Tag Art Swap


Vixykins is hosting a tag art swap. There are ten members in the group and the theme is 'Vintage Ladies'. Each member sends 10 tags off and gets 10 different ones back.

For mine, I inked and rubber stamped the base of the tags, then stuck some old dressmaking patterns over the top and painted a thin layer of Gesso to tone the whole thing down. I photocopied some images from the covers of various vintage dressmaking patterns and stuck them down. Finally I machine stitched around the edges and added some scraps of material and lace - and not forgetting a button or two!
