Surely not another 'face ' after the 29 Faces September Art Challenge? Yes, I enjoyed drawing faces so much last month, I have transferred faces to my contributions to Tag Tuesday. This week's theme was Beads, Buttons and Bows. After thinking about the very old song, "Buttons and Bows" , I made the tag (pictured above) using a painted and stencilled background, and wrote the song lyrics on the tag after I drew the face with a felt tipped marker and coloured pencils. The other tags for this month will all somehow have a face included. October's other themes are Torn and Tattered, Shoes,Autumn and Haloween .
Tag Tuesday is an online group blog challenge. There is a theme each week, and each week, each participant posts his/her tag inspired by the designated theme. For the first 26 weeks the alphabet was the theme and I stitched 26 tags depicting Australian plants A-Z. Then we changed back to weekly themes.
For Tags 27-30, I used the underlying theme of famous artists, although the official themes were Italy, The Roaring Twenties, Fish, and Travel. So my tags were subtitled Mona Pisa, Picasso Jazz, Botticelli Bream and Dalicopter.
