Yesterday, I sat down at my desk to craft with a total blank mind. I went through my scraps of paper and found a piece of red mottled paper and covered a tag. I then took a script and music stamp and stamped a couple of areas. I then inked a couple of the corners.
Next, I die cut some cogs and then inked them in browns and rust colours. I found an off cut of a paper tape measure and inked it in the same colours. I then stuck them down.
I found part of an old ticket, inked it and stuck it to the left. I die cut a couple of numbers and stamped an hand with a finger pointing. Finally, I used a Tim Holtz paper doll, coloured in his face and the waistcoat with Promarkers and then stuck him down.
For this tag I really struggled as it felt I was totally out of my comfort zone.

This is really beautiful! What do you do with all your finished pieces?ReplyDelete
Sorry for the extremely late reply. I keep my tags in a box, sometimes hooked together with a book ring, so I can flip through them.Delete
