IMPORTANT - please remember to leave a comment when you post your art tag on Mr. Linky!
Glad to see that so many people enjoyed using the blue and green colors together last week. Hope you got to see all the lovely tags which were submitted! Some of you mentioned the old rule about green and blue not going together ("Blue and green should not be seen"). Somehow, looking at the sky and grass makes a lie out of such a silly statement! Wonderful to see your work as artists showing that in art, there really aren't any rules!
This week the theme is The Deep - as in the ocean. This is not for the sea shore, but down under the water, so please make your tag about what lurks under the waves, out in The Deep! I promise we will make a tag about the sea shore another time.

The base for my tag was actually a tag I made with rubber stamps and watercolor several months ago, but at that time I did not like where it was going so I put it aside. I was trying to straighten my studio a couple of days ago, when I came across it again and suddenly had a great idea for finishing it. I went over the stamped images with a few markers, added some more water color details, then tore apart a piece of blue origami mesh and glued it in place. Final details include two fish charms and bits of sea shells. The eye on the large fish in the background is a small rhinestone.
Thank you for visiting the other artists - we all appreciate a kind word. And if you'd like to read today's Tuesday story on my other blog, click here...
