These Good Times tags were inspired by my friend Rosalie. She used her packaging to create some amazing mixed media tags which I decided would be a great way to use up my packaging and create some tags myself.
The base of this Good Times tag is from a Prima flowers package and it featured a collage of words printed on it. For the background I used some clear gesso and some modelling paste which creates texture when used with the gears and lattice stencils from Scrapmatts and I have coloured the tag with Antique Gold, Coffee and Turquoise Mists from Kaisercraft. So to finish off I also added the Finnabair mechanical and charms along with Gold Mica powder to colour the metal embellishments.
I completed this project a little while ago but I hadn’t put it on my blog, so I thought I would share it with you.
I was recently sorting my stamp collection and took all my stamps from my wood mounted blocks and turned them into cling back, so they can be used on acrylic blocks.
So I had these wood blocks left over and didn’t want to throw them out, but didn’t know what to do with them.
I wanted to repurposed them in some way and this was the end result.
I cleaned the block to remove the sticky from it and then I covered the block in some travel themed washi tape, I then took some clock embellishments and glued them to the front of the block with glossy accents.
I then used some little glass bottles and stuck them to the top of the block, placed some photo pin holders into the cork tops and took a piece of printed paper with the word journey on it and rolled it up and placed inside the clear bottle, to give me a message in a bottle effect.
This has now been repurposed into a cute little photo holder.
