When I listened to a gold shiny object...*winks*


Fine-day

So the other day I was clearing out my old makeup and dropped a Guerlain travel-sized pressed powder on the ground. The gold shiny metal cover stared at me and pleaded, "Use me on a project...don't discard me!"

Now you know, when your art supplies start talking to you, you pay attention and do exactly when they tell you, right? *winks*


Plus, it's gold and shiny. You know I have a thing for gold. And shiny things. *LOL*


Of course, I have a stack of already precut cardboard tags all ready to go (yes, I'm guilty of online shopping *hangs head in shame*).


I adhered the houndstooth patterned paper to the cardboard base and distressed the edges for texture. I also used watered down gesso to tone down the colour.


I added a gold button and some Golden gold mica flakes to tie in with the focal point. I also worked in some of my Echo Park Paper letter stickers. The ribbon with the pearl was reused from retail packaging.

P/s: Do your art supplies speak to you???

The tag looks very pretty :)
My art supplies don't talk to me, I am sure if they did they will blame me for not using them ;)

Yes, pretty, shiny things do have a way of calling my name so I listen and put them in my 'save for someday' boxes. I love looking in those boxes for inspiration. I didn't know that you could buy cardboard tags online...gotta look for them. Thanks for the information and inspiration. Love your tag!

No, I cut the cardboard tags out of cardboard myself from packaging obtained through online shopping.
