Welcome friends and visitors! It's Thursday evening which means it's the last Friday of the month across the pond. And that can only mean one thing--Tag Friday at A Vintage Journey! On any month that has a fifth Friday in it, we get to create to our hearts desire on a tag. No special themes or products--just fun. Starting with this Tag Friday, we're offering you a chance to join in the fun. Please see the blog for details.
I decided to make a pair of tags. I had a few gessoed tags on my work table, and I used them to mop up some Oxides that I was working with on another project. I also had my Wallflower paper stash and Botanical Layers out, so I used some torn scraps from the paper stash and fussy cut some of them and the Layers to make my vignettes. I did some stamping in archival ink and a Tim Holtz script stamp on this one.
I stamped this tag with Bo Bunny' script in archival and heat embossed with clear powder.
My teammate and most wonderful friend, Autumn, shared with me how to make a string bundle. Thank you, Autumn!
I used scraps of corrugated cardboard box to give some dimension to the layers. Everything is edged in either Frayed Burlap or Ground Espresso. Well, maybe I forgot to edge everything! I was having too much fun just playing for a change!
A bit of burlap and twine make a nice spring-like topper.
That's it for me! If you haven't already visited A Vintage Journey, please do! You will see a wonderful variety of creativity by my fellow Creative Guides and learn how you can play along with us! And there's still plenty of time to link up your project for our current challenge 'Treasure'.
I shared with these challenges:
Crafter's Castle Challenge #3 ANYTHING GOES/FAVORITE TECHNIQUE Using my inks and paints over gesso.
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper March 2018 Challenge Tim Holtz Wallflower paper.
Simon Says Stamp Monday Inside The Box It's a stretch, but I've used card board box scraps to add dimension to my layers.

Thank you for your visit and kind words! They mean so much to me!
Hugs and Blessings!
