|Painted and stamped tags.|
|Notice my tiny set of paints in the background these are what I used to paint my tags.|
Yesterday I came a cross a bag of white price tags I had purchased sometime ago. I love the shape of these little tags and the little bits of string they hang from. When I bought them I knew I was going to use them in association with my sketch books. I looked at there clean crisp whiteness yesterday and decided they need to be transformed into a rainbow of colourful tags. I painted the first few on just a piece of white photo copy paper to protect my table. When I took the tags off the paper I liked the over lay of the colours and the stencil shapes of the tags. I then swapped the paper and opened my sketch book at two blank pages. I whiled away the most amazing relaxing afternoon, engrossed in the freedom of creativity and just for those few hours I truly did not have a care in the world. Once several of the tags had dried I felt something was still missing? I remembered I had also bought tiny little flower stamps that where just the right size to stamp on these tags. Out came my stamps and ink pad. However I did not stop with just the little flowers I had a go with other stamps I have and what you see is the end result of my afternoon art work. I will use these tags as embellishment but I intend to buy a slightly large tag which I will also paint, then use to jot down ideas, inspiration and quotes on during my time in college.
