Silhouette Sampler...and Tag Along News


After much thought, I've decided to put Tag Along on hold until Mandy decides whether she wants to take it up again. For one thing, I'm no longer crafting (just a bit of digital), plus the number of participants has dwindled noticeably lately.

I'd like to thank all of you who have kindly hosted/helped me out -  and everyone who has entered the challenges while I've been caretaking. Hopefully we will see Mandy back at the helm some time in the not too distant future.

PS I'm still taking care of Sunday Postcard Art for the rest of the year. The plan is that, for the first couple of months of 2016, I'll co-manage SPA with Mandy (hopefully, I'll have all the hosts in place for January and February) and then bow out.

Crackle Showcase

Many thanks to Alison for brilliant tag, and for choosing the tags in this week's showcase. She's also written why she chose them.
The magical look of this, with the dancer poised on the cracking ice (Swan Lake + The Nutcracker all in one), really captured my heart.  I think it's beautiful.
The distinctive image of the woman works so well against the deep colours of the background, and the crackle really intensifies those colours.
 I love the delicate colours and the fantastic porcelain crackle which makes this look like a piece of antique china - lovely!

Tag #103: Crackle

This week we are joined by the super talented Alison Bomber who has created this beautiful crackle paste tag. If you don't have any paste you could use digital crackle effects or backgrounds and crackle stamps. Or interpret crackle however you want.

Anne's picks for Summer Fair etc and Road Trip

Thanks, once again, to Anne - for choosing the themes and making sample tags throughout June. Here are her picks for this week and last week.



Thursday 25 June 2015

Tag #94 Sunmer Carnival/Fun Fair/Amusement Park

Summer's the time when small towns hold their annual carnival (at least where I live), the fun fair rolls into town and at the seaside the amusement parks are packed. So this week hostess Anne and I would love to see tags that reflect that Summer fun. Here's Anne's vintage tag for inspiration:

I'd like to thank Anne for so generously stepping in and hosting throughout June, inspiring us with her fabulous tags. Kay will be hosting next week, but after that I don't know...

Thursday 18 June 2015

Tag #93 Road Trip

This week we're going on a Road Trip, courtesy, one again, of Anne. Think of Summer holidays (vacations) and days out in the car (or motorbike, camper van...).
