Journal Tags

Journal Tags

Each of these Journal Tags are just a little smaller than an ATC (2.5x3.5") & have a 3mm border.

They are perfect for:
  • creating an ATC
  • adding to a scrapbook page
  • using on the inside of a card  
  • using on the front of a card
  • an embellishing element on a tag
what else can they be used for??
Send me a comment with your email address & I will send you the A4 size .jpg file by return email
Bye for now

PS Will do some projects to post using the Journal tags

Let's Play with Tags

I thought that I would reverse the embellished doily & make it the embellishment on a tag. I could not decide what colours or pics so I did 2 tags with the same design but different colours.

The first tag was done on a manila tag using Frayed Burlap distress ink with a coordinating colour scheme in ribbons & flower; the open paper flower was Off White & distressed on the edges with the Frayed Burlap. You could also use coffee or tea to dye the rose a deeper colour & then distress the edges to highlight.
Tag #1
The second tag was done with Tattered Rose distress ink with pink ribbons & a pink velvet flower.

Both tags are using an ATC size image from Vintage French Couples #ATC035, small paper doily, words from Vintage Lady Words (new paper), pearls by the metre, flower from Viola posy - soft peach, flower from Open Paper rose - off white, and off white Lace 3.5cm wide. Both tags are using a Pin of Jewel. All of the embellishments, except paper, can be found at the Embellish It! category at http://megsgarden.com

Hope this inspires you - more projects to come
