Twelve Tags of Christmas with Loll & Friends 2015

Welcome to Day 8 of the Twelve Tags of Christmas with Loll & Friends!  Loll is such a talented designer and such a sweet person and I feel blessed to call her friend.  This is the second year for Loll’s tag event with 25 guest designers sharing some mixed media inspiration.  If you haven’t been following along with all the tags to this point…check them out here.  And there are prizes…yes prizes! Hope you can find some time to enter!

I likely should have called this tag “go big or go home”.  The base tag is a #12 tag (that’s 5 1/8″ x 10 1/2″).  Someone’s going to get a very large gift this year *grin*.

The tag was covered in some Prima designer paper and the edges were distressed.  Then I added some gold embossing paste through a Prima stencil.  The next size tag was treated in the same manner.  Once everything was dry, I started putting it all together,  again lots of Prima products here…flowers, trim, Finnabair Mechanicals, little tags etc.  Then I added some splatters of Prima Color Bloom in two different shades.  Micro beads and mica flakes were added randomly for even more shine/bling.  I’ve dyed some cheesecloth and some seam binding for the top of the tag and also added a little metal star for the finishing touch.

Here are a few close-ups to show some of the detail:

Loll, thank you so much for inviting me to your fun tag event…I’m honored to be among all the amazing designers you’ve chosen!

  2. STUNNING Lee-Anne! Your tag is filled to the brim with amazing techniques, layers, embellishments … that all work together into this work-of-art in a tag! Seriously talent, my friend!! Thank you so much for joining me again as a Guest Designer for my Twelve Tags of Christmas. xx


  3. Shery's right – this card is 'delicious' Lee-Anne! !! my very first thought – I guess because it is just chock full of loveliness! – with all the wonderful layers and textures – so many fun things to see each time I look back at it! Juila xx
