I've got a new tag to share today created with the Scraps of Elegance August Kit "By the Sea"
Our kits and add ons can be found here
This tag is one of the Ranger measuring about 5 1/4 x 10 1/4. It is a nice big surface that will hold a lot of media and layering!
I used Blue Fern Seaside Cottage as my base layer then added the "Notes From The Sea" cut out from the French Riviera collection.
I have an affinity for these vintage images especially on tags and altered items. This one is Lucy by Kristin Hubick for RetroCafeArt. I like to buy my images unless I can be sure they are copyright free. I never use any from pinterest unless they come from a copyright free source.
The layers are stitched on a sewing machine. I used the beautiful chipboard piece from Blue Fern Studios called the "Seashell Frame". This was found in the Elements Add On you can find it here.
I covered the chipboard in a layer of gesso then I used some crackle mediums on it. I think I applied it improperly though or was too impatient. I ended up without much in the way of crackles but lots of lumpy texture. It's ok because then I painted it with Art Alchemy in Opal Magic Pink Blue. Then I random stamped it and embossed it with Blue Fern embossing powder in Coral. The embossing powder was in the Color Add On found here.
The Creativity Add On contained Blue Fern Studios Seaside Treasures Chipboard found here.
I embossed the starfish with a combination of encrusted jewels and blue fern embossing powders.
We received some beautiful shells in our kit and I painted the once again with with Art Alchemy paint. I used some mica flakes mixed with glitter to spread in the background.
We always get a great selection of florals in the add on here. I usually pile the flowers on. I can't help myself. Then I finish off the bottom with book page fringe!
Thanks a bunch for stopping by!
