Shabby Chic Bouquet – Oversized Tags

Hello everyone! My name is Jenn DuBell and I am very excited today to share my very first project as a member of the Little Birdie Design Team!
For this project, I have made two oversized tags using the beautiful “Shabby Chic Bouquet” papers and flowers along with some chipboard and other bits from my stash.

Here is how I created my tags:
First, I covered two large tags with a woodgrain decorative paper. Distressed the edges and and then inked them. Prepped the background by applying a layer of clear gesso. Next, I used a stencil to add a pattern to my background with Texture Paste.

Next added inks and sprays to the dry texture paste with water and moved to allow the colors to flow. Dried it with a heat tool.

Next, added some stamping in black ink using various texture stamps.

When creating with fussy cuts and other bits I like to lay them all out on my tag first and move them around until I get the composition I want. Once I have it, I begin adding the pieces with adhesive and foam squares to create depth and texture.

I added a second even larger black tag under them as contrast. I used a white ink pen to make a stitched doodle around the edge of each black tag.
