Tag Tuesday -- Heritage

On Tag Tuesday Wilma has chosen Heritage as her theme for the next fortnight.
I have made a very large tag which I used texture paste on for the background, with some Paperartsy infusions on top of the texture paste, which I then sprayed with water.
The smaller tags are of my relations, who all grew up in the valleys of South Wales. My mum's dad pictured on the top with my Nan and my mum's two older sisters.  The one below shows him on a camel ( the middle one) in Egypt ( Pyramid and Sphinx behind them) during the first World War. He also fought at Gallipoli.  He was as was my other Grandfather a miner.
The smaller of the two added tags is of my Great Grandparents with a backdrop of a mine and below the little town where my father was born and where my Grandma lived.
My brother and I used to love going up the mountain behind Grandma's house as the mountains were actually moving in as they were all undermined with coal mines. We were fascinated by the fact that the houses on the mountain were gradually being knocked down by the mountain as it moved slowly towards them.
