Sailing in Late - Tag Tuesday

Nothing like coming to the party late - the Nautical /Seaside theme for Tag Tuesday has already been up for almost two weeks, and I just got around to making a couple of tags today.  
They both feature postage stamps with images of sailing ships. The first is a stamp from Singapore on a background of crumpled painted tissue paper with some metallic charms. 
The second stamp is an Australian one, on a background of torn paper from an old National Geographic magazine  Some of the pages have been treated with Orange Power Goo Remover, which somehow melts the inks and creates a fusion of colours. 

Please visit the Tag Tuesday blog to see the art work of talented tag artists from around the world.

Aussie Flora Tags

It's Tag Tuesday 's theme of 'Floral' that promoted these drawings . I'm travelling with limited supplies so here are my ink and watercolour sketches . Last year I did a series of these kinds of drawings on some recycled book pages but for these ones, I used some 'reject' Eco- dyed khadi paper for the tag bases.
