Archive for the ‘Tags’ Category


I’ve been wanting to work on tags just like the one on Tim Holtz’s blog, but unfortunately it’s hard to get tags here in Sendai. I tried to look various stationery store and apparently in Japan, they just don’t need tags. I found some on the 100 yen shop (dollar store), but they are wrinkle-y and in a very bad quality of paper so I didn’t buy it. In my visit to Tokyo last week I found some better quality tags, plus I bought some more online. I made this a couple of days ago :

I’m using Tim Holtz’s Urban Tattoo stamp, and immediately remember my home town : Jakarta. It’s a messy, dirty, hot and crazy town, but it’s always home to me. So I incorporated this GW♥JKT (it’s like I♥NY thingy but in Jakarta slang language) campaign into my art, and I liked how it turned out. Jakarta, Jakarta, I miss you more everyday.

Supplies :
Stamps : Tim Holtz Urban Tattoo, Inkadinkado Dot Flourishes, alphabet stamps, Fiskars Basic Font.
Inks : Stazon Jet Black, Distress Inks : Broken China, Spiced Marmalade, Scattered Straw, Dusty Concord, Vintage Photo, Fired Brick
Other : White embossing powder, Perfect Pearls, Signo Pink Gel Pen, Kuretake red ribbon, Ranger glossy accent
