The themes are really inspiring and a tag is a great (and not too daunting) vehicle for all those techniques and products you want to try out - I'm really going to enjoy this...
This week the them was Table Games - so many possibilities, the hardest part was deciding which to have a go at! In the end I decided on Happy Families, because I love the vintage artwork and the characters would be a great focus for the tag. Here's the first one - Mr Tape the Tailor
The book he's resting on is an old instruction manual which belonged to my Great Grandfather, who was a tailor - I love it. The main image was cut from a print of one of the original designs for the game by John Tenniel (who also did the illustrations for Alice in Wonderland).

Inspired by Tenniel's illustrations, I may have a go at a few more character. Here's one more for now -
Can't wait to start on the next one - the them is "Funfair" wooHOO!
