This is a fall tag I made for Kim over at ECLECTIC PAPERIE. It was a lot of fun to make and I plan on attaching it to a gift I've giving someone over Thansgiving. ECLECTIC PAPERIE has some great products. For this tag I used: the Inkssentials #8 Tag in Manila, I used the Buttons Galore in Kiwi Fruit & Lemon Tart, I also used the Twinery in Honey Dew, Lemon Drop and Mandarin Orange (don't those names just sound like Fall?), also on the tag is a Maya Road Felt Pearl Posie in Cream. The paper used was a 6x6 pad by Simple Stories titled "Harvest Lane". Now I love, love, love Simple Stories paper and in the past I've always used the 12x12 paper from them, but after using this 6x6 pad, I think now I'll be using that size more often. The little quotes and paper embellishments that you can cut out of the Simple Stories paper (that they are known for) is better in the 6x6 pad because it's sized better for a tag or an ATC, and I tend to work in smaller areas. I cut the background paper for the tag into strips and then I weaved them together. Once it was done I covered it in the Claudine Hellmuth Studio Multi-Medium Gloss so that it would stay together. I used the convenient .5 fl oz size of the Gloss Medium. Happy Fall Days everyone!!!
