Good morning, Creative Embellishments fans!

Sandi  here with you today sharing an Oversized Tag, one of my absolute favorite sizes to work with. These Tags are 5.5 by 10 inches so there is plenty of room for creating!

To cover the Tag I’ve used a couple of papers from 49 and Market’s Everywhere collection, tearing and then layering them. The back side of the Tag was left raw although I wish I’d added paper there as well in the event I wish to gift this and add a signature. The sweet photo is of a grandson and his wife.

Next I looked through my stash for some frames to bring the eye to my focal point. While I opted to use the awesome Twig Frame with Fall Leaves to encircle my photo, I was tickled to also use our Sun Frame which is new to me. I’ve altered it with paint and added it beneath my photo and flowers.


The Sun Frame was altered with Tim Holtz Distress Wild Honey Paint along with some Distress Rusty Hinge Ink brushed along the edges. Love how it turned out! The Twig Frame was altered with Walnut Stain. I set aside the Fall Leaves for another time.


After adhering the Sun Frame to the covered Tag, I added 3 medium to large 49 and Market florals on top to support my photo along with small pieces of cardboard to help in supporting the weight of the photo. After I added my photo, I added the Twig Frame, then set about doing my finishing details. This was a mix of smaller florals, buds, ephemera, art stones and white splattered paint. I went a little wild with my paint this time, despite covering my photo.

Before I began gluing everything down, I used a rub-on from the Everywhere collection that says “I’d go anywhere and everywhere with you.” I felt that was perfect for these two adventuresome lovebirds!

Thanks for dropping by the Creative Embellishments blog today!

See you next time!
