signs of the zodiac

hello tag friends.  i was excited by this prompt.  my sign is aquarius, the water bearer, and i wanted to work with my own sign.  i'm on the lunagirl moonbeams design team so i started scouring my collage sheets for women with water vessels.  when i couldn't find anything right away karen at lunagirl hooked me up with a couple images.

this very tag was the first one i made.  i love this beautiful little girl.  i grabbed some designer paper from my stash for the background (notice the cranes in water on the paper), stamped some waves (the aquarius symbol!) with a meer image stamp and placed her on the tag -- after first adding a compass cut from the lunagirl "wind and roses" collage sheet.

for this second tag i covered the tag base with designer paper and then cut out and used an image from an old "antique globes and maps" address book i have stashed -- the map here is called "sky chart."  i cut a planet from the lunagirl "celestial" collage sheet and added this gorgeous lunagirl water-bearing goddess.

as you can see i went hog-wild so to speak and i actually made a third tag.  i discovered that i did have a water bearing image on an old bathing beauties collage sheet from lunagirl that was in my stash and so she became the focus of my third tag.

the background paper is actually designer paper created by karen at lunagirl. i stamped the word "water" with mason row pegz on an additional piece of designer paper and added that.  the sun was carefully cut from the "wind and roses" collage sheet and i added the goddess last.

we aquarians are known for being visionary, artistic souls.  the water we carry is a blessing for the earth,  i hope you've enjoyed this visual voyage through my astrological sign.

enjoy! love to all.  i'll be along to view all your gorgeous your tags later today!
