Tag You're It #61 - REMINDER


Happy Friday!
Well here we are the 2nd of December and I imagine the next few weeks are going to fly by!

I know that November flew right on by for me with the 25 Days of Christmas Tags event. As I write this post tonight the link up will be closing for those of you who are participating on December 2nd at 12:00 pm EST! I am just absolutely floored that as of midnight Thursday there have already been 477 awesome tags submitted! Will we make 500?

This is the reminder post for Tag You're It #61 where we have Loll Thompson as our Featured Artist! One of the things I love about this crafting community is how we learn from one another. I am still learning about ink blending and using bold colours scares me to death but when I saw Loll's gorgeous ink blending I had to try this fabulous colour combination using her tag as my guide. I absolutely love all the texture on her mixed media tag but I kept mine pretty simple because that is a bird I will tackle another time!

I started off by white embossing my tree image on a white tag and then I blended the same Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers that Loll used. Then I finished it off with another layer for my snow bank, stamped my sentiment and finished it off with a few silver Stickles filled sequins and some pretty white ribbon.

You still have until Wednesday morning 9:00 am EST to play along.

Have a fabulous weekend!
