Shoes

Wow, this was a difficult challenge for me!  This tag had a mind of its own, and it took me on a journey with ink and paint and hairspray and stamps and punches and glue and die cuts and dictionary pages and ribbon and buttons and a paper frame (whew!) and ended up looking very typically Victorian. Overall, I liked it once I hung it on a bottle and mounted it on a cast-iron stand. The flowers were tedious creations made from dictionary pages, and did you notice the shoe words dictionary page inside the frame?
Thanks for the kind comments you leave each week. I'm looking forward to seeing all your wonderful creations.

  15. Fabulous tag, Laura. We both used the same image, but our tags are very different. It is great the way you have used the dictionary page and put it all within a frame.

  18. Scrumptious, Laura! All the work you put into it is quite evident, for sure! And I love the snappy striped ribbon..it adds a neat graphic punch to all the floral and layered textures.
