Vintage tags

Every year I make tags for our church Bazaar. This is for funding kids camps and other activities that will help others in our town. I am a little ahead of the game for making of tags...we have the Bazaar at the end of October. Almost all of our ladies do something for this event. Some bake, others craft...it depends on what their talents are. I will share some of the things I am busy making when they are finished. I took old paper and found a vintage picture of the ladies in hats. Then made the ladies transparent and painted a little color on the them. Added the font and then glued little flowers where I would use a hole punch in the middle of each flower and then add ribbon for tying. Bazaar time finds us all knee deep in getting ready, craft nights and noddle making for the traditional chicken soup. Busy, Busy! So I am the tag maker and craft er. I stay away from the cooking....these ladies know what to do through passing down of generations.

These tags are WONDERFUL Mary!!!! And so many too! I wanted to tell you where to find the Matte Gel Medium by Liquitex at Michael's. You have to go to the artist's section where there are canvases, and paints in the tubes. Well, down on the shelves near the floor there are all these different things to add to the acrylic paints. Some say GLOSS and the one I want you to get is Matte Gel. But your store truly may not carry it but I'm sure you could find it online but I wanted you to be able to use a coupon!!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, xxoo, Dawn
