Tiny Tab Tags

Time:  >2 Hours
Yield:  12 - Tiny Tags(total)

  • Ink – Archival Black, Distress; Gathered Twigs
  • Markers – Distress; Aged Mahogany, Barn Door,  Broken China, Fired Brick, Pumice Stone, Shabby Shutters, Spiced Marmalade, Spun Sugar, Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo, Weathered Wood, Worn Lipstick

for colouring the images, I would first swipe the markers
 across the paper and then, blend and/or dilute the 
colours with a wet paint brush  
  

  
I missed taking photos of the spattering 
(Broken China and Vintage Photo ink) over all the images 
- I was lost in the moment - this was very messy, 
and highly satisfying
