Nature Museum Tags














Nature Museums, cabinets of curiosity, naturalist, and ephemera are what really speak to my soul. All of these things seem to be about history. Which is kind of ironic because my husband LOVES the history channel and it normally bores me to death! I have wanted to create using these materials for a long time. Over the holiday break I scanned a bunch of my favorite ephemera, got a software program, and created some collages. I got a few of the images from the coolest etsy shop Shaving Kit Supplies. I just adore everything about this shop. I guess you could say I got my "start" with my paper tags. So the collages will become tags first. Then I plan on creating postcards, stickers, notecards, and more with them. My favorite is the squid. Which one do you like best? They will be avalible in my shop this week. Thank you all so much for your very sweet comments on my pictures being in Somerset Life. It warms my heart to know so many kind people are out there.

My favorite is the one with the butterfly, followed closely by the rose and pretty script.

Love the butterfly best - although they are all lovely. What software did you use? Is it easy & would you recommend it?

Beautiful! Found you through Artful Blogging, totally enjoying my Sunday morning on your blog, coffee in hand. I too was wondering what software you preferred for doing the stacking of images? Thanks!
