I know everyone has that something special they do with scraps and bits and pieces. I for one love to collage them. I take whatever is handy, an envelope, chipboard piece or in this case a manila folder piece and just begin putting my scraps or odds and ends on it as I collect them. When it gets semi full I then do some misting, stamping, bubble wrap texture prints or whatever floats my board at the time to tie it all in together. I then give it some healthy layers of mod podge.
|This was the most recent piece that was completed and ready for something to be done with it.|
For the sake of showing you how you can also just make this yourself I pulled out some "junk" goodies to show you just how easy it is.
|Gather a collection of "stuff" that you want to play with. I have boxes and boxes of scraps, empheria, and little things I've picked up here or there. I then pulled out a large envelope to play on.|
|Add a little misting.|
|Some stencil work.|
|Do both sides.|
|Layer on the "stuff". You could also do these collage tags themed. Say for Christmas, Halloween, travel etc.|
|Layer stuff on the other side.|
|Add a little ink and misting.|
|A good healthy layer of mod podge. To each side and let dry thoroughly.|
|Then i ran mine through my Big Shot with a Sizzix tag die that cuts out 3 different sizes. These tags are form the manila folder collage. I added a bit of jute twine and their all done.|
