Summer Holiday


Our best family summer holidays were camping trips in the bush, near the beach - a tent amongst the trees, and short walk to the sand and water. This week's tag tries to recreate the feel of these carefree holidays -  cotton fabric with acrylic paint, coloured pencils, stitching by hand and machine and gesso on cheesecloth, trimmed with a leafy braid. Looking forward to seeing all the summery tags, as we are now in the middle of Winter here in Australia.
Warm wishes, Wilma.

  1. Your tag images a secret bush hideaway perfectly Wilma. I love all the stitching and how you cleverly photographed it with the gum leaves...I can almost smell them.
    I hope you are not too clod where you are...even here in the far north of NSW it is VERY chilly and bleak today!
