Feeding My Need for Spring!

Hallo, Lovelies! It feels like forever since I played at Tag Tuesday where the current theme is Spring Is In The Air. I've had a UFAP (UnFinished Art Project) for many months in a shoebox lid with Easter/Spring goodies, so win-win: free up a lid and make a Spring tag!

I decorated both sides of this Easter-themed tag, so my photo has them combined. Same tag - both sides. I used collage sheet images by RetroArt Cafe, Twisted Papers and Dover. Everything else I used is from my Black Hole of Stash: ribbon, gems, chipboard, silk and mulberry flowers, paper scraps.

I began by blending on some Distress Inks in greens. Then I used Tim's Heart-Struck Layering Stencil with Catherine Pooler Peppermint Scrub dye ink. I did this to both sides of the tag.

Here's what both sides looked like after I collaged on some paper layers and before I began adding dimensional stuff.  Do you spy the negative die cut layered behind the chick? :-)

A few close-ups:

Thanks for visiting. I hope your Monday goes well! XOXO

These tags are so stunning, Aimes. As I said before, you manage to fill your space with so much goodness in such a pleasing manner. Collage work is certainly your thing. Now to buy Easter presents, eh?

Such cute, colorful, FUN, retro-vintage creations, Aimes! Those pinky-lavender pearls inside each flower, the bejeweled rhinestone details with the bunny, the brightly cheerful ribbons - no wonder your duckling and Mrs. Bunny are so happy! So cute! hugs, de
