Tag - You're it!

Swap Tags
I very rarely participate in swaps - but this one was intriguing - and only 3 tags to create.  The dual theme was, of course, Valentine's Day and February is a month for focus on healthy hearts as well.  I just went to town on these 3 and had a lot of fun doing so!  Did a lot of layers in the background.  Wrote some words as well - some got covered up and some are showing.  I doodled and added white dots with a Sharpie paint pen and used some stencils.  On one I stamped with bottle caps of different sizes.  I made 4 of the aluminum foil flowers that Christy Tomlinson taught us in Life Book 2013.  I used Tim Holtz tissue tape on cardstock to make the hearts.  Then I got a little wild with the embellishments - crystals, an old NY subway token, some metal findings from various sources, star beads - and a bunch of otheres.  Put an eyelet through the top and added a silk bow.  I didn't get a lot of other art "stuff" done last week - so this is my entry for Paint Party Friday (HERE).  A big thanks to Eva and Kristen for hosting - go check out the wonderful art entered for this Friday.  I'm so glad you stopped by - love your comments - so if you can leave one below.  Have a blessed and restful (hopefully) weekend.
