I cut out 5 tags out of the White Out Line and then I started to create. Everything used to create my tags was from my personal stash. I enjoyed “throwing out the rules” and just getting lost in art! When creating art like this layers is really key. usally I’m a less is more scrapper, but in this case when I was finished I would stand back and ask myself what else can I put on there, the more the better!
Since the frame was longer than my 12x12 paper, I sliced my paper and pieced together on the base cardboard. I did carefully plan where to slice the paper so that the pieced together part would be covered by a tag in the end.
Tag 4, I used some Doodle Bug paper frills inked with a tangerine chalk. Prima Flowers, Queen & Co. Brads with the words “Be Happy” , an acrylic heart by Heidi Swap with more chalking around the edges and a pretty v shaped ribbon at the top.
And lastly the 5th tag used a coordinating paper form the White Out line as a strip edged with a mini rick rack. More rick rack to make the flower stem. A flower cut from another paper from the same line. The centers of flowers were given an epoxy dimension with crystal effects. Making Memories eyelet word painted and sanded quoting “be an original” (see a theme here? It really wasn’t intentional it just happened that way! I Love art!) And a double looped ribbon stapled to the top.
using a staple gun staple the art back into the frame (making sure to pull out all the old staples first). Also don’t forget to sign the back of your art work as handmade and original!
