Art Tags and Calendar Journal

I went from a postcard craze to a tag craze.

For no particular reason, just for fun.

I had a postcard with Color Burst watercolor on it that I cut in half then die cut tags from.

There is a die cut on it, misc. ephemera, washi tape and stamping.


Die cut flower, washi tapes, stenciling, white acrylic paint and ephemera words and small talk word sticker.


This tag is a modpodge of stamping, ephemera, die cuts and washi tape.  The back doesn’t match the front colorwise but no matter.  It isn’t important in the scheme of play.


A very quick and easy patriotic tag with inks, stencils and washi tape.


Half the year is over already.

June was full of fun with the exception of a reaction to the vaccine.  I read a few books, had lots of art time and a chance to spend a couple of days with friends.

I’ve had a fun time developing my own writing style with brush pens.  Sometimes it’s a challenge to choose a word to brush letter that will fit in the day square.  I’ve used a Tombow dual tip pen for writing.
