Yahoo it Wed, it's my favorite day of the week,
You know why, if you came from our lovely
Julia HERE that wonderful artist gives us umm
snoopy artist who love to look at other artists
fabulous desk and what they are up too, grab
a cuppa, of your choice and enjoy
I'm working on a tag for a wonderful artist,
it's a secret who :O)

These are funny kind of tags, but it's what I use.
The pic above you can see I have cut the tag
smaller then the holder so I can add texture,
and it slides easily inside..  

I sand all 4 sides, it helps thing stick better, there
is a slot hole in the middle, I cover it with printer paper
and large tape, nothing will get on the inside after I added
everything :) 

I cover both sides of the tag with a special paper towel
I had this in my rusting pot, when I saw the gorgeous
rust pattern, I had to save it for something special.
I got 2 piece, once I separated them, matching, kool,
covered both sides, glued using mod podge.

Paper towels have a great texture as you can see
I put it with the bubbles on one side, I did rubbed
it with my gold ink..

The other side had indentation, I love it both ways.
So this is how I begin my tags, hope this isn't to long,
I never do anything the easy way, LOL..
Last week, I had my games pieces on my desk,
I made a bird neighborhood, if you want to have
a boo you can see it here, it's 2 parts sorry,
 I love how the hood turned out..
I'm so glad you came by to visit wishing you all a
wonderful creative day.
Sorry Julia if this was to long, I know I'm way to chatty,
us magpies are ^-^..

Oh my goodness, Dianne, look what you've created with a paper towel. WOW! You are amazing. I absolutely love your art.
I've been a tad behind on visits with bloggy friends but am enjoying catching up today. We had so many college activities with both of our children the past few weeks.
Off to browse what else I've missed.

Just had to come back around and join your site. I'm going to keep my eye on you girl! So much going on here. One of my yorkies is named Maggie Mae and I call her MagPie and when I began crafting in this house I only had a desk and a chest for my things in a small section of the laundry room. Maggie had a bed in there thus came Magpie's Corner. I love to make card and flowers are my favorite thing. Hugs Glenda #73
