Tags

Hi you all! 
Today I have some tags to share.
The first one has been made for the new challenge at Try it on Tuesday,  'create a scene'. Any theme and any style is possible, it just has to be a scene - so you have two weeks to make a scene and enter it!
I used a tag cut from corrugated card, painted and distressed, and with an image from CI added, as well as the little vintage boy image. The shell is not a real one, it has been made in a mould and painted. I added a fish as charm.



I am linking my scene to Crafty Individuals Challenge, anything goes

At Tag tuesday the theme this week is complementary colours. I took purple and yellow, and made 2 tags. The first one has been painted, and stenciled.


The second one is a tag which April gave me already stamped with Frida. I painted the background yellow, coated it with glue and added the yellow glass beads for some texture. I gave Frida two coats of matte varnish, and  mounted it onto a purple tag. The ribbon came from Mexico, from Donna, so fits well to the tag!


Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!

  1. Love your scene, Valerie, you are so inventive, it does look really vintage. Purple and yellow are a great combination, I like them both, but especially the stencilled flower one.

    1. I pressed a real shell into some mold 'n' pour, and then made my shell from plaster of Paris. This way I can make shells to measure, and as they have a flat back, they are easy to stick.

  12. Hey Valerie! After reading your "how to" on your fist tag, I was really taken aback with I saw your tag. For some reason, I was not expecting anything that colorful! Wonderful scene.
    Your second tag is my favorite! The colors are wonderful and the flowers are gorgeous.
    Love the background on your third tag and the ribbon sure is fun!
    I think I shall keep this on my computer for a while to study again.
    I hope you have a good week and it is somewhat cooler where you live!

  13. The shell looks real, but what caught my attention is the vintage boy image as I used that same one in an aceo that I made a few years ago! What are the chances, right?! Anything purple is fabulous in my book! Beautiful work, as usual. Hugs!
