The Sea - for Tag Tuesday



For the current challenge "The Sea"  at Tag Tuesday, I made a couple of  painted/ hand drawn tags . These were created from a piece of watercolour paper which had been sprayed with acrylic paint - blue, yellow and quinacridone gold. I then sketched over the top  , trying to follow some pattern created by the splatter and then add some felt tip pen lines  watercolour pencil to highlight the shapes. The tags represent the fantasies of the hidden city of Atlantis and a mermaid. 



With this theme in mind, I also add a free motion stitched  tag I made  earlier this year for 29 Faces -

    1. Thanks Trish - Yes we are quite safe . Lots of rain and it was wild yesterday and today, but seems to be easing a little here. I think further south might have higher winds and seas as well as rain tomorrow.

    1. Thank you Sandra . It was a great theme with so much scope, so I am glad you thought Atlantis fulfilled the brief. I love doing these backgrounds - different colour combinations create totally different moods.
