When I heard that 11 September was the date for me to nominate a Tag Tuesday theme, I immediately remembered that fateful day in 2001 when the whole world seemed to stop and change with the terrorist attacks in USA. And so my theme is PEACE.
My first tag for peace ( above) is hand drawn with felt tip marker and coloured pencils and depicts some images of peace for me. This tag is inspired by the totem paintings of Sandra Silberzweig, but my tag drawing is not as refined or as detailed as hers. This was just like a children's colouring-in exercise so very calming and peaceful!
The second is simpler - a photo transfer with a stitched paper and white-washed collage foreground on top of a magazine page . An alphabet stamp was used to create the word. I hope you think it looks like a peaceful scene?
And the third is really, really simple. I cut out an image from a magazine advertisement. I wrote the message with pen and ink, and cut out a "peace symbol' to paste onto her sunglasses lens . Literally, a five minute tag!
Today is a day for peace, so hopefully these little tags will inspire you to create something peaceful yourself.... make a tag or card with a message of peace, sketch a drawing, do some stitching, fold an origami crane... or just sit and read, look at the view outside, cook a favourite recipe or just enjoy a cuppa . Peace to all!'
