TAG #3..

 Hello everyone,

Well, that was a scary night shaking and rocking and rolling, swaying to and fro, going up and down,but all is well now, tsunami warning had been lifted and thank you so much for the beautiful early morning txt's and messages when I woke this morning..thank you...

Back with my last tag #3 for Tag Tuesday for their Steampunk theme..

My last tag post I ended up with this picture...

                                                                     so used it to make this..

And it all started with placing my cogs onto the sheet that I sprayed/coloured the other cogs..

Glued them all down..

Smooshed texture paste in the gaps with my fingers, [that was sticky fun..]

While that was drying I cut out my penny farthing and added two nuts on the wheels..

Cut tags from papers and inked around the edges and added twine through the top eyelet..

Then did this to the background..UGH!!..then forgot to take how to fix pictures as I panicked..

Placed my tags once I could breathe again and the penny farthing onto my tag..

You can see the background was no longer that funny colour..I added more grey to it..

Then played with some more bees...

And added lots of tiny micro beads onto this fellow..

And onto the desk, floor, my shoes, those little suckers go for miles if you're not careful..

Added my quote...

A close up of the top with the cogs..and more micro beads.

The quotes.." Be authentic, sometimes you have to take chances" 

A close up of the Bee..

And my finished tag..

So there we go, thank you so much for stopping by, and as always leaving your lovely comments, really appreciate each and every one..

Must have been a very scary night for you Chrissy. Sounds like a strong one. We were in Greece, many years ago, when we had one there. I just said to my hubby, did the earth move for him?!! Just a short one.
Another brilliant tag and love the penny farthing bike. A gorgeous design.
Have a lovely, peaceful weekend. Big hugs, Carol S.xxxx
