We will be making two Red, White & Blue Tag Books to send to random partners assigned after the signup is closed. We will use a #8 size tag, which is 6.25 x 3.25 inches. Each book should have Red, White, and Blue related elements and use four tags. Have lots of fun using texture, color, ribbon, and other embellishments. Please put your name/info on the back of each book.
Here is a link to a tutorial on how to construct a tag book and some inspiration.
Helpful Hint: I found it easier to tape the tags down to my work surface to keep them from slipping...and be sure to leave 1/16" between the tags so they will fold up without buckling. Tissue tape works best for binding the book. The book should consist of four tags accordion folded.
Skill level: 3) BLOSSOMING - Geared toward the artist who is comfortable with most techniques, willing to try new methods and take risks, and include a varied range of techniques and materials, as well as fielding Q&A from group members about their artistic process.
