Tag Time

Hello there, Horace back with you to show you my new purchases from Papermaze craft shop in Otley
A huge brown paper bag...

Oooh, looks good

Let's empty the bag and see what we bought

Wow, What a lovely lot of stash, glimmer mists, a Crafter's companion Mask, and two distress inks. Also shown is a bag of luggage labels which were bought previously, but which will fit in perfectly with my recent purchases...
Tag art, Horace style..
Take your glimmer mists, inks and mask... Oh, and lots of scrap paper to cover your desk, this is going to be messy!

Line up your glimmer mists

Take out a couple of tags and you're ready to play.

First, ink your tags with the distress inks, then choose a colour of glimmer mist, and spray through your mask, onto your tag

Take away the mask, and dab at the tag to remove the excess mist


Build up the mists by using different colours and spray randomly over your tags

Now choosesome art work. Furry paws do not produce good artwork, but I searched the Internet for art deco images, and printed out these

Use some stazon ink to stamp random patterns onto the tags, once all your mist and ink has dried

Here are the tags with distress ink, mists and a stamped pattern on top

Goodness, this is all rather tiring, a little nap is advisable in the middle of your project.

After your nap. Choose some more background stamps, here are some our lovely friend Florence bought us from Ppaermaze

One you've finished your stamping, clean the stamps off with a wet wipe, and dry with kitchen towel

Now, add your chosen artwork to your tags. Here are mine

I might use these in our art journal which we started recently.
