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!!!
I am a self taught mixed media artist and also paper arts,stamping and card making artist. I've been playing at it for roughly twelve years now and loving every minute of it. I never tire of playing with my paints, inks, stamps, markers, glues, scissors, etc. During my artistic blogging journey I've met on-line nothing but generous, sweet and kind people. I always think how wonderful it is that everyone who seems to do this mixed media thing is always so, so nice. I really enjoy making new friends all the time through the blogs and all the other avenues we meet in. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and I hope you find something that appeals to you or inspires you. Like everyone else, I love comments when you have time to leave them, I may not always get back to you with a response and for that I am sorry, but my intentions are always good . Have a wonderful, stress-free, magically delicious day!
