It's Jeanne, and this week I'm back with these large chipboard tags I created using Graphic 45's Life's A Journey Collection. I love creating tags to give just as a gift or make it into a card.
I created this set of 2 large chipboard tags using these beautiful papers. As mentioned in my previous post, I gradually got comfortable creating with this paper collection so when choosing the papers for this project, I didn't want it too colorful so papers from both 12x12 sets were used on these tags.
I began but cutting two pieces of chipboard at 4x8, I then used Vintage Photo distress ink as well as Black Soot distress ink around the edges of the tag. I selected papers from the I Want It All Bundle for these tags. Although this collection is very colorful , I wanted to create these with the more neutral colors .
Once I was done adhering the papers on my tags, I finalized it using some laces andfew flowers and one one tag I did add pearls in and around my flowers.
I love to layer on what ever projects I create. I feel like it adds an additional interest and dimension to my projects. Don't worry about covering up items such as lace because you can always leave areas where they peek thru. It always fun to break down and see all of the detail of everyone's project so therefore that gave me the idea of creating projects like that.
I do hope that you enjoyed this short post that I created today. I hope that you are inspired to create your own tags even cards using some layering methods and perhaps sneaking in some surprise elements into your projects. It makes them that much more interesting just like your own personality!! See you all next week with another project!! ~Hugs~ Jeanne
