Tags







These tags were really fun to make. The two on the end are collages with a little bit of lettering and the middle one is acrylic and stamps and a little bit of lettering. The nib doesn't do as well on this surface. The tags are pretty flimsy so I pasted two together. I like making these and maybe I will cut out some tag shapes like this with some watercolor paper and do some little originals. Sewing on them is fun too.

Hi Martha! I love the butterfly tag! I just got back from Reddi-Arts. Finally got to see your pieces that are there. I love the one entitled "Angels Unaware".

So beautiful. I own bunch of blank tags & have done nothing with them. You turn them into precious treasured keepsakes!

Martha these are awesome. What a wonderful way to use up scraps. I like the butterfly and the one with the added color tied onto the tag. I think the words look great. Fun gift tags or book marks...

When you are here on the 23rd, we can cut some shapes on my accucut machine,ie, birds, tags, shrines,etc. What do you think? I have lots of dies to choose from & bring some of your favorite paper or choose some of what I have here. Can't wait to play.

Oh Martha!! Your tag art is so beautiful and so are your "snippets" I just enjoy seeing what you are creating every day on your blog!!You are such an inspiration in many ways and I know I keep saying that but it's just so true!!
Thank you for sharing your art and faith with us...It's still such a miracle to me that I found you online after finding one of your scripture cards in the bread at Walmart at Albany, GA...GOD is so incredibly GOOD....and HE is the master of creative and beautiful surprises!!
