This week over at Tag Tuesday the prompt is Australia. I decided to do a little research since I had this great female image that I wanted to use. I know they have a lot of big ranches in Australia, actually they call them "stations" not ranches. There are women trainees who work on a sheep or cattle station in order to gain practical experience in the skills needed to become an owner, overseer, or manager, they are called Jillaroo, (a Jackaroo is the male equivalent).
The word originated in Queensland, Australia in the 19th century and is still in use in Australia and New Zealand in the 21st century. Its origins are unclear, although it is firmly rooted in Australian English, Australian culture and in the traditions of the Australian Stockmen.
I used these fab images from Gecko Galz called Yee Haw
I embossed the tag with a Spellbinders folder reminiscent of a ladies leather purse, used some Distress ink, Stickles, ribbon and a flower from my stash, then added the snake for a little extra excitement. I am still new at making tags so I am working hard to be comfortable with how I lay them out. I hope you take a look at all the lovely tags at Tag Tuesday and see what the other artists came up with for the Australian prompt. Well that's it, thanks for looking. ~Diane
