' Z ' is for Zons

Hi Ladies and Gentleman!
It was so nice last week to see so many people joining in, so I really hope that this trend will continue now that we have new players and new themes starting next week.
 Today we have reached the last letter, 'Z' in our alpha tags. I think we can all give ourselves and each other a pat on the back for sticking through to the end! And I think we all had fun making them, and I am astonished every time over the variety of tags we all make.

For my 'Z' word I have chosen Zons, a little town near here, right next to the Rhine, dating back to the 7th century, and full of quaint little streets and houses, old towers, and dominated by the stone walls which still surround the town.
In my tag I have mixed reality and fantasy. The right side is an old photo of the 'Krötschen' Tower (number 3 on the plan), which I fussy cat, and placed on a painted and stamped background. I added some bunting, left over from the last tag,  and that was it. It is a pretty little place, and well worth a visit if ever you are over here.

This is a collage of pictures I took when I was there some time back with a friend. That isn't me in the photos, I was on the other side of the camera!


Have a good week, take care, and thanks for looking!

  14. Brilliant tag - so clever how you've mixed the different techniques to create the real/fantastic background and the colourful bunting looks so cool against the grey tones - just love it!
