Tag Friday @ A Vintage Journey

Hi everyone x I hope that you are keeping safe during this globel health crisis. It's been some time since I last posted here on my blog and I note that blogger has changed slightly, at least on my pc x

Over at A Vintage Journey Challenge Blog some of the creative guides and I are sharing tags with you. Whenever there are 5 Friday's in the month we provide some tag inspiration and you are welcome to participate along with us x Jennie's wonderful May Challenge "Beautiful Blooms" runs until 4th June  so there's still time to join in there too x
For my tag I decided to revisit some of the techniques demonstrated by Tim Holtz, which are in his book "Compendium of Curiosities" Volume 2. The technique I chose was enamelled stamping and you can view the background created in the photographs below. Broken China and Vintage Photo Distress inks were used.
The frame was also stamped in Archival Ink then heat embossed. Some Idea-Ology and a tile I made using digital papers by Astrid MacLean were adhered to complete the tag.

I do hope you can join in with us for our current challenge theme Beautiful Blooms and Tag Friday.
I have been so grateful for my crafts during this awful siutation we find ourselves in and I am sure you feel the same. Please be safe xx

Take care and Happy Crafting

  1. Gorgeous tag, love the colours, and good to see you around again. Stay safe, hugs, Valerie

  2. What a glorious background, Annie - the colour contrast is so vivid, yet beautifully weathered like old wallpaper, and works beautifully as a setting for the vintage photo and frame. I love the tiny baby perched on the edge of the frame! So great to see you back here on the blog with this lovely Tag Friday tag.
