Artful Days Tag

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

A busy day here with the usual household chores.

Today I am sharing my second project using the new goodie box from Artful Days.

This month the theme is "by the sea"

If you wish to see what goodies you can find inside the box please click the video below.


I have created a tag for my second project.


First I used Pebeo modelling paste through Tim Holtz sun ray stencil.  Once this was dry I then distressed with DI squeezed lemonade and then peacock feathers.


I then took one of the ephemera card and attached at an angle onto the tag, I then added the silver sentiment charm and a few of the gems which look like tiny shells.


On the bottom of the tag I layered up some hessian, a strip of denim and added another of the shells.  Using 3 of the flowers arrange them around the shell and inside the shell, snuggling the small glass bottle inbetween.  On the other side I then adhered a couple of buttons, ephemera shells, gems, a large shell and the silver star fish charm.


To finish off I added some of the little sequins, gems and small shells around the tag. I then cut two pieces of the twine in jade and rust threaded the fish charm and threaded through the hole at the top.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

A Vintage Journey - Stencil It
Creative Artiste #17 - Anything Goes Mixed Media
PDE Linky Party #134 - Tags
Tag you're it #54 - Inspired by Showcase Tag
