Tag 28 was done on a chunky cardboard hangtag that came with something my husband bought. I rescued it from the trash. I can't remember what the item was but I liked the word "authentic" and kept it visible. I used some old music, black and white hand made papers and a piece of a French document.

Seeing Red

Two tag collages this week, inspired by the color red.
The first tag has Asian flair, using handmade and vintage papers and a tiger matchbox cover.

For the second tag, I colored the tag with a red ink pad and then layered different red papers and a rubber stamped image from Latvia.

New Tag Collages

This week, I thought I would do some colorful tags because it's spring. And since it's Easter sunday, I used colors that reminded me of Easter eggs. I colored the tags with rubber stamp pads. It gave a rather nice texture in the back. I collaged with mostly hand made papers but I included a vintage revenue stamp on the yellow tag.

Collage Tag Challenge - number 21

I did another piece using a vintage German luggage tag. This one incorporates vintage French documents and a page from a vintage book.

Collage Tag Challenge

I purchased some 1940's German paper luggage tags from Etsy shop Betty Was A Bombshell and one is the base for this tag. It's got an unusual shape at the top and is a nice kraft paper. I used some numbers from a bingo game, a Chinese ticket and another coffee filter.

Collage Tag Challenge

I did 4 new tags, all using my little coffee filters. The filters get really nice patterns from the coffee (they smell good too!) and the transparency is nice for layering.
