A tag post at A Vintage Journey

As a brand new challenge blog A Vintage Journey is not yet into it’s full cycle of posts. Alternate Fridays will have the new challenge go live and the following week will announce the winners of the previous challenge, but as there are no winners yet we are sharing a special post which we have called Tag Friday
My tag is one that I actually made the background for last year and didn’t get finished. It involved masking off the images and stamping over, building up a collage of a number of stamps on which I added some tissue tape. That’s where I left it. So I decided it should be finished and published. I had already started to embellish before I realised I hadn’t taken a photo of just the background. It was made using shabby shutters and tumbled glass distress paints, dipping and dabbing until I liked the blended colours.
The stamp set is Purely Random and has this lovely little quote on it.
And as there are stamps of two people dancing (a man and a woman) I added a couple to the cash key using the Stampin’ Up 1/2 inch circle punch and a snippet from the Lost and Found paper stash.
Here are the two dancers …..
The film strip has snippets from Tim’s papers (I keep all the offcuts for such purposes, the corner is from the frames and trims industrious stickers and I also added a single pointer on the clock and a number 8 with some distress paint dabbed on.

I hope you enjoy all the tags on display at A Vintage Journey and I hope you are travelling with us.

Have a great weekend.
