In this class, Lynn will teach you the process of using recycled, up-cycled and new items to create a “Bag of Tags”. The finished tags can be used for a variety of holidays or events. We will make six tags during this class in a variety of sizes and themes.

Your finished tags will reflect a variety: some tags will result in an older, vintage feel, some tags will have a newer more modern feel, and some will reflect nature so in the end, you will have a variety of tags to enjoy. And, for fun, we will make one tag with a hidden message compartment and one tag made out of an old playing card.

When finished, the tags can be used: when wrapping a gift creating a tag for the “to” and “from” component of gifts, to write a memory on and give to someone, to add to an art or a junk journal, as a decorative element to any gift, to hang on a holiday tree, to use as a bookmark, anyway you choose! With the knowledge gained in this course, you would also be able to create your own “Bag of Tags” to give away as a gift after class.

Being playful and appreciating our creative side, we will create and complete six tags together. Finally, we will decorate our “bag” which you will take your tags home in.

Using the art of beauty and color, recycling and up-cycling, you will leave this class with finished, usable items.
This class is earth-friendly.
We will touch on the art of collage with one of the tags.
You will learn how to create tag templates from an every-day item.
Knowledge gained in this class will enable you to continue to replicate the process of making tags on your own.
Some feel the
 process of creation is stress-relieving.
This class is about joy, play and taking numerous independent items and turning them into something beautiful.
Your creative side will surface.

Lynn Blair
Lynn Blair & Associates, LLC/Art as Therapy
Professionally Lynn practiced as a registered nurse with a Doctorate Degree in the healthcare field. During her 35+ years in healthcare, she noticed how art helped patients and residents heal. And, how art helped patients and residents positively refocus their energy during difficult times. Therefore, she knew when she retired from the corporate world, she would be focusing on Art as Therapy. Lynn has been working with beads, yarn, fabric, paper and a variety of mediums for years, starting with stringing beads and buttons as a very young girl with her grandmother. During middle school and high school she sewed her own clothing. When living in California, for several years Lynn taught beading and jewelry-making classes at a local bead store. At one time, Lynn had a 60″ weaving loom and weaved her own curtains and material.
Lynn enjoys creating items which have a variety of textures, art that includes recycled items and found objects, and repurposing all possible elements in art.
She creates many different types of beautiful ephemera to utilize in her one-of-a-kind art junk journals which she sells in her ETSY Storefront: lynnmariblair
Her commercial studio, Art as Therapy, will be up and functioning in Scottsdale the summer of 2024 where her work can be viewed and purchased.
Lynn is a member of the Sonoran Arts League and Paperworks. Several pieces of commissioned work were generated by Lynn to include a memory bridal journal, a tiny art journal, and a personal grief journal after the passing of a loved one.
Lynn lives in North Scottsdale where she is inspired by the beautiful boulders, native foliage, sunsets, and the gifts of nature within her art.
