    JANUARY 10-Create a series or set of altered tags.
    Altering tags is great fun. It is a form of mixed media artwork using a tag as your canvas. You take embellishments, elements, word art and more to create a tag to your liking.

    Today, we are going to create a series or collection of tags and display on a scrapbook page. Using the provided tag(see below) at least 4 times for a series or collection of tags. You can change the size, but they must all be the same size. You can use them more than 4 (but not less) if you like. The tag shape must be able to be seen clearly.

    Ideas for things that come in set 4s:
    • Cardinal Directions
    • Classical Elements (Earth, Air, Fire, Water)
    • Deadly Horsemen
    • Ninja Turtles
    • Seasons
    • Suits in a Deck
    • States touching (I did this one)
    • The Four Gospels
    • Years in High School / College
    A huge thank you to Rachel Jefferies for the free tag, to make this challenge possible.
    Please Download the tag Here or click on image:

    3. The tag shape must be able to be seen clearly.

    This post will be used for questions and any clarifications.

    You may clip or attach photos to the tags, but please keep them as a series or related altered tags. It would be in the spirit of the challenge to alter the tags too. Not just clip a photo to the tags, pretty please. ♥

    yes, as long as the tags are related and go together ♥

    edited to add, the challenge is to alter the tags, too, I would so love to see more than just a photo clipped, perhaps a bit more ♥

    So I am brainstorming and one thought I have is to put my kids on the tags (4 kids, 4 tags). Would that be ok? They go together (most of the time- ha ha).
