Elegant Mind

Just another tag for this week's theme at Simon's Monday challenge with no new ideas or techniques to impart. Only a reminder to do what you love, create with abandon and embrace the escape it provides.

Two Days

Collage play with scraps on a manila tag and my way of preserving a quote that I like. I'm linking up to Simon's Monday challenge because this week it's all about tags.

One-Cent Flora

I hope to make several tags this week and link-up to Simon's Monday challenge because I love to make tags. If you haven't seen my flipcard blog, manilaguerilla.blogspot.com, it's where I file them and you can change the view to any format you like (the "Mosaic" view is pretty cool, too).

This tag is clean and simple and here's what I used to make it: Prima Epiphany paper, Idea-ology Aviary collage paper, and stamps by Heidi Swapp and Tim Holtz.

This is the first time using the Aviary paper and the birds are a little blurry/fuzzy. I don't know if this is by design (Tim does like the distressed look) or if I just got a less than perfect batch and I wish the images were sharper. Even so, I love this new paper (I already have the Botanical and Plain versions) and I highly recommend it if you like to do collages.
