Smile and Laugh – Patricia Basson

to everyone that is celebrating today 
Love Jennifer and the Dusty Team 

Hi and Hello again Blog friends….

Today I share two Tags created for Dusty Attic this month. I really love making Tags for it is the perfect size to play around with all kinds of techniques and products. It often happens that I use something that worked on a Tag later on a Page.

I started by using 13 Arts A4 Paper from the Amour collection, not that much of it was visible after all the media, but I know it was there….Lol…

I used the Metal Plate Stencil on the backgound with 13Arts Modeling paste colored with  Americano Vivid Vintage paint. I needed some texture for the inks to puddle in and the stenciling gave me the perfect texture. I used Yellow Amber Ink and Pink Rainbow Color Powder. The edges were inked with some Black Splash Ink. 

This Decorative Frame just stays a firm favorite of mine! Here I layered the smaller one on the large one, love the design effect one achieves by layering the different Chipboard designs! After a light Gesso coat, I colored it with Vivid Green and Olive Green Paints. I finished it of with some Old Silver Glitter Splash ink.

The Vine Frame was treated the same as the Decorative Frame. I  kept the negative inside of the Lacey Heart Frame…Loved the Distressed look it gave to the very delicate frame….I treated the frame with Scarlet Ink and Crystal Bordeaux Glitter Splash Ink. 
A crochet Doily, some Black Glitter, a little wax and sisal adds the final touches to my Tags.

I hope you enjoyed this project…To view the products I used , please follow the link to the well stocked Dusty Attic On-line store….

Let my soul smile through my heart
 and my heart smile through my eyes,
 that I may scatter rich smiles
 in sad hearts.
