These are tags for a swap on Speckled Eggs Blog, with Heather! We are to create 20 tags (2 x4 inches)and punch the holes and Heather will bind them together! I did all originals for mine! The fronts are my favorite! I did mixed media on the background...which was basically vintage papers, paints and stamping, glitter spray- in layers and then I created the bird image and added a real person EYE to give it some fun and the quote....all cut out and mounted on the mixed media cardstock! The backs are little nests with girls sitting inside and a flower and brad with more stamping. The swap theme was birds, nests and feathers! I will be sending these off to Heather soon! Hugs,Patti
