Tag Tuesday-America

The subject for this week's Tag Tuesday
is America
 I made a quick tag this week.
This image from the Graphics Fairy seems perfect

I mounted it on this lovely stars and stripes
fabric which I bought in Joanne's last time
I was in the States.
Happy Thanksgiving to all you American readers!

silhouetted against the skyline.

 I made two Circles tags, using gesso for the
background and printing with a selection of
jars and lids from my jam jar stash. I thought
the gesso would be thicker and stand out in relief
more, but I couldn't thicken it, so it is not as 
3 D as I would like. I added salt crystals for extra
