TRAVEL


I chose as my Travel Tag a favorite quote of mine.
If you do not know where you are going,
the road will get you nowhere.
I hand lettered the quote on a piece of paper that I had aged with distress ink.
I made the suitcase out of stacked cardboard, decorated it and put on country flag labels. The arm holding the suitcase is also cardboard and both are raised with pop dots.
The background is a generic map that has been distressed..
The bottom tag is a hand lettered:
Life is a Journey
It is mounted on a red grosgrain ribbon and has a dimensional 'compass' over lapping on the side.
My apologizes for the fuzzy tag photo. I am having trouble with my computer this week.
A BIG THANK YOU for all the gracious comments on my Fish Tag. You encourage me greatly.
