I've been working on Christmas tags this week. Honestly, I think I'll do a tag journal in the new year. I just love this format.
These 3" X 6" tags are cut from watercolor paper (love the texture and the way it accepts paint and adhesive). I used only hand painted papers, paint (watercolor and acrylic) and ink. I've been concentrating on doing more of my own lettering. If you have a book or e-course to suggest that would help me develop my lettering skills, please leave a comment about it. I think that would be a fun focus for the new year.
The ties are cut from strips of recycled sari silk. I buy it in skeins that contain every color of silk you can imagine. I'll post a picture of a skein sometime. Each one is unique and very lovely.
I can't show you my favorite one just yet since I want its recipient to be surprised. It will soon be on its way to a new friend as part of a tag swap sponsored by Kirstin McCulloch of LilliBean Designs. Sign-up for the swap is already closed but I'll let you know if she organizes another in the future! Kirstin creates the most wonderful canvases with beautiful faces and messages. I hope you'll pop over to her blog and check out her lovely work.
It's shaping up to be a busy weekend here...lots of errands and Christmas-y activities. I hope you have something fun planned, too. Enjoy!
