Its a great way to use up all those bits of paper you have hiding in your stash.. yes admit it.. we all have it! I used some paper as well as some elements from the Tim Holtz Ephemera pack.. these are great for collage along with Remnant rubs, along with a whole lot of distress! This tag is basically me in a nut shell.. Grungy, vintage, collaged yumminess!!
So remember to Believe in your Journey, have fun and enjoy!!
Thank so much for stopping by to visit today.. I hope I’ve inspired you a little bit to have a play and spend a little time layering and modge poding!

This week we have a surprise guest – Karen Knight. Karen makes some amazing unique tags and was happy to do one especially for us to share on our blog. Make sure you check out Karens own blog and have a look at all the other lovely creations on there. She is a very clever girl. Karen says “I have been creating for about the last 13 years. I love all things collage, inky and stamps and enjoy creating mostly on smaller spaces – like tags.”
This week Karen has designed this gorgeous tag using collage and distressing techniques and one of our Suzi Blu stamps called Forgetmenot.
“I started off by collaging a tag with book pages. Then I randomly painted over the top with distress crackle paint. While I waited for the paint to dry I then stamped the Suzi Blu Girl image on another piece of book paper, and roughly coloured her using distress markers. I also tore two wing type shapes from book paper and coloured them with distress stain. When everything was dry I adhered them to the tag, inked the edges using my distress markers. I used walnut stain distress and black soot distress marker around the edges, by swiping if along the edge and rubbing it with my finger to smudge them both together. I also smudged the black soot marker in the same way around my stamped image and wings.”
