Mixed Media Tags

I greatly admire the mixed media work I see in publications like Somerset Studio. I have been trying to figure out how to get my work to look casually elegant, and incorporate calligraphy, aging techniques, vintage photos and torn bits of lace. It is waaaay harder than it looks. But at least it is therapeutic to try. This weekend all I managed to do was prepare some backgrounds for future tags with bits of painted tyvek, old maps and dried teabags.

Right now, I'm working on music themed tags for Roses On My Table. I can't decide whether to go soft and romantic or bring out my inner rocker chick. I am also puttering with ideas for Fabulous Fakes for my Arts in the Cards ATC group.

I like them all, especially the maps - I've been wanting to try that for ages -- art using maps as background. Love the tag with map background.... you've inspired me once again!
