Travel

Hi Everyone - it's Tuesday again & time for us all to show our Tags with the current weeks theme, which is 'Travel' this time around. I had a vague idea what I was going to do for this as soon as I saw it in the list Carolyn posted, but I still only got around to finishing it today ;)
Our six year old, who is autistic, is obsessed with buses mainly, but also trains, and their respective timetables; so we do lots of traveling. Not going too far, using public transport or our bikes, but we go out a lot, and prticularly during school holidays. He gets transport to school and much to his delight it is on a mini-bus :D
I usually keep my tags on display for a few days & then store them away in a box, but this weeks one is already up in a certain little boys bedroom, having been claimed once he realised what I was doing, haha.
I apologise that I didn't get around to commenting on all your tags last week, (first time ever mind you), but I did see them all and was mightily impressed & inspired. Thank you to those who commented on my own.
Now, without more of 'Twinkles Twaddle', here is my tag for this week. You can click on it for a larger view.

First of all I stuck an old map book page onto some sturdy packing card then I sprayed it. I used vehicle stencils that I coloured with sprays & neocolor 2s. (The blue bus was stenciled onto separate card and then cut out).I made the bicycle out of shrink plastic which I had intended putting a hole in it to use it with my tie, but I forgot so I stuck it down instead. The traffic lights are a stencil and I used some sequin waste on the back ground too. I added a bus ticket that we actually got yesterday but as it dried the ink disappeared which is why I stamped Stage coach back onto the piece of paper that I'd ripped from another ticket *sigh* 
I added some text words printed on my wee machine & my tie is one of those keyring chains.
Thanks for looking, and visiting you all is my 'to-do' for this evening.
Stay well, be happy & I hope to see you all here again next week :0) *hugs* Mo xx

  8. A fabulous tag, I love shrink plastic as well. You will have to make your little boy a series of bus tags. I'm sure he would love one with a red bus on.

  11. Do you know Wendy, I hadn't even thought of that, I think you're right, he would like that. My friend Lynn Holland sent him some postcards of vintage buses, I bet I could incorporate them into giant tags to go with this one. Thanks for the inspiration :0)
