a great excuse for more tags!

Back in June I had a wonderful time at the  Manchester School of Art degree show.    One of the displays from the foundation art degree area featured a collection of tags at the top of the board and it's something I've been wanting to do since.  I love the layers of different sized tags.


My initial idea was to hang them on a metal mannequin but I don't own one, and the idea never got off the ground.  But up in my new craft room the other day I realised I could hang tags around the room on nails, just like in the photograph!  Tags here I come :)


I love how quickly a tag comes together, especially if you use bits n pieces you've made and not used for other projects.  Now a tag a day I could manage!!!  Minxy's been doing some gorgeous tags daily, take a look here.  And of course the current StampMan challenge is all about tags too, and Jennie's on a roll with them over at The Artistic Stamper.


These silver foil embossed stars were going on pegs, to make fridge magnets, but I have more ideas than time so...
