Decay

Hello Taggers. Hope you have had a great week and that you haven't got awful weather where you live.

This week the theme made me think for a while for sure but always interesting to do a bit of thinking I feel.


For my tag I went round our soggy garden and found two leaves from last years perenial sweet peas. I brought them in and dried them then sprayed them with a firm hold hairspray to made them less fragile. I made a 'grave' background with dark colours and sprayed on water to add effect. Pleased to say that the leaves are still in tact and the tag is ready to hang on the wall with all of the others.

Have a lovely week and thank you for the wonderful comments each week
