Good morning, Creative Embellishments fans!

Sandi Clarkson here with you today sharing my newest Oversized Tag for the CE Design Team.

Love these Oversized Tags which are roughly 5.5 inched by 10 inches providing just the right amount of space to play on without the commitment of doing a 12×12. I am finding that I enjoy this smaller platform to doing the always popular12x12 layout.

I began by covering the Large Tags with papers from 13 Arts Dreamland collection. I also used this collection for my photo mat along with some accompanying die cut ephemera.

I hadn’t really used one of the 6×6 panels in a while, so I grabbed the Harlequin Lattice as one of my focal layers and painted it with Tim Holtz Wild Honey distress paint. In fact, all my chippys were painted with that medium except for the Wavy Film Strips which I painted with TH Rustic Wilderness.  Additionally, I did tuck in one leftover piece from the Intricate Twist which was covered with TH Wild Honey Oxide and Crackling Campfire Oxide.

I’ve always been a fan of the Wavy Film Strips and think they make a nice vertical layering piece.

Then it was a matter of layering and tucking things in here and there.
And I love, love the Heartbeat Border.
The photo collage is of my husband and myself a few years ago.
He has gained his weight back but he is sadly very ill right now.
I finished with pearls, gold microbeads and crinkle ribbon.
No splattering this time!
Here are some more close-ups:
That’s it for today’s post!
See you soon …
