Tag Tuesday is a wonderful 'community' where people create tag art to a given theme, using any medium or technique of their choice. Sounds like heaven to me!!
I'm joining at the end of a long running alphabet challenge and I've chosen the letter Z for my tag and the word Zip. I thought that was appropriate given my previous life as a Textiles Teacher! I'm sure lots of others will go down this same route and why not?! Here's my tag:
|I've gone for a contemporary look for my tag by using one of my gelli plate prints in a fun way.|
|I wanted to use a real zip and found that by working with grunge paper as a base, I could sew the layers together and achieve a level of 'drape' that normal card would not give.|
|Each side of the top tag layer was folded open and secured to complete the look of the zipped opening.|
|The turquoise paint was added through a stencil onto the gelli plate print for extra interest.|
Once again, thanks for having a look at my work, it's much appreciated.
