A tag challenge

Today's challenge on 12 Months in View was to recycle tags and bits and pieces.

I rummaged in the little desk tidy thingy that I have where I put offcuts and painted things I don't like or don't know what to do with and pulled out a few things and put them with the tags I had cut off some new clothes.

I decided I would use the tag in the middle and when I turned it over there was lots of inkiness on it.  So I picked out the leftover doily, a bit of map, the ribbon from the tags and a bit of book page.

I inked the large tag with Distress Ink and stuck the doily on.    I stuck some of the book page on the small tag and then a bit of the map.  I tore the edge of map and inked it with black Distress ink.

I stamped birds onto the small tag and a quote onto the large one.   I glued the small tag to the larger tag and found some hearts that Art from the Heart use on the packages they send me.   I tied the ribbons on.

 I haven't worked out yet how I am going to put it into my journal.  I'll let you  know what I decide.

Thanks for stopping by.
