The last few days have really been CRUNCH time, trying to get everything ready for my daughter's departure to college. There are 6 large suitcases and duffel bags out, being filled with WAY too much stuff....I think she is in for a rude awakening next week when she tries to fit all of her things into her T-I-N-Y dorm room! We leave in a week. Gulp. So much to do, so little time...
Which is why I have NO business making crafty little tags for the tag challenge I've decided to join over at Tag Tuesday.
...but I find that when I have way
too much to do, I always like a little distraction (do you like the way I'm justifying my procrastination?!?). These are tags I made for the last two weeks' challenges:
|This week, the challenge is "Complementary Colors", and I chose to do a blue/orange tag. I colored a print of a vintage image of twin girls, using Prismacolor pencils (which work so well on matte photo paper, look rich, and are very blendable).|
|Each girl holds a complementary-colored butterfly (cutting around the girls' thumbs was a challenge!), and the perfectly two-toned butterfly was added at the top. I only glued them at the center, so the wings could be folded up a bit for some dimension.|
|Last week , the
theme was "Wedding", so I made this frothy little concoction. Played
around in Photoshop to invert a fancy clip art frame and lettering to
white on dove grey. I cut out the inside of the frame and behind it, added a
vintage photo from The Graphics Fairy. I found that pretty lace on some ugly garment at Goodwill, and have had it in my stash of goodies for a while.|
And now, back to PACKING.....
|I made a teeny-tiny bouquet out of some ribbon roses, then added a few rhinestones for sparkle. |
