weeks theme is gardening and I picked Land Girls as the inspiration for my tag as you can see.

I couldn't decide what image I wanted to use on my tag so I picked one and then used the others to make little cards that I popped into a pocket.  I used acrylic paint to transfer my image to my tag which is always a great way to get an aged look going on.  I decoupaged my Land Girl and even fussy cut around the prongs of her pitch fork without cutting them off!

I used glossy accents on the Womens' Land Army badge to use it as a cool little embellishment on my tag pocket.  Then looking for more charm or embellishments to adorn my tag I decided to make paper veg!  I have written a quick tutorial as I had fun making my carrots and cauliflowers and wanted to share - I wonder if this counts as two of my 'five a day"? :-)

So thank you for popping in to visit and thanks to Carolyn and Tag Tuesday for the Challenge.  It was interesting to read about the efforts of women during the war years.  It must have been a wonderful feeling to know you were supporting the men of the country off fighting the war.  Have a look at some of the great images of the Womens' Land Army out there on the internet - farmers never looked so glamorous!!
