Today, I have not one but two projects to share. It is no secret that my most favorite craft project is a homemade tag. Just love to make them!
First up is a tag layered with leftover scraps of paper from Prima's Anna Marie collection. The flowers, I believe, are Prima as is the pearl/rhinestone swirl and the circle of crystal around the tiny rose in the upper right corner. The butterfly charm is from Michaels. I added some accents around the tag with Liquid Pearls and finished it off with a pink twill ribbon.
I love the papers in the 6x6 Anna Marie paper pad. I'm finding myself drawn to them lately. However, the next tag is completely different.
For this tag, I decided to get a little messy. Using two shades of Tim Holtz' Distress Inks (salty ocean and squeezed lemonade) spritzed with water, I took a white tag and dragged it through the inks. It created the prettiest color combination. I did a bit of stamping with a Prima stamp. I then took a Tim Holtz graduated circle stencil and created a nice layer with some Liquitex modeling paste. A piece of wide lace was put on top of that. The flowers are Prima. See that pretty vine diecut? That is from Cherry Lynn and I just love it! The cluster of flowers was finished off with a vintage button and a rose from Recollections. The butterfly was made with a Martha Stewart punch and coated with Recollections glitter.
Well, I guess that was a bit of a lengthy post from me; but I hope you like the tags. It's a beautiful Memorial Day weekend here in this part of the country. We're getting ready to go to a family barbecue but are keeping in mind those who gave their lives for this country. Have a wonderful weekend. Thanks so much for stopping by!
