Playing Tag Tuesday from afar again. I know, it’s Wednesday. But if you look at the rules on the TT blog, it says you can post all week up until the next Tuesday. Blah blah, excuses, yada yada.

Anyway, here’s what happened when I ruminated on “kings and queens.”


 2The crown is stamped linen affixed to a vintage book page background. I trimmed the bottom in a scrap from an old crocheted doily and topped it with some shiny things. Wrapped a little soft-ish twine near the bottom for extra textural interest and—VOILÀ—a royal tag.

After finishing this little guy I had to laugh. Upon closer inspection of the actual words on the vintage book page, I noticed it was all this fuss about bleeding and Lucifer and—well, that is totally an accident. But I kind of like that it’s weirdly unpleasant. Give my little monochromatic creation an edge…or something.

Be sure to visit the Tag Tuesday blog for more tag loveliness.
