I'm here today to show my first project of the month,
it's an XL tag (my new fave surface to work on) at the moment anyway, LOL
the tag measures 10.5cm x 21.5cm,
that's 1 third bigger than the 8 by 16cm tags fab ha!
the focus this month for the design team is the amazing distress stains
they are on offer in the shop for this month only.
Here's my Tag,
I started of by die cutting the word journey along the side
I then took a variety of the distress stains
in a rainbow of colours
& added bands of colour to the tag as shown,
& stamped randomly as shown in the picture below,
& stamped the word nature near the top,
next I made a dimensional pile of leaves with
& some textured card, that was sanded back
& the edges were inked with Distress inks
all glued with silicone glue & added then to the tag,
I then added the squirrel snugly into the pile of leaves,
I printed out the the little poem
that I made up myself (one of my better ones) LOL
& went scruffily around the words with a zig pen,
I distressed the edge of the tag with Tim's paper distresser
& added fibers through the hole at the top.
& there you have it!
hope you like my XL tag, the first of many, me thinks (lol)
I'll be back on the 15th with project number 2
until then wrap up, keep warm,
& carry on crafting (LOL)
