Heritage : Tag Tuesday


Today, 18 April is World Heritage Day and today, on Tag Tuesday , I am the featured designer , Naturally , I chose the theme Heritage .  Hope you will join us and create an art tag and put your own link on the Tag Tuesday site. If you don't want to make a tag, just go to the link and have a look at the tags others create - each fortnight, there are lots of new ideas!
My first tag uses a torn section of one of my photos of a temple dancer carving in the World Heritage complex of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. The background is so far removed from that - it is waxed and painted 'butcher's paper' but I like the aged look it has.
 The second tag is very simple - a manipulated photo ( again from Angkor Wat) transformed into a line drawing for the background. The panels pasted over the top are strips from a magazine page. And the gold blob is my attempt to gild one of the visible statues.

A couple  of years ago, I also made a 'family heritage ' tag so thought it should also be included in this line up. Yes, that is a baby photo of me on a photocopy of my birth registry document with a few embellishments. Today is a good day to acknowledge the diversity of cultural heritage and the vulnerability of  heritage sites worldwide.
