Aloha bloggers,

Today I'm taking you to Hawaii.

Image from The Graphics Fairy, promarkers to colour; Hero Arts Antique Engravings; Versafine Vintage Sepia; Distress Stains; TH Vintage Market Die; Stampendous Mica Fragments (bronze and pearl); some stickles and a piece of knitting yarn.

I'd like to enter my tag into the following challenges:

The Craft Barn - Embossing and Mica
Unruly PaperArts RAQ1 - Beautiful Beach
Out of a Hat Creations - Summertime
Artful Times Challenge - Oh I do like to Be Beside The Seaside

Now ladies and gents, turn up the volume, wiggle those hips and enjoy!

Thanks for coming to visit,

Suze xx

Terrific tag Suze and certainly summery for sure. Thanks for the Elvis as well-brightened up a very cold and wet day.

Thank you for sharing Summertime with us at Out of a Hat

Love Chrissie xxxxx

The mica fragments are fabulous on the beach! I need my sunglasses to look at that bright yarn!! (obviously sunglasses are buried deep in chest of drawers. Not like I'm going to need them any time soon!)

Well it doesn't get any more beach than Hawaii, now, does it?? So fun, Suze--thank you for joining in the Reader's Art Quest at Unruly Paper Arts!

Aloha!! Wonderful take on this weeks theme Suze. Fantastic tag. So unique. Thank you so much for sharing your project and ideas with the Hatters.

Suze - your Aloha tag is stunning - I had almost forgotten what Summer looks like! Love the glorious colours and the inking.

Thanks so much for sharing the Elvis video - it's great! He really was the BEST wasn't he - I fell in love with him in my early teens!
Hugs, Sylvia xx

You will just have to stop making me wigggle my hips as it is not a pretty sight what with Jayne Russel and now Elvis the pelvis , love your music choices shame about the terrible tag though ( just joking ) what I want to know is what paper do you lot of colourerers in use when using markers so the image doesn't bleed all over the place. Seriously Suze this is fabulous and love fuchsia yarn is amazing really sets off this gorgeous image.

Such fun Suze! Love all the shells and the mica flakes!
I was brought up on Elvis as my Mum adored him so your video was a blast from the past for me! Makes my entry for the Craft Barn look tame - haven't linked it yet as not sure it's me - if you know what I mean!!
Thanks for cheering me up!

Diane said...

Wonderful tag, the edging is the perfect finishing touch...very clever.
And thanks for Elvis, that was a nice touch!!!! Something to make us smile.

Hi Suze, Fabby Hawaiian tag, love those vibrant shades and it's brilliant to wiggle the hips to Elvis:0) You can't keep still whilst that's playing, feel a little warmer now LOL Thanks Gay xxx
