Today I just wanted to share the tag I made for Tim's 12 Tags of 2015.
This was a lot of fun to make and I did some improvising along the way, making what I have on-hand, work for the project. The is actually the most fun part sometimes :)
You can see all the lovely entries and the challenge HERE at Tim's blog.
And this is my entry. I hope you like it!

I used matte medium to adhere the pieces to the tag and a thin coat over the top to lock it down. I really like how it dried so soft and non-tacky.
I used Picket Fence Distress Paint along the edges and across some parts to lighten it up, parts seemed a bit dark. Once dry, I added another layer of matte medium. Once this layer dried, I darkened the edges, love how it brought in more depth!
I cut the heart from felt using a Sizzix mini heart movers die. I attached it using the Idea-ology long fastener. The crinkly ribbon I colored with Distress Ink Tea Dye one of my new favorite colors.
I cut the flower using a Holtz Tattered Floral die from metal tape. I embossed it with the chicken wire folder. It is painted with Black Soot Distress Paint. I used some Holtz Rub-ons for the arrows and "choose joy". I love polka dots so I had to include them somehow. This dotted ribbon is actually seem binding.
I am really happy with this tag, I love how it came togther.
Anxious to hear what you think, too!
Have a super day!
