I am in a great group on Facebook called the Studio run by April Cole. She has challenges every month. This month the Collage Society is making tags. They are a great way to get into doing collage. They are small so are pretty quick to whip up. After making these I realized that we are making 4 different ones with 4 themes throughout the month. We are going to make little books out of the tags. I think that sounds like fun.
For this swap the tags had to use words or letters in some way.
I used a base of collaged words on each tag, I used old book pages and music pages.
Then I added Faber - Castell gelatos for some color. I just slapped sever colors on and blended them with my fingers.
Then I added paper scraps and a focal image.
And lastly I added embellishments like doodles, ribbons and buttons.
Have you seen these at Michaels? It looks like Sharpie is making more of these pens again. These are smaller and I really love them. They are extra fine so perfect for writing and lettering on journal pages. They are water-based. So far I have seen this pack and a metallic one. I searched all over the net for other colors but had no success. I hope them come out with more colors soon.
