Hosting an altered tag swop on a new forum that I've just joined. It's the one that belongs to my local craft shop, PaperParadise.
The web addy is in the links section if you want to check it out, or even sign up and join in
I still have to attach the fibres but apart from that it's finished. There was no set theme or size for the tag, been as it is the very first forum tag swap
What do you think?

Has anyone tried DIPTYCH with ATC's??
A diptych is an object with two flat plates attached at a hinge
Obviously these are not attached at the hinge as they will not fit into the 3 x 3 pockets that we all store our ATC's in
They were great fun to do though. I sort of cheated for this one because I cut each piece of card 5" x 3.5"
Top: I created the background paper then stamped the Hampton Art Queen Tag across the card, raised the face using another piece of card and put some eyelets in for the tag holes. Then I cut the piece of card in half and ended up with 2 x ATC size works of art
Bottom: I created the background for this one using the tape transfer technique, using masking tape. Added a couple of pictures (little angels smoking and drinking) a piece of ribbon and a couple of eyelets, again I cut the card in half to get my 2 ATC's
Just be aware of where you put your eyelets and embellishments and you'll be well away with this one. It was quite nice to work with something a little bigger than ATC size
Yes I know all about FAT PAGES, but apparently they become addictive to, therefore I refuse to make even ONE!!!!!!

The leaves on the one's on the top row are acetate with re-inker splodged onto them and then covered over with tissue paper to soak up the excess ink, the tissue paper was left on until they had dried. For the background on the bottom left, I have used some of the soaked up tissue paper
I belong to various craft forums and readliy host challenges and swaps. The lastest is an altered cd swap. Funny how I came up with this one really. I was starring down at my scrap paper, decided to rip and tear it all, then stick it randomly on the back and front of the cd
This is my contribution - you decide if it works!!!
