Art Tags

I am not normally a tag maker.  I love to look at them but the tag as a blank canvas does not usually spark creativity in me.  Since I've been playing with the Tim Holtz dies I have found new inspiration.  So much inspiration that I created a class of 4 art tags.

Bo Bunny Scrap Pink Finalist

If you remember this layout from a few weeks ago...


I was a finalist in their contest. I didn't win, the layout that won was really awesome. Felicia at Felicia's Scrapbooks and Fran entered and they were finalists too.

Fall Flowers

I love autumn. I love November. In Texas it's a mix of warm days and cool nights with the occasional wet and cold day. It has taken me a long time to adjust to fall in Texas, the changes are not as dramatic but the trade off is the days are still warm enough to get out and about.

I have some autumn flowers to share with you. Making flowers has become quite the phase for me. On the plus side I'm giving my Tattered Florals die from Felicia's Scrapbooks quite a work out.

I call these peonies. Or maybe cabbage roses?
