Hi everyone and welcome back to my happy place!
This weeks Design Team Project is using these gorgeous "tags" from Imagine if
I knew I wanted to try my first Steam Punk project with these lovely tags!
The first thing to do was cover the front and back in a lovely paper from Graphic45.
Inked all edges with Vintage Photo to give the aged look!
After some thought on how I was going to do this (as my daughter was watching very closely on how I was going to execute "Steam Punk")
I chose a dress form and cogs from Imagine if,
stained, inked and rubbed viva to achieve the effects I wanted.
Also have used the viva on all metal pieces to give them more dimension and interest!
After I attached all my pieces I decided to make a skirt from leftover bits of a bird cage id chopped for another project!
With a selection of fussy cut butterflies, a bodice, and sentiments I was pretty happy with how my tag was looking....but I felt like it needed something else!
Chains! it needed chains....I used a wee flower aged with viva to attach chain then caught it on the bottom of the cage skirt.
To complete this lovely I popped on a zipper top and threaded seam binding through it!
A very special thank you to my friend Jude for the gorjuss papers x
