Art Journal Every Day: Tags, Tags, Tags!

AJEDHeader2020

If you're new to Art Journal Every Day, the concept is simple: It's a commitment to take ten minutes each day to do something in your art journal.  No need to finish anything or even like it.  It's about making the time to nourish your creativity every day!  If you have the time to flip through your phone, you have the time to Art Journal Every Day.  If you'd like to share what you make, use the hashtag #artjournaleveryday so that we can all take a peek. 

I love to use tags for experimenting and exploring. They're hardy and they're small.  It's a perfect combination.  Stamping, watercolor, Pan Pastel, gelatin printing, mixed media, collage, product experiments -- a tag is the perfect mini canvas in my opinion. Here are just a few of the tags I've shared over the years:

I share so many tags that people always ask me the same question: what do you do with all those tags?!  The answer is simple.  Most of the time, I put them in my art journal! Today I thought I'd share one of my favorite techniques for using tags in my art journal: creating page turn tabs.  Watch the video for the how-to:

If you're free on Friday night, join me for "Friday Night Art Journaling: Tags" where I'll share all of my favorite tag techniques!  You can also learn how to make a book from tags...
