Summer Tag Swap

summer scrapbook tag

I know that I usually post about quilling projects, but I wanted to indulge in some of my other interests for a moment. This is a picture of a Summer Tag Swap that I participated in. This was for one of the groups I belong to. The only guideline is that it had to be a Summer Theme.

I hand cut the tag, I cut a rectangle and then shaped the top into a rounded triangle type shape and punched a single hole in the top. I then punched 3 additional holes along the left hand side near the top.

I picked 2 ribbons that coordinated in shades of blue and green (I thought they reminded me of a beach-y summer color). For the top hole I took a strip of both ribbons and tied them, and along the side I alternated the ribbons.

The bird was inspired by some stamps that I saw and just that 60's or 70's look in general. I sketched out a bird shape and created a template and then traced it out on patterned paper. I use the ink-to-paper method and inked the outline of the bird in this beautiful Tsukineko glimmer stamp pad. You cannot see it in the paper, but it has this glistening appearance.

Then I took my beach theme further and created a torn beach and waves look by tearing shades of green and sand. The sand also has an added glimmer with a gold and bronze mix.

The epoxy stickers are from Michael's - I thought the shells added a nice touch and the "Enjoying Life" should be everyone's mantra for the summer months - lol.

Finally, the bird was attached with a pop dot for added dimension.

The weather here is distinctly rainy and getting cold, so I thought this would warm us up and give us a bit of sunshine.
