Dreaming of great big things

Here's an artsy tag:

  • Library catalog card base pasted over a long time ago with Ranger's transparent glossy modeling paste through a stencil made using Tim's Mixed-Media die set #1
  • Recently, I coated the tag with Peacock Feathers DOx and scribbled one end with Mustard Seed Distress Crayon  which- duh- made the green color.
  • A day later, I had both black and white Liquitex gesso out for another project and used the excess on this, applying it with both my fingers and an old key-card.  You can see where I did some scraping also while I was on the phone just mindlessly messing around.
  • A few days ago I finished this up.  First, I added Glossy Accents around the edges and added Recollections micro-beads in Ebony... it looks like tint caviar!  This is my new fave supply.  Better than glitter.
  • The puffy heart stickers were found at Tuesday Morning the same day I found the micro-beads.  They are by Bella Blvd.
  •  The quote is from my snippet tin and it was adhered with white Liquitex gesso.
  • The last thing I did was add the inked seam binding that came with my last purchase from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
