Mixed Media Collage Tags

More "class work" from my Paint, Paper, Paste E-Workshop.  This time we did tags - very fun, on a nice, doable small scale.  Yes, you just saw this little Paper Whimsy girl.... but I printed out the entire sheet, and she was on my desk, looking at me..... :).  Had fun collaging some metallic gold tissue paper that I had stamped text onto, some pretty spring-colored acrylics, a Tim swirl stamp, and some ribbon and lace.  The "Day Dream" is from Rogue Redhead Designs.  A little stitching on my sewing machine was thrown in for good measure.
Another tag, nature-themed this time, using a lot of the same stuff that was on my desk for the first one.  Added some patterned tape from 7 Gypsies and some Copic-colored flowers.  Just messin' around, havin' fun.

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend!  Ours started with hail and thunderstorms so strong I thought they were going to blow down the trees around us!  But now it's sunny and a little too tropical. :)  Keep it crafty!

These look super and must have been fun to make. I would have loved to do that E Workshop as well, but only just found it through your blog that I follow now.
Keep up the great work.
