12 Tags of Christmas - Day 4

Well I am all out of sequence with Tim's tags, I have managed day 3 and 4 so far, but love making them and learning more new techniques.

This tag has needed me to improvise quite alot to get the effects needed.

I didn't have the facets so I used a fragment, the beads have come off of necklaces, out of my bead box and the clear one is a Christmas jewel for scattering on the dinner table. I also don't have any bling flourishes, so I cut some cellophane paper and stuck it over a stamped flourish and followed the design to make my own. I cut the flourish out and stuck it down with glossy accents. I shall certainly go to Michael's when I go to New York to get some bling on a roll, again I improvised, I used double sided sticky tape to put my jewels, pearls and beads on and then sprinkled glamour dust over it to help it sparkle. So with some lace died as per Tim's instructions and a blue paper clip I got my tag done.

I so want to make some more of these - and I am sure improvisation will be the name of the game - but hey-ho it stretches the little grey cells and challenges the creativity.

Hope to see you soon.

I love a bit of bling. If I was one of 'those' ladies, (you know what I mean), I could so easily be tempted and or bought by a bit of spangle!!!!

Hi Brenda

This is brilliant. We all get sucked in by having to have everything going, but you have proved very conclusively that it is very easy to improvise.


PS: Thank you for the template. I have to get my mind going again, lost a bit of my mojo at the moment!
