For these tags, you will need the following:
- Assorted Dew, Diamond and Tear Drops.
- Die Cut trees with twine.
- Pearl paints, water and paintbrush.
- Brown grocery bag cut open and laid flat.
- Treat bags and Art Tags
I had some die cut trees left over from a previous project, so I punched the holes and added the twine.
Using a watercolor brush and my favorite pearl paints (inka gold), I painted away!
So so pretty!
FB group and hope someone finds it. If a finder sends a email, it's posted to the group and the stories remind you why you do Art to begin with. You can read more about Art Abandonment here.
We traveled from Southern CA to Monterey. The first night, I made the tags. We spent all of the next day at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. A wonderful place! But it was packed and hard to leave a bag discreetly. I managed to leave one on a bench outside exhibit, too dark to take a photo.
Later we wandered Cannery Row. I placed one bag inside the basket of someones bike, the perfect spot!
I placed a bag inside a planter and at our table after enjoying fresh clam chowder.
I'm hoping the Holiday gift tags brightened someones day. :)
Thanks for coming by, hoped you liked my post!
