Hello Friends,

I have made some bookmarks/tags to give away in my church library. Here are some of my designs. All but one have been up-cycled from breakfast bars box board.

This first one is a recycled used shipping tag. I painted it black to cover the writing and then splashed on more acrylic paint. a couple of dimensional stickers finished off this design.
My box-board tags were collaged, painted and then embossed. The coffee cup is from an embossing folder. The other images are stickers. My tie is a piece of leather strapping with beads.

I used handmade paper beads on this one.

Gold mica powder, a large flower stamp, Liquid Pearls, die cut leaves, a SU punched bird, store-bought flowers and metallic string with paper beads.

 Thanks for stopping by. I always enjoy your visits and appreciate your comments.

Hugs & smiles,
