Wabi Sabi – Butterfly Tag by Audrey Underwwod

Wabi Sabi - Butterfly Tag by Audrey Underwwod

Hi there.
Audrey here again. I love my scrapbooking but sometimes I just don’t have time to do a page or my mojo is not showing up to play. So I just take out my art journal or some paper etc. and just fiddle around playing in the hope something shows up to play and create with me.

Tags are a great way to start something small. If you get it finished you can use it on a page, on a card, or in your journal. Or not! and just keep adding to the pile as I do sometimes.

I created a short video of how I put the tag together. The title came about because the tag nearly ended up in the bin. I made a bit of a booboo near the end of the tag but embraced the Japanese way of Wabi-Sabi, which basically means to ’embrace imperfection’. So I kept going and in the end, quite liked what came to be.

I used the NEW Vintage Artistry Hike More paper for this little tag. The Vintage Artistry Hike More – Journal Cards piece, which by the way make great tags, along with the Hike More Rub-On Transfers, a Vintage Artistry Essentials File frame, some texture added with the lace and Jute, all from 49 and Market and to finish it off some shading with watercolour pencils and a splash of paint.

I rub the butterfly image onto a white card and cut it out for a firmer image to add to your tag.

Take a look at the video to see how it all came together.
