Hello Ladies! Ok here at the details for the July/August tag swap. It will be a little different. We will not have a specific theme! There, I said it. Instead of picking a theme - we will explore who we are as a paper artist. If someone walked up to you and asked you what style of tag art do your prefer, what would you say? Would it be vintage, shabby chic, dimensional, distressed, a mixture of all or something else? Would you use tin, metals, rock candy, stickles or all of them?
I am calling all ladies (well, not all - about 30 or so) to a "my style" tag swap! This should be fun and interesting! The first swap that I hosted (locally) I tried this-everyone enjoyed it. There were so many different styles and techniques done on each of the tags. This is good for newbies and experienced tag makers. Some may teach, some may learn - all will inspire! Plus, it has no boundaries of a theme - so you're free to do whatever makes your heart happy!
