Only two more... and that's it - promise! Well, when I say "That's it", I obviously mean that I won't be doing any more until I have the time :)
These were pretty simple - I tend to make everything in pairs - have two tags, then cover them both in the same paper, and use similar techniques on them. These were sprayed with a mix of Cosmic Shimmers (different for each tag), wrapped in scrunched clingfilm and dried.
Butterflies and lots of stamping of the quote:
"Enjoy the moments that make you happy"
to cover one tag - and then I wrote over one quote to make it stand out a bit.
The butterfly has a texture to it - I covered it in clear-drying glue and then patted it with my finger whilst the glue was still wet.
The quote on the other tag is from a Sheena Douglass stamp:
"Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark"
I used images from a painting called (I believe) 'Orchis' by Rowena Stott (Country Diary Of An Edwardian Lady), and the top swallows I covered in sepia accents.
To be honest, these little tags do have a lot of work and creativity in each one... but because the area is so small (12x6cm) it's a lot quicker than a scrapbook layout. However, I'll not be giving up my beloved scrapbooking - I've a new layout finished that I'll be posting soon that's quite pretty... I used some of the flowers I made (finally! *lol*).
A quickie reminder too, that all this tag-a-mania started with Debbie from Canada
Her efforts show how it's supposed to be done :)
