1. Adhere vintage music to tag.
To create the wings-
2. Lay the wings out (no glue yet), making sure you have 5 pieces on the both left and right side.
3. Paint all the pieces of wings (only the front) with acrylic paint (white, off white or cream will work). Let dry completely.
|Once wings are completely dry, lightly sand edges. I added a bit of Distress Ink but I am not sure this step is really necessary since the gold foil will cover it up.|
|One at a time, rub just the tips of the wings with a good glue stick. You can always add more if it is not enough the first time.|
|Lay a piece of gold foil over the top, shiny side up.|
|Use a bone folder or brayer to burnish the foil|
|Peel away, leaving the gold foil on the wing tips where the glue was. Repeat steps on each layer of the wings. If you are not getting enough gold, let foil/glue dry on the wing a little, then peel away.|
|When wings are dry, gently bend to give them more dimension. Set aside|
8. Add wings over cheesecloth overlapping at center. NOTE: Since I bent the wings to make them more dimensional, I used foam tape to adhere the wings to the tag.
|Add the clock face/jingle bell to the center of the wings with foam tape. I used 2 pieces on top of each other to raise it up to the right level.|
|Glitter chipboard crown and add above wings with foam tape.|
I love this tag, hope you did too!See you on Friday for tag #18 - Moulin Rouge...we'll work with wet Perfect Pearls for this one.
