CCC #15 - Edited with new photos

Week 15 is winding down on L3 Studios Compendium of Curiosities challenge! I have played with the technique a couple of times this week and had lots of fun!   Week 16 (begins Monday, September 27) promises to be another fun week!  Hop on over and take a look at Linda's blog if you haven't already.

I am working on finishing our door signs (yes, plural as in 2 of them).  We didn't want to have to decide who got to keep it, so we are making 2!    We used Tim Holtz' and Jennifer McGuire's Chaos Tags as inspiration for our sign. Instead of each of us doing our own, Charlene and I have worked on various parts of it for the last month or so.  For the last tag we needed a photograph of the 2 of us.  We had a specific location on where we wanted the picture taken.  Yesterday was the first day we were able to get together for the picture.

I volunteered to finish the last set of tags (there are 10 sets in all).  Let's just say the day did not go as I expected it too. 

As of 4:30 (PDT), 2 1/2 hours before the CCC deadline, I have the tag background completed, which is using the technique for the challenge.   I will probably have the tags completed before the deadline, but I was starting to stress myself out.  To eliminate the stress I decided to post the "bare" tags.  So here they are:
The top is for Charlene's board and the bottom one is for mine (They both look better in person).  Once I get them finished, I will add pictures of the "transformed" tags!

Hope you have a fabulous week!


EDITED PORTION:  The tags are finished. . . .sorta. . . as I was uploading the photos I realized I did not put leaves on my tag and the Gloss Accents that is attaching the flowers is not quite dry, but it's getting there!

Now to go put the door signs together!  Sounds like another post to me! 

Take care!

  5. Stunning agate Linda. Soon time for your cruise, expect you are so excited. x

  6. Linda, you know you're an artist when your bare tags are museum-worthy gorgeous like these are! Wow, does that AI Agate ever look amazing on the embossed grunge! And the finished tags are absolute masterpieces! The photo is truly wonderful, and the flower and jewels and butterflies are so feminine and lovely. The ticket is the PERFECT finishing touch, too!

    I'm so excited for you I almost feel like I get to go myself (not quite, but almost)! Have a magnificent time, sweet friend!
