Tattered and Torn

For the current week's challenge I got to do some things I just love to do, like tear paper and layer it.  I decided to work with neutrals.  This page includes: blank sheet music paper, vintage wallpaper, book page, receipt, ledger page -- all old -- and then Bird Song tissue from 7 Gypsies, which is "new."
Besides gluing on ephemera, I did some stamping.  I really like a stamp I have that creates dots randomly -- to look like foxing on old paper; can you see it, above?  I also stamped the word, TORN at the bottom of this tag.  It's a great word.
And I decided to do a play on the alliterative T & T of tattered and torn by sneaking in another favorite: P & P.  I finished it off with some roughly torn cotton fabric for the trim and the ribbon. Thank you for another fun challenge!

  16. This tag is one of my faves--from the use of the neutrals and beautiful layering to incorporating a little of Pride and Prejudice--can never get enough of that. It just looks so touchable too! Love it! ♥ Sandy Leigh
