So, based on my above statement, I didn't get into my closet last night to have fun, so I will share another Throw Back Thursday! My girls don't have to go to school tomorrow, so you know what that means....NO HOMEWORK, NO STUDYING....FUN IN THE ART CLOSET!!
What do you do with all the tags that you just randomly make? Or how do you store them? I love tags, they are by far my favorite thing to play around with. I just put all my tags on little binder rings. They are perfect for that, cheap and you can simply just hang them on a hook. Voila! They are usually for my own perusal, but I have, in a pinch, flipped through them for a quick gift for someone by just adding embellishments.
I was flipping through my rings and found this one that I really liked. Can't say that I recall everything I actually did to this tag, but I am quite sure it was done using mostly acrylic paints on the background and through some stencils. I loved the balloon that I had gotten as a free online digital somewhere and stamped a ruler stamp, that I think is a Tim Holtz stamp (it's been so long) and then used the sentiment stamp with ColorBox ink and clear embossing powder. Not a whole lot going on here, but just fun to do and fun to look at as you dream about boarding that balloon and going who knows where?
How do you store your tags? In a book? On a hook? Do you keep most of the tags for yourself or do you do them for the intent of gift giving or selling in a small shop somewhere? A lot of the tags I do are just as random fun for myself, but I also do certain tags with the intent to give as gifts! Those are the rewarding ones for me because I know the people I give them to will appreciate them and use them in some fun way.
I hope you have a blessed Thursday evening, whether it's random fun for yourself or whether you are working on what will sure to be a blessing for someone else!
