A couple of weeks ago, one of my friends asked me to design a project featuring tags for her and some of her BFFs. I remembered saving a similar project by the hugely talented 2GypsyGirls (Paula & Deb) under my favourites at the end of 2010 and went hunting for it. Their project served as inspiration for what I decided to put together for Mercia and her friends...
I opted to use only 12 tags which were mounted onto a stretched canvas (covered with tissue paper and colour-washed with cream acrylic paint), measuring 12" x 18".
The tags measure approx. 2.5" x 4.75" (6cm x 12cm) each.
So here is my take on 12 tags of
The tag was sprayed with Glimmer Mist and
a strip of Tim Holtz tissue tape adhered to the bottom
with a bit of ribbon trim on top.
I glued an image by ARTchix Studio to a silver bezel
and embellished it with some bling,
before filling it with dimensional fluid
and then framing it with black paper lace.
The background was stamped with an image by Crafty Individuals.
was adhered over the stamped image
and a key-charm attached with pure silk ribbon.
Strips of decorative tape by Prima Marketing were stuck to the top and bottom of the tag,
with a torso image bought from Shabby Cottage Studio as the focal point.
An acrylic pendant was rubber-stamped with an image by Cavallini and painted from the back.
I punched 2 holes on either side of the neck and thread the pendant through black organza ribbon to create a "necklace".
An image by Hero Arts was stamped onto the tag.
The butterfly was die-cut from metal tape (bought at our local hardware store) and embossed with my Cuttlebug machine. The butterfly was covered with cream acrylic paint, before using a wet-wipe to remove some of the paint, in order to create a distressed look.
A few links from a rosary chain and some rayon ribbon complete the tag.
Details on tags 5 to 12 will follow soon...
