We're on! I've had plenty of interest in doing a Dorothy Tag Book Swap, so I hope that
you will join us and play along!
Here is a button that you can add to your blog to show that you are participating.
Please EMAIL ME here: firstname.lastname@example.org, if you are joining and include:
1- your name
2- your email address
3- your blog address (if you have one)
If you write all this out for me, I just have to copy it and add it to my list. I'd like to publish the list of participant's blogs, if you do not want me to publish yours, please say so.
We are quite Oz crazy around here at the cottage, so this is right up my alley. Please join me in celebrating the 71st anniversary of this magical movie by making a collaborative tag book with other Wizard of Oz loving artists!
I'll have some images and text from my 1903 edition of the book if you'd like to use them, as well as some sheet music that could be of use for you.
To use the images from this old book, just click on the links at the end of this post. One PDF is to be printed full size, another PDF is set to print 4" x 6", and the last is set at wallet size.
Please help your self! Even if you are not in the swap, you are welcome to use the images for your artwork.
For this swap, you will create SIX tags with the theme of "Dorothy". Your tags can be inspired by Frank L. Baum's original book, or from the 1939 movie.
Please make your tags approximately 4-1/2 x 2-1/2". You don't have to be exact, variety of size and shape is nice. But please stay about that size, an inch or so either way will work.
Also, feel free to cut your tag from any material you chose, fabric, card stock, metal, chipboard, etc.
You have the option of finishing both sides of the tags as elaborately as you'd like, or leaving the back side blank.
PLEASE SIGN YOUR TAG!! If you have a blog, please include the address. You DO NOT need to be a blogger to join.
Once the tags arrive at my cottage, by September 30th- I'll sort them into piles that look cute together and assemble the books with a cover that I make myself, along with some sort of charm (I've been eying some ruby slippers...or maybe Totos?) and pretty ribbons.
You might get your own tag back in your book.
