The Theme over at Tag Tuesday this week is Mermaids and Water Babies.
I have chosen to base my tag on The Water Babies by Charles Kingsley. Nicecrane Designs has some lovely digi collage sheets of Water Babies that you can purchase and download.
I decided to make my tag from an oblong of cardboard which I then covered with cream canvas. The edges were frayed before gluing and then an assortment of lace, ribbon, beads and threads were added. The digi was resized on my computer and then printed out. I glued this to white card stock and stitched around the edges. The threads that I had taken out from the frayed canvas were then threaded through and the ends left showing.I glued the picture on top of the lace and added a ribbon and button to the top. You can see a closer view here below.
As I have used odds and ends of materials I am also posting this to Pixies Crafty Workshop:
