Altered Tag Swap

After I met Lesley Venable at Art Unraveled in August, I joined her ning site, The Art of Altering.  A month or so ago Lesley launched an Altered Tag Swap and I immediately signed up.  I just finished my tags and will be mailing them to Lesley tomorrow. 

I have to admit, that working with glue and paper again was a struggle.  I really prefer fabrics.  I even thought about doing fabric tags.  But, I had all these extra images, papers, and ribbons.  So I decided to use them up to create my tags for the swap.
A Pretty Witch
This is the first one I did.  I did glue papers on the tag but then I stitched around the orange paper.  The netting was glued down as well as the witch and tag.
A Queen for Halloween
I have used this little girl before, but I love her a lot.  So I glued dress pattern paper on the tag, stamped it, then added the image and embellishments.  This tag was fun to do!

Please check out Lesley's The Art of Altering and join.  It costs nothing to join, and I am sure that Lesley will be having other great swaps.  She also offers tutorials and online classes.  Great way to get your art out there as well as learning new techniques or take a class.
