As Dotty's tea house is still closed for now and I am not selling my cards I have enjoyed making some new tags over the last few months. Lots of people keep asking the reason for my making tags. So I thought I would write a post and share some photos. My answer is that they are perfect for techniques. Also I do not keep any of the cards I make. They are either made as samples for design team posts, made for family and friends, designs for publication or sold at Dotty's. I would not know what to do with lots of cards or have the space to store them.
Here is one of my set of tags from Lockdown.
Also if ever I am stuck for an idea I look through them and it often fires off a spark of inspiration. I store them on book rings.
When closed together they are really small to store.
I write on the back the details of how I made it and the products used.
Recently I bought a felt letter board for my studio to display my Speckled egg distress ink pin badge.
I took a photo of it with one of my tags I made using all my new speckled egg products and planned to take the tag down and just keep the badges on there as I collect them.
However I rather liked the idea of being able to display a few of my tags in my studio.
I liked the board so much that I bought a second one, this time a rectangular one.
I can keep the square one for my badges and new distress colours as they are released. I can now use the rectangular one to display a few tags and can change them at a whim, including any words, as they come with lots of letters, emojis and phrases.
So my challenge project today is another of my tags. You may have seen this around in social media land but I have not blogged it.
with some close ups
I used all distress products including the new glazes, such fun!
