Gorgeous Layered Tags and an Announcement!

 I really wanted to share these beautiful tags I made in a recent class taught by Dianne Mahura who works with the Scrapendipity Gang! If you are in the Calgary, Alberta area there are lots of classes posted on the website as well as a weekly Make 'n Take taught by Holly, which is always a lot of fun! And, of course you can do a bit of shopping Online or in the truck...

Dianne is such a talented mixed media artist! I love how she puts together her projects, and these tags were a lot of fun. We layered on sprays and stains and inks and had lots of fun with all sorts of techniques.

This fun flower was covered with a thin metal tape, diecut, and then embossed with an embossing folder. We added some Ranger Alcohol Ink to give it some pretty colour and added a brad in the center. This is one of those techniques that makes me say "I really need to use this metal tape more"!

I love this globe diecut and the Tim Holtz rub on words on this tag!

The pretty diecut fall leaves and beautiful layers makes this one my favourite!

The heart covered in fabric with a sweet metal charm is lovely!

I love the purples and oranges in this tag. The purple flower is a diecut flower, crumpled up and sprayed with some spray ink! The ribbons on each tag were plain seam binding ribbon, each sprayed with a different colour of ink to coordinate with the tags.

It was neat to see how different each person's tags were even though we were all using the same supplies!
