Welcome to Tag Friday! A few times a year we have 5 Fridays in a month meaning we get to hold our Anything Goes Tag Friday. It is always popular with the Creative Guides - we do love our tags, and it's always fun to see the different directions we all go in when there's no strict route to follow. Let's take a look at what everyone has created...
I decided to make some Christmas themed tags (I have started early this year!) and make them into Christmas cards - you can find all the details over at Addicted to Art today.
At this time of year when most people's thoughts turn to beautiful autumnal colours - mine turn to Halloween! I was inspired by a card by Richele Christensen... you can see more detail on my BLOG.
I'm getting ahead of myself with a wintry pair of tags... that's what comes of having to create samples for winter word stamp sets in September! Not that I'm complaining - I'm thrilled to have some new quote sets out, and there's one of them involved here. Do come and check out the details over at Words and Pictures.
I simply love the colors of Fall and this tag uses all of my favorites. I could not pass up a chance to use oranges, browns and greens. ENJOY.
I was inspired to depict an end of summer feel on my tag, with withering greens and grasses fading. See more of the process and closeups on my blog, SewPaperPaint.
I was demonstrating PaperArtsy Infusions at the weekend and so have some lovely base tags to play with. I decided to use my favourite Sleight Blue to create this little tag with a fabulous quote from Alison's latest stamp release. If you would like to see more details and in particular how the background developed then please do join me on my blog.
I had fun just enjoying the process of creating this piece, decorating one of Tim Holtz Etcetera Tags. If you would like to see more close up detail and explore this journey further with me, please pop by my BLOG.
September and October find me very busy but I wanted to join in with this Tag Friday line up and managed to get this completed in under the wire (just!) to contribute along side the other fabulous contributions from my very talented teamies. To complete this in almost record time I have limited myself to just a few supplies and a tag background from my bits box. There are a few more photos over at Bumblebees and Butterflies if you find you have a little time to pop over._____________________
Well, there you have it... what a fantastic variety of tags, though you can see that we're all leaving summer behind, by the look of things. I hope that's given you a little burst of inspiration fuel for the last few days of this month's challenge. There's still a week left to join us with an Altered Art project, and we'd love to have your company. Our sponsor this month is Simon Says Stamp and our random winner will receive a $25 gift voucher for their store.
Not only that, but you could be selected as one of our Pinworthy projects and be invited to join us as a Guest Creative Guide... so off you go and get altering! Have a great weekend, everybody.
