Tag Book & Tags


I folded an A4 file folder into 4 and then folded one of the longer ends to make the pockets and put some grunge paste through some stencils.


And then again on the other side.


I painted them with fresco paints.  Added TH images with black stazon and covered the pockets with patterned paper which I picked up in Michaels on my holiday.


I used Dina Wakley images to decorate the tags.  The backgrounds were coloured with distress inks and I used a white posca pen to hi-light various parts on each tag.


And this is my finished book complete with tags.

I made this as Out of a Hat Creations are asking to see our tag books this week, with or without tags!!

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
