Capture the Everyday Memories Together

It's time for another Tag!
Gotta love all the layers and colors here. So let's get started!
This is a #10 manila tag that I swiped with several colors of Distress Stains and just a touch of Tarnished Brass. Then I tore 2 triangular pieces of Tissue Paper and glued them over the upper left and lower right corners.
The lower corner really became much more muted over the Seedless Preserves as did the upper left over the Peacock Feather. I wanted the BRIGHTNESS to remain in the center swath of color.
 Here you see the blotches of the metallic Tarnished Brass when shot at an angle.
You also see the next layers of stencils...the Sepia Ink on the Stripes and the Picket Fence  paint on the Eye Chart and Measured.

 I love the gorgeous Script stamp from Typography and the big, bold numbers from Numeric stamp sets.

Just a hint of the Picked Raspberry here on the hand and Ink Bottle. The Scribble is stamped with Red Geranium.
You can also see the Tissue Paper torn edge here and the touch of Tarnished Brass Distress Stain.

Your stenciling doesn't have to make a lot of sense or be extremely detailed, it just helps to break up the color here with the white paint.

I added the little Heart Charm with some black Paper String and used Chit Chat words on black chip board for the sentiment.
More stamping with the Stars around the edges and 3 Pen Nibs painted with Broken China and Tarnished Brass Distress Paint.
The Monocle has a Swivel Clasp, a vintage ribbon, and vintage picture from a sheet of Collage paper.
You can also see the Alphabet stamp here using Sepia Ink under the Monocle contrasting with the Tissue Paper drawings.
I like the title here as Bill and I have been traveling a bit lately and really enjoy taking in the vistas we've been lucky to see together.

Great tag Linda! I really like how you melded the colors and left the center ones much brighter! And your added elements really do bring everything together beautifully!

I stumbled across your tag when I was browsing the Inspiration Emporium blog and had to stop in to tell you how amazing it is! I absolutely adore the colors and how you blended them together. One of my favorite looks is "bright grunge" (if that's possible) and I love how your tag turned out. All of the images are so cleverly combined and I really like how you added dimensional elements like the string and monocle (great photo inside the monocle, by the way)! Thank you so much for helping me feel inspired for the day through your artwork! :)
