Tim and I were having a conversation this week about an often asked question he gets, "what do I do with the tags I make?" So I guess that was still in my mind when I decided to make a tag book, since really any background will work for this project. Follow along and I'll show you all the layers.
I placed all the tags next to each other and sprayed Antique Linen Distress Stain. I quickly rubbed the excess away with a paper towel, because I wanted all-over color instead of the speckles the spray makes. Once the tags were dry, I sprayed them with Bundled Sage, Iced Spruce, and just some small drops of Tumbled Glass. Let dry completely before moving onto the next step.
EMBELLISHMENTSSo I folded up my tag book and determined that I wanted at least 3 collages inside. I chose three Photobooth pictures, one for each collage.
We've got tickets and photos so far, so let's add some flowers from Botanical Layers. I picked a few flowers and a butterfly. The butterfly was only black and white from the package so I colored it with Distress Crayons to give it some life. All four pieces have Antique Linen Embossing Glaze added over the surface to add a vintage feel.
I gathered a few more things to use in the collages. Stitched Scraps, Field Notes Snippets (much small than the regular Field Notes Ephemera), Clipping Stickers, some cheesecloth and vintage buttons. Again, still guessing at this point what I will end up using.
With that done, I'm ready to start the collages.
