    Welcome to the August Hybrid Happenings!

    Our inspiration this month is tags!​

    A great thing about tags is they can be as simple or as complex as you’d like! As mini works of art, they are a great way to play with new color palettes or techniques on a small scale. Tags can also be functional – make some tags for birthday bags or get a head start on labels for Christmas gifts.

    Tags are seen in many, many styles:
    - Paper crafting using shaker dies
    - Scrapbooking as dimensional elements
    - Art journal as an anchor for word art
    - Mixed media as color or texture pops​

    Tags come in many shapes and sizes including circular, rectangular, star, heart, and the traditional “tag” shapes.

    I was greatly inspired by Sannicreates' mini tags + the super bright and fun colors by p4craftstudios (both on Instagram). So, I made my own set using the rectangular tags from the July 2022 MPM Collection, Imagine.

    While I was at it, I made some whimsical mixed media tags, just for the fun of it.
    Note: No special tools required! Just a pair of scissors, pens, and washi tape. To make corners even, use the first cut off corner as a template for the rest.

    I do hope you’ll join me this month in making and showing off the versatility, fun and joy of tag making.

    As a reminder – photos with no digital product are welcome in the forums! Projects with at least 50% TLP product are welcome in the galleries + forums. And don't forget, there is a gallery for Hybrid!

    For a bit more fun and inspiration, keep your eyes on the Monthly Muse :eek. And, if you used tags in a 100% digital layout, you are welcome to share your art here too!

    There is a first time for everything! Tags could mesh well with the organic art you've been creating...you could even paint over them...like having a ghost image.

    I see all these adorable tags. I don't really have a use for them. What kind of things can you use them for besides presents or name tags? I'm very UN creative about Tags. I don't use them much on my digital layouts either.

    You can make them thinner and make cute bookmarks. I made some bigger ones and put cute pictures of my grandkids on them. i also hang some of them on my Christmas tree.
