WOYWW – Tag Art – From Drab To Fab

Thank You Tag

Happy WOYWW, dear friends!

This week, while digging through those infamous plastic bags my cats love to gnaw on, I came across a bright yellow tag. While yellow isn’t a color that I gravitate towards by nature, I immediatelybegan thinking of what to do with that tag!

The only thing I knew for sure was that I wanted to incorporate splashes of red into it, so, I started perusing through the Art Challenge blogs for a little inspiration.

One blog in particular, Use It Tuesday, has a fun challenge running this week called “You Can’t Touch This!” where you are tasked with breaking into that craft supply you love SO much you haven’t been using it!

Well, I’ve been collecting a lot of pretty Washi tapes lately, so I decided to incorporate a few into the design – along with some pretty red fibers and floral brads. The stamped sentiment fits Pink By Design’s Thank You Challenge theme.

Sweet Stampin challenged me to keep the design Clean and Simple, but I still managed to show my love of collage and all things shabby with a little distress ink and the pretty collage Washi tape I chose!

You’ll find the complete list of Art Challenges at the end of this post!

    Oh that’s me Ramona..loads of tape and no will to use it. I mean, what if it runs out!! I like the tag, yellow is a colour I long to use but rarely do, despite it being one of my favourites – so cheerful!

    Love the tag! Unlike you, yellow would be a color I love to work with 🙂 I need to get some colored tags. I only have boring white ones 😉

      I think someone must have sent this to me because I know I didn’t purchase it (I used to belong to several trading groups so I frequently uncover “surprises” when I dig through my stash!)

      The nice thing about the white ones are that you can ink them up however you like!

      I do have some color ones I purchased awhile back that I need to find. While I was working on this tag, I was thinking maybe it would be fun to work through the colors in the upcoming months!

  12. A beautiful tag!! Love the colors.
    Thanks for joining the TTCRD challenges!

    Hi Joy
    What a great job you did on the tag, funny how things get put away and we forget about them and then when we see them again we can’t wait to work on them.
    Love the red against the yellow that really works well
    I hope you have a great day today and enjoy WOYWW.

    Happy birthday to Legend! Love the little tag – we need a bit of sunshine in our lives – we have snow on the hills today! x Jo

  15. Mary Anne says:

    I can’t believe how many challenges you made that one tag work for! I don;t think I have ever put something up for more than ONE challenge! I am in awe of your organizational skills (to keep track of so many challenges) and how you made one thing work for so many. Well done!

    Happy WOYWW!

    What a cute tag! While breaking into my stash this week for ATC supplies, I found a handful of tags! Some are blank, some have things on them already that could do with some embellishing…think I’ll set them out for contemplation! 😉 Thanks for sharing your workspace and LOVE the link of art challenges though how will I ever do them ALL??? LOL …. Debbie #111

    Whilst I love your tag, it’s the other thing that’s on your desk that’s really caught my eye this week.

    I’m not too fond of yellow either but your tag is brilliant – teaming it with red has transformed it and I love the design. Happy birthday wishes to Legend … he’s looking terrific for his age 🙂 Hope you have a great week. Elizabeth x #36
