Recently I have started going through old art journals to decrease the amount of stuff in my life.  I had several (Ok five) partially completed journals) and so I decided to take three of them and use the pages as tag bases.  A few of the journal pages turned into great tags all on there own.  This is one of them.

I created this collage at least 5 years ago.  Most of the images are vintage images with matte medium used as collage glue.  There is always stickers, die cuts, stamping and netting on the collage.
