TagTuesday - Flower Pot!


New Players- IMPORTANT - please remember to leave a comment when you post your art tag on Mr. Linky! It sends me an email that alerts me you have posted a tag!

What a great time of year to do the Moon tags- we had such a bright full Harvest Moon this week! Thank you all!



Today the challenge is to make a tag with a Flower Pot as the focus - now don't panic! You can draw one, or draw and cut one out to make it out of something else (like I did) and when you have your FlowerPot - put whatever you would like into the pot - flowers, loaves of bread, fish, lightbulbs, think outside the pot...er, box!                 Stretch a bit!

For my tag I pulled out some old wallpaper sample books I had in my stash. I found one sample which had a leather like texture, and then I cut out leaves from another sample. I altered them with stamps, inks, Gold Leaf and Micron Pens. The background is the a page from an old book, altered with background stamps and ink and distress inks along the outside. Nice zigzag ribbon and gems finish it off. 

I know you can come up with even a better idea! 


REMINDER: I created a Facebook page for Tag Tuesday. I will admit right away that I am not sure exactly what I am doing, but here is the link. I would love for you to "like" the page and share it with your artist friends. I think you can upload your photos to the wall page. Anyway, we can try it out and see if it goes places! We need more people to "LIKE" the page up at the top of the page! And then post on it!

Thank you for visiting the other artists - we all appreciate a kind word (me too!). And if you want to read my Tuesday Story on my other blog, click here: A Rabbit In The Garden

HAVE FUN!

  7. Hi Rebecca! Gosh, I don't know how I got so sidetracked, but it's good to join in again! My tag is a very simple one this time around, but I like to think it's unique in the way I'm using it on the junque journal page I'm putting together!... Love your tag, and hope to join in again next week! Thank you for hosting! ~tina

  13. Hang on to your facebook page. Mine was slow starting but when I started linking with some other crafting facebook pages, mine started growing. While I play a couple of the games I am drifting away from them. I get to talk to my favorite authors (of romance novels) which really cool too!!
