Altered Art Tags



Here are a selection of my Altered Art Tags. I have created tons of these and they are always really popular with my clients. They make great decorative hang tags to display around the home, or you could jazz up a wrapped gift by adding one of my special tags, they also make great keepsakes!


If you hadn't noticed already, you certainly will have by now.... I adore working with vintage nudes, and my tag art is no exception. These beauties are enhanced by adding butterfly wings to really "pretty" them up. I like to "perch" the little ladies on top of the tags or inside the centre as if they are balancing delicately on the tag itself.



Trimming is also very important with my Art Tags, thick, feathery trim adds a real sumptuous feel to each piece.
In the Tag shown above "In The Land Where Poppies Bloom", the wings for this little lady were printed onto velvet paper to give a feathery feel to them, this was a pretty special tag and is one of my favourites.


My corset ladies tag above, is a favourite style of mine, I use this look on Greetings Cards as well as Hen Night Invitations, it is very popular.



I have lots more to show but don't want to over do it in this one post so I will save some more for a future post. Hope you've enjoyed them! And please, if you would like a special tag produced please don't hesitate to contact me.

I'll say it again. You are such a talent. I think tags like these are so pretty, but what do you do with them? Are they for gifts?
