Mardi Gras Tags

Hi friends!  Today I’m sharing with you some Mardi Gras inspired tags.  I thought I should change it up a little bit from all the hearts and Valentine’s art.  This year Fat Tuesday falls on February 17th, and if you’ve ever been to New Orleans during Mardi Gras, you know how colorful it can be.  I tried to capture those colors in these tags that can be used for presents, book markers or simply collecting.

Christmas Tags

Time is going by so fast and Christmas is just 3 weeks away!  When I think of it that way, I have to admit that I get a little bit of anxiety!  But, I want to make sure I take the time to make the Holidays as special and personal as I can for my family.  My family is use to getting handmade and personal gifts from me every year.  This year I will be adding another way of personalizing by making gift tags that they can keep beyond Christmas day.  These tags can be used as book markers, tree ornaments, or kept as mementos.

Working on Tags Today #WOYWW

On my work table today I have some #8 tags that I’m creating with some Tim Holtz Mini Distress Inks, stencils and Americana Acrylic Paints.

I’ve been watching a lot of his tutorials on layering with stencils, paint and ink.  He makes it look so easy!  But, I’m happy with how these are looking so far.With each order I ship I send one of these tags as a little something extra.  They can be used as gift tags, book markers or for art journaling.

Thanks so much for visiting on this #WOYWW (What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday).
