Hello Spring! Tag Swap...done!

The Art Swap Sisters at Red Lead Paperworks are at it again...there's always a fun swap going on in that group.  You can sign up to join the Yahoo group here.  The latest swap is Hello Spring! tags...and since Spring has teased us a few times, but Old Man Winter isn't moving out yet...I needed some spring relief from the frigid cold we cannot seem to escape.
Tags are a fun way to make small collages & use some fun embellishments...like Easter Grass from last year's basket.  The little eggs in the nest above are simply plastic speckled eggs that I had leftover from a fatbook page years ago...and I dyed them up using some Ranger Alcohol Inks.  That cute little chickie was a little goodie from when I ordered some paper posies awhile back...and it's great to find a use for it.
My last tag above is way more embellished than my usual style...but it works...the ribbon roses were a gift from my previous swap with Sandy in A Swap for All Seasons...thanks for those, Sandy!  The filigree butterfly is another Red Lead beauty.

And last but not least...the bows are my own hand dyed ribbons...I just can't get enough of those!  I'll be listing more to my Etsy shop today or tomorrow.

There's still time to join in the fun of this swap...join the Red Lead Yahoo group & sign up...tags are due before April 25, 2011. Each person who plays will also get this adorable little Buttercup Bunny stamp...a Red Lead exclusive image.

Until next time...be creative & make time for some art every day!


  1. I really love these tags! I hope I get one!

  2. Thanks, Helene...I hope you get one, too...and that I get one of yours. I love your style.
