Art Journal Journey - Pockets and Tags

Hi Everyone!

I'm excited to tell you that I'm hosting over at Art Journal Journey for the month of August, with the theme of Pockets and Tags

Here's my page for the theme.

I used teabags for my pockets, snipping off the tops, emptying out the tea leaves, and inserting a tiny tag into them.

I decorated the fronts of the teabags with PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paint and a PaperArtsy stencil by Sara Naumann, then added a Tim Holtz rub on.

I love these nature themed rub ons.

And here are the little tags. I decorated them with some collage scraps, a mini Prima lace stamp, and some Tim Holtz phrase stickers.

I'm looking forward to seeing your Pocket and Tag themed art journal pages over at Art Journal Journey this month.

  1. Gorgeous journal page with the tea-bags, and I love the colours you used. The tags are pretty, too. I'll be joining in soon, just not with tea-bags! Have a great week, and have a fun month at AJJ, hugs, Valerie

  2. wow your pockets are brilliant! I may have to try this I have a whole box of saved tea bags--thanks for hosting sounds like a fun theme

  3. The tags are fabulous. We couldn't see them on the AJJ page. I'm getting lots of inspiration from the pages already submitted. Hugs, Eileen

  6. I love this theme, Alison. It speaks to me. I also love that you chose to use teabags for your pockets. And those tags, which I didn't have a chance to see in the image on the homepage at Art Journal Journey, have great sayings and quotes. Thanks for being our host this month at Art Journal Journey, dear.

  7. Alison this is a fantastic and inspirational page for your theme choice at Art Journal Journey this month. We are all so pleased you agreed to be our guest hostess for the month.
    I love how you used the tea bags and decorated them, the tags look awesome as well.
    Stay safe.
