Anything Goes ...with a touch of lime green

Anything goes and add a touch of lime green  says Wendy from the design team from Tag Tuesday, and that is exactly what I did for the current challenge .. all a bit of an experiment.

Here is how I created these tags ....
1. Tear up some magazine pages and randomly glue on a base sheet of paper 

2. Measure approximately that a tag size has been covered with torn paper. 

3. Make a paper mask to find the part of the collage which looks best for the tag. 

4. Cover the collaged paper with a stencil ( this is a Tim Holtz stencil) and  dab acrylic paint  on the stencil . Have an old plastic gift card or credit card ready. 

5. Push the paint through the stencil with the card. This does not have to be evenly distributed. 
6. Remove the stencil carefully. I quite like the way the random pattern seems to make the collage more cohesive and it has softened the obvious bits like the number 4 

7. All that is left to do - cut the piece to fit the tag,  punch a hole and add a hanger. 


  1. Fantastic tags! So glad you are back with us again! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Wow, such awesome tags!!! Thanks for the step by step directions on how you created these - I will have to give it a try!

  3. A great way to use small bits of paper and the texture paste gives some lovely texture.
