Here's the flip side of the arted up tags. This is what makes them journal tags. "Seamstress For The Band" made me think about my first sewing experiences and how scary it was for me because I was so young and getting graded for it. That's a picture of me that was in the school yearbook that year. LOL! I was a nervous wreck. I don't remember how many times I ripped the seams to that dress. I just remember breathing easy once the damn class was finished. LOL! Click on the picture to read on.
During the late 60s and early 70s I admired hippies. I never saw them as dirty creatures but more as fun-loving peace promoters. LOL! After I designed the tag on the left, I named it "Flower Child." The tag on the right was named "Party Girl" and on the back I wrote about my carefree summers and parties.
Sometimes we need a little nudge on what to journal about. Thankfully, I found a sheet of journal prompts and used one behind my "Flower Child" tag. I wrote about, what else, the 60s! Click on the pic to read and learn more about "moi!"
I knew the minute I saw those huge blank 8 x 4 tags hanging at the stamp store that I'd be using them to journal on. Of course I'd have to add a little art on one side but what? It wasn't long before I began experimenting with painting techniques and embellishing the finished painted tag with an art doll. I've been doing this for two years now and I see no end in sight! I just need more time to create a new batch. And a date to lead another workshop!
