|Gelli Printed Art Tags By Phyllis Terrell|
One of the great things about teaching online and having an online presence through this blog, Facebook and other sites, is the opportunity to connect with like-minded souls. I so enjoy that!!
Case in point, my recent online workshop "Gelli Jam" with Artful Gathering Online Art Retreat in the summer of 2014. I met such wonderful people through this event, including the lovely Phyllis Terrell. One of the projects Phyllis and the other students took part in was making a mini art journal with gelli printed shipping tags.
The image above is a scan of just a handful of the tags that Phyllis so generously sent to me for me to use in my own mixed media art.
Below are a couple examples of what I did with Phyllis' tags. You all know how I love to create little characters with bits of pieces of this and that. This practice of creating little "people" lends itself well to tag art. It's also an opportunity for me to use up other scrap bits and recycled elements including those funky fibers that adorn the tags.
The very last tag uses some recycled scrapbooking stickers that someone was going to throw out. They are metallic silver and really pop against Phyllis' awesome tag. I'm going to send her this one as a thank you for her generous gift.
Hope you are having an awesome, artful day, my friends.
