Tag along

Inspired by Leslie Avon Miller's gorgeous tags, I decided to make some too.

I used various colored cardstock to make the tag. Then collaged paper scraps and added streamers. I will give these to the people in the poetry group.

Tags. . . or bookmarks!

This reminds me of my own inspiration to make curtains (the kind that hang from wooden rings and one opens by sliding them across a wooden rod: I love that sound) after having watched THE DESCENDENTS. We never know from whence. . . ;-)

BEAUTIFUL idea! Those Tags - or Bookmarks, as Chris said, are gorgeous! Your Poetry Group will be thrilled to have one!

I am so happy you have dived into the *Deep Side of the Poetry Pool* - you belong there!

Did you enjoy *My Week with Marilyn"? I really liked it.

Miss you....we have to catch up soon!

Love to you and Bibitty,

♥ Robin ♥

What a sweet and beautiful gift to give Suki. I bet your fellow poets all love them very much!

Lucky poetry group!! These are absolutely the middle one!

Mystic Meandering said...

Wonderful creativity, Suki. So unique! I especially like the one with the old black and white photo of the trees, and the old writing. It looks like it has traveled all over the world :) Lovely gift idea... hmmmm.... :)

Cris, Artist in Oregon said...

What a fun project. They would make great book marks too.

there is something delicious about work on tags, these are fun. I especially like the black and red one. yes I was inspired too by Leslie's post but never quite got to making any tags myself. I have always done little gift tags and found them fun, something about that tag format!

and what lovely gifts they will make for your poetry friends and as Chris remarked "bookmarks"

Suki's Snazzytags-!? And yet another fractal arm / 'enterprise' emerges from under the overall ARTIST IN ALL SHE DOES 'umbrella'. Waaaay coooool! <3 S

Lucky people in the poetry group! These are way cool.

suki, i am enthralled by what you do with paper and collage. there is always balance, always a peacefulness in every piece. you are incredibly talented

and a poetry group! i see robin's comment but i think i've missed this news. i'm glad you are writing poems among poets.

it is cold here today. come on, sun!

Wonderful tags, Suki! Leslie always inspires me.

I love your header . . how creative!

I'm wondering where you got that black paper with the little dots in circles, that I see on the 3rd from the left?
I've looked online and the craft stores for that. I'm doing some experimental collage in a journal.

Warm regards . . Jann

Beautiful tags! And so useful. I love art that one can use.

These are gorgeous!
I especially favor the two middle ones, but love them all.

Oh these are lovely. My sister makes tags and I've ordered some blanks to play with too. Yours are very inspiring! Hope your computer troubles are soon over.
