Shelters and Homes

Not such a good start to 2014 - very late submission.... sorry.
Here is my tag for this week ... A home is not a mere transient shelter: its essence lies in the personalities of the people who live in it... I am a bit obsessive at the moment about tea bag papers . This tag is a tea bag paper with images set behind it and then I cut out some "windows" and stitched around them and the outline of the "house". The base is a light canvas and I used gel medium to attach. Then the canvas is glued to a card tag. I like the texture - hope you do, too?

  3. Amazing Wilma!
    Loved reading your step by step process.
    The faces in the windows of who finds shelter in the house is a great idea.
    I love tea bags too.
