Christmas Tag Book

I was inspired. My neighbor's friend Barb made her a Halloween tag book. That inspired Jan, my neighbor to make a Thanksgiving tag book. And that inspired me to make a Christmas tag book. Now that's a great chain reaction to ART!

This is the front cover. I am making my daughter and myself a Christmas tag book, however, I have stamped the domino angel with more white space....this was a trial and error process.

I used cardboard letters and painted them using Lumiere's metallic silver. When this was dry I then added Liquitex Liquigems artist color "silver Argent". Add Art Glitter #611 (fine glass) Antique Silver while the Liquitex is wet. Allow to dry a few hours before you shake loose the glitter. This really gives lots of dimension!

I added gold mesh to one of the tags. I used my Xyron for adding the adhesive but that leaves a whole lot of sticky to the open areas. My little secret is then to use clear embossing powder and emboss. It adds great highlights and the sticky mess.....gone!

I used double sided cardstock and then added decorative and handmade papers as accents.

This book is my exchange at a Christmas party.
