Using Up Some Left Overs

Hi guys. Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
I have a journal page for Try It On Tuesday. The theme right now is Using Your Leftovers. I used a lot of those for this page.
I started with a giant tag (almost 11 inches tall) that came on a cabinet we bought earlier in the spring. I painted it red with a purple edge, and stamped a background stamp randomly over it. Then I attached the tag to a page in my journal.   I added a playing card sized piece that came from a fun deck of fortune telling cards. Nope, I don't tell fortunes but they make a great set of cards for art. I also added this orange tag (that says B1) which is a left over from carrying luggage onto a bus that goes to the airport. And then I also added a few stickers, all of which come from sets of partially used stickers, except the bottom left sticker (the white Sasquatch/BigFoot on the red circle), which came in a the packaging of a electronic charger.
So that's my page for today. I'm glad you stopped by to visit and check it out.

Your giant tag is a fantastic idea and I love the red and purple background and the different layers you have created, beautiful! It looks as if all those leftovers were meant to be together, the different elements and colours really work with the B1 orange tag to pay homage to your recent travels, I love it! Hope you had a fab weekend and wishing you a Happy Week ahead! J :-)

I'm in love with your beautiful and colorful recycled tag. Nothing makes me happier than seeing recyclables kept out of the landfill. This is super impressive.
