She Is An Artist: Art Tag Bundle (from Somerset Studio)

Hello
I have a few drafted posts, sharing makes from a wee while ago, such as this project which was submitted to Stampington & Co’s Somerset Studio Art Challenge, Tag You’re It! and subsequently published in their July/August 2017 issue.
I was inspired by stencils and stamps from Red Lead Paperworks, PaperArtsy EEA designed by Kasia Avery and That’s Crafty, to alter a bundle of ordinary shipping tags with the stamps, stencils, Infusions, etc and binding with another shipping tag which forms the cover.Turn the tag bundle over and there is more of the stamping and stencilling, much layering to create a grungy feeling.
For each tag, what I would call the front of the tag, has a That’s Crafty stamp, which I cut into word tiles after stamping.  I like this effect because it brings more emphasis to each word, allowing doodling to be formed around the tiles for definition and allows me to play around with placement, thereby altering the original alignment of the stamped words.

PaperArtsy EEA designed by Kasia Avery, are the most perfect stamps for adding detail and Infusions were the most perfect of media to stain the tags.

Here are some of the tags.
As each tag is quite dark in tone, white paint pen markers were what I needed to add highlights.
Then, flip them over and a stencilled art sentiment from Red Lead is the focal, with stamping forming a border.
Here are some more details of the tags.
Tags were something I began to alter in the early days of my rubber stamping journey so it was very special to have this project and another one, with a nature theme, published in Somerset Studio.
Many Thanks for your visits.
