Tabs with my morning coffee today...
I like to try finding a topic that begins with 'T' for
the T Tuesday link-up party with Elizabeth and friends.
Thought I would share TABS
on the edges of my art journal pages.
Tabs make me happy...
Most are made from scrapbook paper or
watercolor paper, either rectangles or circles
punched out with a circle punch. Notice I sewed a
bit of burlap for the tab on the right. It is rather
bulky, but I like how it looks. I've also used security
envelope liners, and watercolor paper with doodles
in paint and pen to make Tabs.
There are lots of options!
The Paper Clip as a tab: above, is a counted
cross-stitch design on Aida, that was cut out, glued to
the paper clip along with backing fabric, and
the entire piece stiffened with white glue.
Another paper clip tab, with a knotted strip of
fabric. You can also see the purchased paper clip
to the left that has an arrow image on it. I am not sure
if I bought it in the office supply aisle,
or in scrapbook supplies.
Above, a rather large tab covered with
fabric scraps. I guess I just wanted to include
the entire collage on this tab...
One of my favorite tabs: a scrap of lace that
I crocheted with beads sewn onto it. The
bugle beads and seed beads stick out over the
edge of the page. Not a substantial tab, but
adds a nice texture!
Tabs on cards or tags inside a pocket, make the
piece easier to pull out of the pocket.
A bit of fall color is showing up in my area
of Ohio...and here's one of the many
primitive pumpkins that appear around our
house this time of year.
Linking up with Elizabeth for T Tuesday.
Thanks for visiting!
