Forgotten Friday 32- More Tags


Hi Folks, it's Friday again, and that means time to rummage through your forgotten stash again, and try to make something with your neglected items. Sorry I missed last week, but as you know, I was away on holiday.

This week, I have made two more tags for the Tag canvas that I was working on two weeks ago, and it is starting to fill up nicely now. The first one was made using Distress Inks to create background colour, then a homemade glimmer spritz, using water and Perfect Pearls. This is so quick, and cheaper than buying custom made pearly sprays. I then stamped a large floral stamp onto the tag. A text daisy, a button and some ribbon completed the tag.
The second tag was made using Distress Inks again, I'm using lots of colours in this project that I might not use regularly these days, so they really qualify for this post. I'm also digging out neglected stamps, and some were used on this second tag particularly. The design was built up using lots of smaller stamps. Two smaller tags were covered in text pages, and coloured with Distress Inks too, then attached to form a closure around the front of the tag.
Here are my tags laid out on the canvas:

I am hoping to get the rest done this week, as they are smaller and simpler than the tags that I have already made.

We are off to see my lovely Daughter this afternoon, as it is her Birthday tomorrow. We are spending the weekend with her and her Boyfriend. I can't blog her card until tomorrow, as she looks at my Blog! Have a great weekend whatever you are up to, and if you feel like making something with your forgotten crafty items, please leave a comment, and I'll pop along to your Blog to take a look. Thanks for stopping by, xx
