Hi there! It's Ronda here today to share with you three boo-tiful halloween tags.
I love this time of year and especially love creating tags for this season. Tags are a great little project to get your creative juices flowing. I like to hang them up together as decoration and then use them either on my layouts or all together in a mini album.
Supplies: Frightful: Frightful Words Paper, Mixed Bag, Decorative Brads, Chipboard, Other: Ranger Ink Wakley Media Paint, Golden Paints, Uniball Vision Black Pen.
On the Little Monsters tag I painted the background purple. I like using pops of color with the typical orange & blacks. Purple is definitely one of my favorites to pair with those colors. Once my background was dried, I layered the frightful words paper on top, ripping the bottom edge to expose the purple. I added some burnt orange paint to the paper and then began layering my elements.
Those witch legs are so stinking cute paired with the banner! I wanted to bring some of the black color to the top so I added the little monsters banner along with the 31 pennant and two chipboard bats. The pumpkin brad looks great as the final pop of color.
Supplies: Frightful: 6x6 Paper Pad, Decorative Brads, Chipboard, Stickers, Other: Golden Paints,
On this 31 tag I also started with a pop of color, a dark turquoise. I mixed the turquoise with a little bit of white paint to break up the dark color. I grabbed my 6x6 paper pad and picked out this frightful piece of patterned paper to layer on top. The white against the turquoise really stands out.
I didn't think this tag needed much more so i just layered a few pieces here and there. The sticker arrow to the top is paired with the fun spider.
Did you notice there are three around the page? Three is always a good number in design. I adore the giant sparkling 31 chipboard frame so I made it my focal point of this tag. I love that it echoes the design of the patterned paper. I finished the tag with the chipboard "October 31," adding that touch of white to the bottom.

The Boo Crew tag is all about pairing patterned paper. Again I went to my 6x6 patterned paper pad and pulled out a few sheets. I wanted an orange base without too busy of a pattern so this orange chevron was perfect. Next I layered the same pattterned paper in three different strips across the top of the tag. By using the front & the back of the paper plus adding some purple paint, I really changed up the look and stretched my paper.
I created a rosette "flower" out of patterned paper in a simple white & black design. I added the brad circle on top changing out the small brad for a larger one. Don't be afraid to change up these fabulous brads to suit your design esthetics. I then added another brad element and a sticker circle design to the background before adding my rosette piece on top.
The enamel dots around the page add that perfect pop of color and reinforce my circle elements around the page.
