Tattered Romance Tag

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!

I'm so proud of you who made a tag for last week! They were great!

Today, another direction - making a tag that evokes a feeling. Your tag needs to show a long ago romance, with something that hints at sadness, or loneliness, or dreams which died. But not just that - there needs to be a hint of the excitement which was there, so add some color. The romance was once everything, now it's all in tatters - a Tattered Romance!

On my tag I used a base cut from the collage I made on Tyvek, which included the old faded photo, some music and even some tissue stars. I stamped a bit on the left side, added part of an old necklace and small cameo. Then I brushed Gold Leaf around the edges and left it zig zaggy on the bottom.

 I will probably keep the Facebook page and I encourage those of you who use it to post your tag pictures on it. AND I am going to create a Flickr pages just for the tags created on this blog challenge. Stay tuned! (It's been a rough week for me health wise, but I am going to do 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



  1. I do hope you get to feeling better. I will add you to my prayer list.

  2. Sorry to hear that you are not well at all. I hope you will get better real soon.
    When I first saw this week's challenge I thought it would prove quite difficult. Not for too long though, thankfully, ;-).

  3. Hi Rebecca! My first time here and I'm sure I'll be back many times. Tags are such a good thing to create.
    Thanks for the challenge, and be well soon. x

  4. p.s. Sorry Rebecca, forgot to comment on your own tag! I found the technique you've used so interesting and your bits and pieces add a great dimension. Love the old photo you've used too. Very fitting. :)

  5. I've added my link - great theme this week! Hope you feel better soon!!

  6. Just added mine--I actually got one done this week!

  7. I just remembered (old age 101) to link up with your blog and leave a comment. I love your tag. Always so colorful and artsy!!
    I just read your above posting about not being able to continue the challenge. I hope we all can work something out to keep it going. This is a learning challenge for me. I feel like my efforts and all my problems trying new stuff is easier with such a great group of people. My stuff looks like beginner art and every one else looks so polished and artsy. Yet everyone has offered encouragement and very helpful pointers to me. I will miss that more than any of you know. I hope you get to feeling better. I too suffer from chronic pain that pills don't help. I know how dibilitating it can be and how it stiffles the creative spirit. Everything seems to be a trial and huge mountain to climb. No matter how small and insignificant the journey. You will (and have been) in my prayers. Hugs Mary http://marysrosecottage.blogspot.com/2011/10/tag-tuesday-tattered-romance.html
