Day 7 Of 12 Tags

Wasn't Tim's tag number 7 wonderful today??? I loved it, and I really wanted mine to be as great. So after 30 minutes of cleaning up my space from last nights creative storm, I started getting out the things I would need for today's tag. I thought I had everything I needed this time, but no...I didn't have the leaf die. That's the main thing I really needed! So I once again improvised by using all the teeny, tiny leaves from the Autumn Gatherings and Festive Greenery dies. This "small" fact was really going to change the look of my tag, not to mention a lot more tedious work. So I thought I would over compensate by adding some major bling. I lifted an idea from Shelly Hickox, about using the caps of real acorns and gluing in something else...something blingy! I had pink crystal beads that I dyed with Red Pepper Alcohol Ink. I love how they came out! Thanks for the idea Shelly! I also used Tea Dye and White Picket Fence Distress Stain on my background, along with Blue Patina Perfect Pearls Mist, rather than the colors Tim used. It was hard for me to cover up the background because I really liked those color combinations and the cool pattern that was made after I splattered water on top. A very cool technique Tim! I also decided to combine the Angel and the Merry Christmas on one tag rather than two. To really make the title pop I added some dots with my favorite white Sakura pen. Even though I didn't have the cool, large Glassine leaves, I am very pleased with how my tag came out.
