Altered Bread Tag, Mini Tags. Bread tags, recycled card, gifted embellishments, beads, wool.
"Tree" theme. Recycled greeting cards, sewing pattern paper, magazine image (for back ground) arcylic paint (I used the end of a felt tip to make the ring marks.)
"Pockets and Tags" theme. Recycled greeting cards, magazine images, sticker backing from a book of stamps (you know the stuff left behind when you peel off the stamps and you're left with little 'windows'...even they have a use! lol.)
A group called "Decorative Envies" that I belong to also does monthly postcard swaps. Last months theme (which I just made yesterday! opps!) was "Trees" and Pockets and Tags.
I recently hosted an 'altered bread tag' swap on my yahoo group "alternative artists" and we had to use a bread tag as an embellishement. The idea is not original, a friend of mine sent me some she had altered and I thought it was such a great idea that we should do it on the group (with her permisson!) If the card board looks similar to those on the postcards it's because I used the scrap from the postcards! The original card was found at a 2nd hand shop for 20c! How's that for good milage? lol.
Thanks Andrea for leaving me Sweet Irene's address. I am waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay behind on my tour of the globe!
