Fish

Hi Everyone!
We are in the middle of a heat wave in the UK, and it is very hot here in Berkshire. I am really pleased to see the sunshine after such a long wait!
Fish is an appropriate theme for the summer, as it made me think of the ocean.


For my tag I used images of fish from The Graphics Fairy and coloured them in. I put them into an ocean to swim, which is made out of cut strips of Gelli prints. I am finding it an interesting challenge to use the Gelli plate for my tags and to see what I can make with them.
Last week's Roaring 20s tags were all fab! Such a great theme, Carolyn. It made me want to go back in time to the 20s to drink cocktails and dance the Charleston in a Flapper dress!
Thanks for your kind comments on my tag, I do appreciate feedback.
If you want to find out about Gelli printing you can see what I have been doing with it on my blog here
Now I am going to make a cup of coffee and look at your tags! Can't wait!
