Something Different

It's not because I have been 'resting" from art projects , I had a medical family situation to attend to and am now just getting back into concentrating on new projects.
Before this I did have an amount of work done with another in the wings. Earlier in the year I was involved with an art market as a member of a printmaking group . We worked towards  sharing a stall at the September market so being inspired  I felt it was a good avenue to recycle some old prints etc. I dismembered an old paper bag for my template and made 8 carry bags , some slightly larger then a couple of others. As you know what happens one thing led to another and soon found myself making all sorts of tags to put in them. Anything from book marks (8), post cards(3) with hand drawn posting address info. on the reverse, to /from cards(1), gift cards (6) and one original cd size print from a previous project.

A sample of the cd prints.
Old portrait prints for library book marks, being sorted so no bag receives the same colour or shape.

Selection of the postcards. 

More bookmarks or tags the purchaser can use for whatever is required.

Sorting details again.

I "wrapped'" the bottoms to prevent then from falling out should someone pick then up to look at. 
Presentation of contents for the bags.
This is only three of the bags with the two on the right being my own prints  and the one on the left was a leftover paper from my last book making session. Unfortunately due to circumstance beyond my control it was cancelled.
