The first project included a variety of distressing techniques applied to shipping tags. The twelve tags recieved a variety of treatments: coffee staining, marbling, watercolor...
...and then embellishments. My little tag book took on a music and art theme.
I was able to include stamping, embossing, packing tape transfers, brads, miniature game pieces, sewing, fibers, handmade paper, silk flowers, and a dozen other things. It was tremendous fun and I learned the art of dry brushing, new ways to watercolor, and fearless experimentation.
It was a good way to transition from 2007 to 2008. There are so many things to learn about art--and in the process I suspect I will learn a great deal about myself as well.
