I'm here today with another tag for Valerie's Recycle and Reuse challenge at Tag Tuesday. This tag is a little bit of summer.
I actually reused a bookmark I received as a freebie (it came with a used book I ordered) as the base of my tag. I painted it white and covered it with some printed tissue paper from my stash because after being used, it was a little worn looking. The tissue paper originally came from an order at Joggles, an online craft store. She always wraps what you buy with tissue paper before shipping, and unless it is taped too much and I can't unwrap it without a lot of wrinkles, I save that paper.
I then added some pink washi tape, a scrap of left over gold foil paper trim, a bird that I had die cut ages ago and pulled out of my die cut scrap box, as well as gluing down a gold foil paper sun I had. Finally I stamped the quote.
There you have my tag!
Let me also share the last of the photos from Berkshire Botanical Gardens from back in late July. They had an interesting vegetable garden area. which was near the barn where they had a summer program for children.
I was interested in this area because my veggie garden usually ends up filled with weeds, and I am curious how I can spruce that up. Mine is much smaller than what they had at the Botanical Garden, but then, even I don't want to exactly copy theirs, I did like some of their ideas.
I really want to make one of these little tic-tac-toe boards to put near the fire pit. It would be so easy to do.
Hope you enjoyed your visit and that you day is going or goes well.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
