The History Boys...and a very late Tag Tuesday!

The theme for Tag Tuesday this week was "Sea Birds". Great, I thought ..I have some photos of gulls taken on a cross-channel ferry.
Background was prepared using some pages from an old French/English dictionary picked up in a charity shop  (well, I wasn't going to cut up any of mine!) and gesso. A title was cut from an old children's book, nautical ribbon was found in stash......only one problem, the photos had been lost from my laptop when it had its' "breakdown" last year.


Happily, on Thursday afternoon in Bristol, we saw some gulls eating abandoned ice cream...DH did the honours and I finished the tag last night....they obviously prefer ice cream to the insects and seeds they're supposed to find on land!




And now for the first of the graduation LOs.
I couldn't resist using the play/film title ...




Papers are by 7 Gypsies, flowers by Prima, butterflies by Petaloo, leaves from a bead shop, frame by Nestabilities, TH token and title cut using Sizzix "Man, Oh Man" dies.


More will follow.....in fact I'm thinking of making a mini album about the day.
