Journaling Tag Exchange

There are a group of friends I have that love ART.

We recently decided to have a Journaling Tag Exchange for fun. Just to get out of our comfort zone and spread the  Joy of Art.

This is the tag I sent to my friend  Nancy Crissinger.

Mainly it's Dylusions Sprays, Stencils and some Perfect Pearls Mists.

But this is how it started out. It's just the left-overs from my Little Sunshine piece after I sprayed the daylights out of my flowers. (See previous post for colors and sprays)

All this wonderful spray was half dried and some still wet on my craft sheet.

So I misted water on all of it and dragged 3 tags through it.

I was amazed at the amount of color I got from the left-overs!

The Perfect Pearls REALLY added some wonderful color. This is a night shot since it's very hard to show metallic colors in daylight.


Anyway, the next thing is to add some Tissue Tape and Stamps and ....on and on with pens and more ink!

Every time you tip the tag a different direction, you get a different metallic shimmer taking over the background.

That's what the Perfect Pearls do to the tag.


This is the Fantastic tag I got from Susan Kesselman!

I LOVE it. So many layers of colors and stamps!

Out of the box and into the fun arena of Tag Journaling!

Be Well and have a great day!

I'm off to Prairie Art Stamps tomorrow for a class. Only 2 seats left if you want to come and play!
