You are invited to share with me the Joy there is in creating Art. I mean the "I can do it" and "it's fun" and "it's beautiful" kind of art, whether it is "museum quality" or not. Here you will find some of what I like to do and, I hope, share some of your joy, too.

Welcome to my blog, Rae Ann.

Rainy Day Tag

Thursdays at My Papercrafting are the Totally Tags and ATC's challenges.  I have to make a rainy day tag for a swap later in the month and I planned on using a PCW digi so this was a perfect fit.

The challenge theme is stitching; faux stitching is added along the top and the bottom edge.  The digi was printed on watercolor paper and colored with distress markers.  I glued that onto a piece of blue cardstock that I edged with a punch (don't remember the brand) and used a piece of ribbon (that my cat's been trying to get) to made a border where the white edge ended.  I often think of tags in terms of bookmarks so I don't make them chunky.  That's why the only 3-D item is the ribbon rose near the top where it could stick out over the top of a book, or out of a pocket in an album.

Visit at My Paper Crafting to see the entries.  There is always a lot of inspiration there.

Have a great day and happy creating.
