Good morning!  Well, I finally did it  . . . I got all 12 tags completed.  I had such a wonderful time creating each and every tag.  I have to say that doing this project has completely rejuvenated me and I have new ideas flowing.  That’s a good thing!

Here’s T!m’s Smiley from Tag 12 and mine is below.


The background was made with the Wrinkle Free Distress Technique using Broken China and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.  Gold Perfect Pearls mixed with water was then sprayed over the tag and dried.  I copied a page from one of my old Hymnals that was torn and halved already.  I completed the look by distressing the edges and sponging with Vintage Photo.  The flourish was stamped over the background and the music in gold acrylic paint.  Using a piece of the music paper, I stamped the sentiment “let there be Peace” and embossed it in gold.  A Memory Capsule was filled with gold beads and put in front of the sentiment.

The flower was made using my Faux Porcelain Technique using Cranberry Crisp paper and Grunge Paper.  I actually made the first flowers with Grunge Paper and they came out so dark (because I couldn’t decided on the color and kept playing) that I went with regular cover stock.  The leaves are made from Grunge Paper that was colored by misting with a Shabby Shutters/Forever Green Pearlized Distress Mist.
