Tag Friday for A Vintage Journey

 Hello friends, - it's the last Friday of the month and that means that when it's a month with 5 Fridays, like this one, we have a Tag Friday over at A Vintage Journey.

Well, tags are always fun to make and as I was making a tag to add to a journal anyway, I decided to play along.

I started by creating the leave that I wanted to use as the focal point for my tag. On some strong card I played around with my Distress Inks and Sprays until I had more or less the colour I wanted, and then I cut and embossed the leave with one of Tim Holtz's 3D Embosslets (at least I think that's what they are called).
Next I glued a couple of old book pages together to give them some strength, cut out a tag shape and then zig zagged around it with my sewing machine.
The final steps were to add some scraps of paper and other collage elements that were flying around my desk, including the leave of course and then I just inked around the edges and that was it. I'll leave you with some more photos and if you would like to get some further tag inspiration, do head over to A Vintage Journey
to see the fabulous tags my teamies have created.

Thanks for your visit, stay safe and happy crafting!

WOUW that´s awesome, and I agree, it´s sooo fun to make tags, and I always make them whenever I´m trying ou a new technique of some kind, as it´s much easier. Yours look amazing as always from your hands, and thanks for sharing here.
Have a wonderful week-end ahead everyone and stay safe outthere.

what a gorgeous fall leaf front and center on your vintage design Astrid. What great stitching your sewing machine does around an edge - Mine always gets caught up! A lovely collage of ephemera on your tag!

That's such a lovely leaf, with just the right touch of melancholy about it - and it looks right at home on your vintage neutrals with the bold black stitching framing it all. Lovely that you could join in with Tag Friday too.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
