Tag You're It! Transferring skills from paper to fabric...

Have you ever started a project and no matter how much you work at it, it just isn't what you want at the end?

At moments like these, breathe deep and ask yourself what it is you like and don't like about it.

And here was my list after this particular day of making tags with Millie. Mind you her tags looked wonderful.

Things I would change in my supplies:
Color inks were too pastel for my personal taste, ribbons should have been a gross grain not a satin. Didn't like the butterfly on the left and couldn't see the L, again, the color was too pale for my taste. The glitter was sticking to my versa ink pad :( I hate making my supplies messy.

What I did like: Playing with the versa ink, stamping repeated patterns, blending ink colors, dimensional stamping, scalloped edging, fancy print background on L stamp, pretty glitz spray, great ink pens...

What I learned about myself: stronger color preference, love the "neatness" of digital scrapbooking, found digi stamps to do the same things, enjoyed using the scalloped edge punch on both digital and paper scrapbook projects, versa ink is a must, glitz spray has lots of uses.

With this new found understanding of what I like, I will transfer it to fabric!

digi scrapping does make for easier clean up...
