12 tags of 2012 --May

Well I've sure been neglecting by blog recently it's been over a month since I've posted anything.It's been busy with crops and classes. I have completed my tag for April but just didn't get around to posting it and now it's May . So last evening I decided to make my tag for this month and get it posted. I applied glue and seal to the tag (since I didn't have the glue stick that Tim used) and took some tissue paper from and old pattern and scrunched it up over the tag . I stamp a flourish in the new Peacock Feathers DI on the sticky back canvas dress form ,added some lace and tag. To make my faux porcelain I used tiny fabric roses which I dipped twice in the melted UTEE.I didn't have a wooden spool so had to cut a plastic one which I covered with some measuring tape sticker to hide the rough edges . To complete the tag I added some sewing embellishments and twill measuring tape on the bottom of the tag . Thanks for looking
I'm entering this in the 12 tags of 2012

Lovely tag - some clever improvisation there, I especially like the use of old pattern paper and the reel covered in tape measure. Elizabeth x

Hi Marilyn: I'm glad I got to see this tag "in real life". There is so much texture from all the embellies, and I love the way your "faux porcelaine" flowers turned out. Wonderful tag!

Oh, Oh, Oh, I love this tag! What a pretty dress and the sewing embellishments are great! Those are some of the prettiest flowers! I finally got mine done, but did not go with a sewing theme. Have a great day!
