I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Bird Tag

Hi all!

I am trying to catch up on my tags for the 52 Tags in 2012 Challenge over at Pause Dream Enjoy. You can check out the challenge here.

This is week 6's tag. The theme is to make a tag with your favorite animal on it. I chose a bird, as I have always enjoyed bird watching.

The bird is printed from my Imagine machine, using Lori's Garden. I just received this cartridge and I just love all the soft colors and images of birds and butterflies.

I cut the image in layers, but I left out one of the layers for the swing. It was very delicate and I wasn't sure how I was going to layer that. Believe me, the scrolls on the bottom of the swing are thin enough, and are not even attached to the lower layer.

I dry brushed some Scrapbook Colors Paint by Making Memories, color: Shopping Bag, onto the base of the tag. I then stamped a swirl design over it in brown. The frame and tag were cut from Elegant Edges.

I don't have anything fancy on the back side of this tag, just my journaling about bird watching.

I have a few more tags to make to catch up to the current week's challenge, which is week 10! Boy its amazing how fast one can get behind with just a few weeks of downtime.

Well off to make more tags! :)

Thanks for visiting today.

Have a Great and Crafty Day!
