This is the final section, I think, of the project I am working on right now. Again, the tag is based on this month's Tim Holtz tag.
I was thinking of mending, repurposing, refitting, reusing... making do with what you have. I made a small tag with some dressmaking images, and tools. I started with some washi tape and stamped the dressmaker form on it and embossed the measuring tape. I inked with some pinks and browns, and added a bit of twine ribbon, and some more measuring tape washi tape.
For the base, I inked in various shades of blue and stenciled the damask pattern with gel medium and inked over with some browns. I added a bit of burlap fabric that was also stenciled with a damask print. I layered a little dress form cut out over it and layered over a little measuring tape cut out again. Over that I layered the tag. I added the little mini clothes pin and ticket and glued some random buttons over top. I added stamped sentiment to the ruler.
I added the little die cut word at the bottom, and added a few little metal elements as well.
I am happy how it turned out. Love how the gel medium resists the next layer of ink and shows the colours below, and how the pinks, blues, and browns look together.
Entering this into this week's SSS Wednesday, Anything Goes challenge - wish me luck!
