Character Construction Tag Art & Valentine Paige Dolls

This week I dyed some white tags and stamped them with all my Catherine Moore Character Construction stamps and this is what I created...
As you can see, I just focused on the faces - it's fun seeing them grouped together like this. Below are a few steps of how I created it.
Start with dying some white tags in Rit tan dye mixed with walnut stain.
Then stamp the faces using brown ink onto the tags.
I then glued the tags to a piece of canvas covered with some brown paper and covered it all with beeswax.
That's about it, I finished it by tying a muslin bow at the top.
 With some of my extra tags, I also created these paper dolls.
Thanks Catherine for making such beautiful stamps, so fun to play with!

And last, I also made the following Valentine theme Paige dolls..
If you're interested in any of the doll images in a digital format, I'll sell them for $1 each, just email me and I'll send you a PayPal invoice and send you the jpg file. I made the cards below with the images, pictured in my daughter's kitchen studio.
And if you need some Valentine recipes to make, watch my daughter's YouTube videos.
Have a Happy Valentine's Day!


  1. Great project using the Character Construction stamps. I like the brown stained faces and tags against the darker background and the beeswax
    coating over it gives it a nice look and feel to it. Your valentine paige girls are so adorable - great embellishments. Rachel's red velvet cheese cake
    brownies look scrumptious - really cute! Perfect Valentine dessert. I would love to get your doll images on jpg.

  2. Love the tags!
    But I'm "In Love" with the
    Valentine Paige!!!!!!
