I used to make tags all the time. I've always found them to be a wonderful size as a palette . . . large enough to tell a story or express a feeling, with plenty of room to use a variety of creative techniques. Yet still small enough to be manageable and not as intimidating as a big canvas. Tim Holtz fed my obsession with his hugely successful tag series. You can see some of my previous tags by clicking on this link.
There is so much potential for variety of feeling and color. So when I saw a package of large tags with subtle backgrounds recently, I jumped on it. Since I was at a weekend crop with stamping friends, I borrowed a bunch of their face and girl/woman stamps and stamped a single image on a bunch of the tags to create this assortment:
And, today, I pulled out a few of the tags and had a great time creating three very different tags. The grungy, multi-layed "today" tag up top (which channels my "Orphan Black" addiction, I think); the Graphic 45 "Create your own style" tag in the middle; and this happy, springy postage-inspired tag.
The top one is definitely my favorite. What about you? Do you have a favorite in the group? Did you ever create on tags? Are you still doing it?
