Tag Tuesday - School Days and Letter Z Skinny

The weather has been so very nice after the suffocating days of early August. I have been able to keep my studio window open and it's lovely hearing the sounds of the birds at the feeder below, and the wind whispering softly through the trees. The tea olive bushes are in bloom and the scent is heavenly. Mmmmmm!

The theme for today's tag at Kard Krazy is School Days.

I cut a tag out of an old report card from my stash (no, it isn't mine!) and then added a vintage boy paperdoll, also from my stash, with a small copy of a primer page, and a tiny "Big Chief" tablet (it actually has pages in it!). At the top is an ABC book charm with red and white ribbon. I think it all came together pretty well. I, for one, am glad I am not in school nor have children young enough to be in school!

Over at Swap-bot, the last of the Alphabet Skinnys is up-the letter Z. 

The Zigzag Boy

I found this poem in an old children's poetry book, and tore it out and then put it atop a torn page from the Z section of a dictionary. The title is on a Grungeboard piece dyed with alcohol inks and attached with brads. I added some gold ink, and a bit of gold leaf crumbs to the letter Z, which he looks like he is carrying. I guess we can all identify with the Zigzag boy! I hate to see this swap series ending, it was a lot of fun.

So, it's Boy's Day on the blog!

  6. I love Your School tag. Some of your elements reminded me of a stash I should of thought about... I went for a little different look on my tag than usual. More like a mini scrapbook layout. You can take a peek at http://scrappingwithsherry1/blogspot.com/
