Decorating a tag is a project that puts me at ease. I think of it as a warm up exercise. The tag is small, and there is no anxiety about covering all that blank space. I like to stain my tags with tea. It’s a pretty simple technique.
- Make tea.
- After brewing take the used tea bag and instead of disposing it, put it in between a few tags. Like a sandwich, tags-tea bag-tags. You can then put something heavy on top, like a rock, or a heavy can of food. Let it sit overnight and the next day you have some vintage tags.
Then decorate. This time I decided to use markers and gel pens to draw.
