WOW! Here we are the 2nd of February, Ground Hog Day and time to link up with Elizabeth over at Altered Book Lover for a second look at something from the past. Haven't heard about this event? Well, it is a new little gathering of some of us that have joined with Elizabeth to show something from the past, on the second day of each month................and this is the second month. Still wondering what I am talking about?? Then head over to Elizabeth's blog and learn from the creator.....LOL
This month I chose a tag I made in 2001. I used a number of watch and clock stamps, in black, then Deco Podged a piece of tissue paper that also had watches and clocks on it. I mounted the tag onto a slightly larger black tag and added some beautiful, fibers at the top. I remember being so thrilled with the way it turned out that I submitted it to the Somerset Studio magazine.........and they published it!!! This was back in the day you HAD to mail in your submissions, and if they chose your work they sent you a copy of the magazine it was in. It was also a time when there were still a lot of rubber stamp images used. I subscribed to the magazine for a long time, until I just had so many, then the local craft stores started carrying it and I could just pick up a copy when I wanted one. Talk about OLD SCHOOL eh??
