back to another blog post, work has been crazy and we are now getting chickens and goats. The weather has been gorgeous, so I have been trying to get as many chores done as I can. I found a little time one morning to create a set of tags for a coworker transitioning jobs.

This is a set of tags. I chose to use an industreial paper pack and mess around with e some background techniques. Once I adhered the paper to the tag a quick layer of clear gesso. I then started with the distressed checkered stencil and a liberal layer of crackle paint. Once that dried I used the distressed grid stencil and a metallic modelling paste randomly on the background.

Once the pastes were dry I used Lindys spray to blend a and enhance the crackle paste. Using the ideas light bulbs and paper clip chipboard I gathered a variety of embossing powders.

I embossed the light bulbs and paper clips and gathered other medal embellishments before starting the layering process,.

I cut a few scraps of paper and ink distressed the edges, and start to layer. I add burlap, the chipboard and a wooden ruler to each tag.

Once everything was glued down I dyed seam binding to match the tags. A perfect tag set in the industrial style. I hope you enjoy. Thank you for stopping by. Happy crafting.
