Stencils and Tags

This year is going to be about Layering...
So what better place to start than on a Tag?!?!?
Lots of products here, just play with the layers.

I start with a #8 Manila Tag, GrungePaste and a Chevron Stencil.
Then I added layers of Distress Stains and Green Yellow Inka Gold.
I used Stamps with Archival Inks, White Paint, and a White Pen last. See the difference a white pen makes in the contrast on the Typewriter!!!

Add a Trim to the top, layer it onto Black Chipboard and add 3 Wooden Buttons to give a bit of interest.
Simple, Simple, word for the Year!

I've had a few projects lately that I almost scrapped because something was missing. Added some more layers (what could it hurt, right?) and wah-lah! Problem solved. :)

Gorgeous tag. The white pen really hit the spot.

Now you have me singing - "sunrise sunset - sunrise sunset - quickly flow the days" Love the layers and colors Linda.

Hey Linda, maybe simple to you! Lol. I'm loving all of the layers in this and the texture you got from the paste. You art is always very inspiring to me :) Also, since I haven't "spoken" to you in a while, Happy New Year!
