The final 12 Days of Christmas challenge over at Swirlydoos was a giant tag. OK, I can tag.
I started by cutting my 20 x 10 tag from Basic Grey Jovial. I bought this because it was such a lovely bright colour and I thought it would make great summer projects, until I noticed it had 'I saw three ships come sailing....' printed all over! Ah well, maybe no one will notice. Or I can just use it for a Christmas project. My second layer is Do-crafts Chronology paper. I inked round both layers with chalk ink.
I've used a Basic Grey chipboard bauble. I covered it in crinkled tissue paper and painted it with gesso. I added the gesso quite thick at the top to give it a snowy texture. Then I sprayed it with Smooch Spritz Log Cabin. Oops, that's a bit darker than I was expecting. Lighten up, lighten up, lighten up. Well, maybe a little bit and ooh sparkly bits. I added some stickers for a bit of bling. You all know by now that's Merry Christmas in Norwegian don't you..........
I added some lace behind the bauble and some fancy fibers from the bauble to the top and then added some more for the tie. There's a lovely little star from Storyteller there as well, peeking out of the fluff.
