Thank you for joining me today so close on the heels of my last "Travel" post. As I am hosting the challenge at Country View Crafts then I have the "follow on" spot!
It was only whilst I was putting this tag together that I realised that our eldest son left home this month, 19 years ago, to join the Merchant Navy. As a young Cadet he travelled all over the world to join his ships and of course there was no mobile phone, text or FaceTime then! We were never too sure where in the world he was!
My tag started with some crackle paste through a stencil and then my favourite technique for getting ink on the tag - wrinkle free distress.
I have collaged, stamped and used rub ons to sum up what I imagine a life travelling the world must be like. Though as a Cadet I am sure Adrian would not agree with me that it was "good" all the time!
A close up so you can see that I have used quite a lot of stamps on the background which don't really show up well at a distance.
This was a piece which evolved quite quickly as I hunted through my stash looking for nautical and travel stamps and elements and consequently I got quite carried away and finished it before taking any photographs!
As ever thank you for joining me today and I hope you find time during the month to join in my challenge at Country View Crafts.
