Life Book 2015 - Week 2: Playing tag & Celebration jar

This week the challenge was to create a tag which was created under the tutelage of Roben-Marie Smith.  I made my own tag from a piece of white cardstock which I coloured using different sprays.  I used the same colours on a separate piece of card and then I stamped, doodled and added washi tape before gluing it to the tag.  I made faux stitching around the tag using a fine pen before adding the label and coloured seam-binding ribbon.

The other part of this assignment was the celebration jar.  The idea is to decorate a jar and each day write something positive or good that has happened to you and put it in the jar.  At the end of the year you take out all the pieces of paper and you can read back over your year, or if you need a pick-me-up during the year you can delve into the jar.  Here's mine -
I bought the jar from Briscoes (on sale) and decorated it using a paper serviette.  The original serviette was lime green with white spots.  The layers were separated and the plain white layers were randomly sprayed with various coloured dyes.  The serviettes were torn into pieces and all the pieces were collaged onto the jar.  Washi tape and embellishments were added and the project was complete.

Thanks Tamara Laporte for another fabulous lesson.
