TAGS AND BOOKMARKS


I am excited to be a guest co-host for the Inspiration Avenue Challenge  theme this week with Shelly from Pics by Shel . As you may have guessed, the theme is TAGS & BOOKMARKS! Anyone who has browsed my Etsy Shop knows that book tags are just one of my favorite things to make. You may have seen some of these book tags in the September/October 2012 Edition of Somerset Studio Magazine.

                             THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE


 Book tags/ bookmarks are incredibly fun and easy to make, not to mention they are perfect for a variety of uses. They make great gift tags!  While searching for samples of book tags online and on Etsy, I was so  impressed and amazed by the creative way that tags were being used. I also found  many new techniques that I am dying to try my hand at making new tags in 2013.



                              This one is for YOU, Diane! 
                                                     XO


              YOU ARE A STAR IN THE EYES OF SOMEONE

 BE BRAVE . . .  YOU ARE MORE THAN YOU REALIZE



                                YOU ARE UNIQUE AND ONE OF A KIND

                               
                                           YOUR LIFE


                                             INSPIRED

 
                                           LOVE WIDE


                               SING YOUR OWN SONG




                                   TAG!  YOU ARE UP!

If you have never tried your hand at making tags or bookmarks, I hope this theme by SHEL at Inspiration Avenue has inspired you to try your hand at a tag or two! Many of the blogs from these artists have tutorials on the techniques that they used to make them. Tags and bookmarks are a great way to experiment and to make a little tag of  your art to share with someone or add tag art to your Inspiration Board.

HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR IN 2013

                              STAY INSPIRED & GET YOUR TAG ON ~ :)

  6. I hope you buy a box to put all your beautiful tags in. They are so special. I love the one with the crown. "Always wear your invisible crown" - I just saw this saying on a friend's blog.
