Back again with a project for A Mixed Media Color Challenge! I was inspired to make a tag. If you'd like tag inspiration, please view Patty's blog(Creating with Paper and Bows), because she makes gorgeous vintage tags! I rarely make tags and thought it would be a great time to make one being that there are many tags in the inspiration photo. And, such lovely colors this week, too!
Here is my tag...
A closer view...
I began my tag with black cardstock and painted cream cardstock with gray paint. I didn't have gray paint, so I had to mix white and black paint. I used the Prima background stamp(Julie Nutting) with flowers and text. I mixed paint with modeling paste to make the circles for the center of the flowers. The eye stamp was stamped with black Staz On ink and green and purple paint for her eye shadow. Glitter was added to the eye shadow and center of the flowers. A little heart charm was added to the bottom of the tag. I placed a Tim Holtz button, ribbon, and twine to finish off the tag.
The tag speaks volumes to me. I often worry about things in the past and future instead of just taking pleasure in the small joys in the present. I need to carry this tag with me and look at it often.:-) Isn't it easy to look in the past or to the future instead of just taking a big breath and enjoying the small things right in front of us?:-) I like the phrase...take time to smell the flowers...
Well, I thank you so much for dropping by today! You are a blessing, thank you! Enjoy your weekend, hugs!
