Schooldays

Hi everybody!

Hope you are all having a good week.

Our theme this week is school days. As someone who spent many years at school, as a student and later as a teacher, I still have a soft spot for school themes, although I am happy that I don't have to teach any more.

This tryptich tag is one I made some time back, but as it fits the theme so well, I decided to post it again.


The second tag has been made from a piece of my precious Graphics 45 paper, which is very difficult to cut into! I mounted it onto some black card from an old calendar. I replaced the picture the  girl is holding with a little blackboard, after fussy cutting round her litte fingers so it looks like she is holding it. I added the second blackboard paper-clip instead of a band or ribbon. The images on the tag remind me of my own schooldays.


Take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!

Valerie

  6. Both tags are beautiful, but my absolute favorite is the triptych design. The paper doll with all her supplies is perfect. Blessings!

  15. Great tags - the tri fold is just fantastic - yearning for the good old days?

  16. That is a great tri fold tags, so many details. I tried to make my tag this week with G45 paper, but every image I liked overlapped another, so I couldn't get a solid one. You did really well with that.
