When Tim Holtz came out with his Fleur de Lis & Eiffel Tower Alterations die I fell in love. I knew this die would take me to new places on my creative journey. Yesterday it was the inspiration for my tag. This was one of those projects where I couldn't help but be excited the whole way through because my creative journey just grew and grew on this one.
I'll try to keep my post short but I am going to include lots of picture on this one so you can see all my techniques and products that I used and there was a lot for such a small project. Here we go:
First off I started with a blank tag and a pretty little piece of paper from Recollections. I glued the paper down using Tombow Multi Mono liquid glue. This is my go to glue for almost everything.
Once all the pieces were prepared I built the tag in layers. First was the stained ribbon. Then the Eiffel tower and Fleur de Lis. I attached these using my Tim Holtz mini attacher (this is the most amazing tool ever). I then attached the feather. I glued down the frame, Paris and bottle cap with Zip Dry glue. Great stuff but use in a well ventilated area as this glue has a strong odor. Next I attached the metal "wander" tag and a tiny little key (in behind) onto the ribbon. I tied the ribbon onto the tag and voila! Tres chic!
This was a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy looking at it and following my tutorial! As always please feel free to ask me any questions about my steps or products that I used.
Head on over to the Simon Says Stamp Blog for Monday's challenge entitled Journey. This is my take on the challenge.
After looking at the picture up on my blog I decided I needed to move the feather to the middle center of the tag to fill up the empty space. I like it much better there :-)
