Layout for Mini Challenge: Putting Pen to Paper (a close up)

This was an incredibly hard challenge for me.  See...these challenges are just as much for us as they are for YOU!  LOL  If you want to see my entire layout, please go to Counterfeit Kit Challenge

Tags...that design feature just got stuck in my head.  First of all, tags do not give much writing space.  That is a plus if you are struggeling with what to say, right?  And they can be embellished...I wanted to use bits of just about everything from my kit.

All of the colors I picked popped well with the black paper, so I made that my background.  I didn't want to just use white for the journaling tags, so I pulled the tan paper (I have ink to match) and stamped some journaling lines on them.  I wrote out what I wanted to say (and number the tags so I wouln't forget) so I would know how many decorated tags I would need to make to fill out the page. I did attatch the journaling tags with foam squares so they would be more prominant.

Green/white tag:  good backdrop for the black letter stickers from the kit for my title
White/Black tag: Large white glittered flower that I made
Black floral tag: metal embossed chipboard frame with a chipboard butterfly
   embossed with cuttlebug-embossed with teal embossing powder-painted with crackle medium-painted with white paint
Striped tag: three large glittered buttons in a cluster
White tage: bird from stamp set...added leaves...brad for eye
Circle tag: metal trim along bottom
Green/black tag: covered with one of the bingo cards (and trimmed) date of blog opening marked
