Skeleton Keys and Hand Stamped Tags

I've always had an interest in altered art and art journaling, but never really took the time to do much with it. This year, one of my goals is to explore more art related projects.
Something different from my usual crochet.
Due to my addiction of collecting everything old, I think altered art and repurposing used, thrifted items is the perfect thing.
I've made a bunch of coffee stained, hand stamped tags and put them together with some old skeleton keys, and I'm really excited about how they turned out.
I plan to use some of them in future projects and have some for sale as well.
You can purchase the keys with tags at:
and the tags with ribbons in sets of three at:

Have you tried creating something different lately?

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you all explore something new and different today on your creative journey.
Hugs and laughter!

  2. Beautiful tags! And don't you just love skeleton keys? I always wonder what doors, drawers, or treasure chests they've opened in the past.
