Tag Tuesday- Purple.


I have had problems all week with Blogger, luckily my son was able to sort it our for me late Monday night.
With purple as this weeks theme, I knew I wanted to use the poem 'When I am an old lady I shall wear purple' as my inspiration.  I drew, painted and coloured my old lady.  I made her glasses from card and used the window from an envelope for the lenses.  All other embellishments from my stash.
On the reverse, I printed typed and printed out the first verse of the poem.  As the white was so stark, I used ink pads to add colour.

Great idea, but I am never going to a red or purple hatter! I will definitely carry on being young at heart.
