Shipping tag collage

Shipping tags are very popular as a material for collage art and mixed media. Here I have combined shipping tags with a large floral print and some other ephemera to create a colorful piece that sings of summer! It is done on canvas board with two different fabrics that have been coated with matte medium. The actual shipping tags were painted with watercolors, appliqued with a actual black and white photo from the 30’s, some wallpaper, a rubber stamp picture, a rubbing, a scrap from one of my watercolors, a rubber stamp quote, and some scrapbooking materials and then worked over with ink and colored pencils until the desired effect was achieved. Then they were affixed to the floral panel. The background was a solid fabric, bordered with ribbon trim and accented with a funky ric rac.
