Tag Book


I wanted to play with my new Sara Naumann stamps by PaperArsty.


So decided to make a tag book.  I cut 4 tags to different sizes.


This is the full sized #8 one for the back.


I used distress paints through stencils, and brayered on distress stains.


Added various colours of distress inks and more PA stamps from the minis and LB range.


Idea-ology reinforcements and flicks of white Dylusions were added.


And finally I made a piece for the front with a mini tag attached to it.


And this is the tag book put together. You may or may not of noticed that the front piece is now the other way round. I messed up when I was punching the holes!!

PanPastelsUK have an anything goes theme this week.

This looks great, Sam - we'll get you working in a journal yet, with these stamps! I wouldn't have noticed the front tag had changed orientation, lol at that!

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.
