Amour . Love makes the world go round

So much fun to be had this month with the theme of 'Love Makes The World Go Round' at Altered Pages. This is my second piece using the theme and I had a ball creating a tag this time. I chose cream, gold and chocolate as the color theme and went and from there. 

First, I cut some card into the shape of a tag and punched a hole in it using the hole tool.  You could use a manila tag for the base.

I randomly inked the textured card with brown ink.   I wanted a little more of a chocolate tone of brown so I used some mica paint through a mask in a couple of random places on the tag.


I chose this image from the collage sheet. Adhered it to the tag with tacky glue.

I added some cream lace. Inked the edges of the tag,  then added some Platinum Stickles all around the edges. Add a little bow made from burlap fabric shaped, tied and edged with Platinum Stickles. Finally, I added a little jewel embellishment and finally added ribbon. 

TIP -- If I do not have the right color ribbon I color ribbons with a marker in the tone I want.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
