Tags Of Inspiration | June 2014

Ah, just in time before the end of the month, I focused my creative energy over this past weekend on a few inspiration tags. As my mojo abandoned me sometime before my surgery, tags are the perfect way be creative without a lot of pressure.

(What are my Tags of Inspiration? Here’s my original post if you missed it and want the full details. I am simply making these tags as a trigger. They remind me of my tools, different embellishments, color palettes, border treatments, techniques to add to a page, etc… They are not exactly meant to be works of art  — some are much prettier than others — they simply provide me with inspiration if needed, when I’m working on a project.)

Inspiration ideas:

  • Don’t be shy about using a variety of colors
  • Back vellum sentiments with lighter cardstock for impact
  • Use scraps leftover from another project right away

As always, it’s so much fun to put these tags together and to just play!

I am really looking forward to this short week. Our Independence Day holiday is this week and I have a 4-day weekend coming up. I have lots of scrappy plans. Keeping my fingers crossed that this warm up helps keep the mojo flowing the rest of this week.

Thanks for stopping by today!
