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 . And, if you used tags in a 100% digital layout, you are welcome to share your art here too!
