August Tag.. Thank you *SEW* much ..

Hello creative Friends, today i'm sharing Augusts Tag using those 12 weeks of prompts.
Tag No:8 oh gosh not many more left before I complete my personal challenge
of creating a different one each month using those very same prompts.

 This post is a scheduled one as I will be away and probably not have much time 
when I return to create or post before September sneaks in.

This tag is created using some goodies I received from Chris recently from a 
swap challenge and I thought they would work hand in hand with this project 
alongside Chris' words of wisdom.

Here in words and pictures is my August*
Thank you *SEW* much tag.

Using an MDF Tag from Chris I first painted in white Gesso, then a coating of Leather Corset from Indigoblu and finally dry brushed on Warm Tan from left to right. When dry I pushed clear modelling paste through a stencil leaving the Handmade script visible.

Strips of Paperartsy lace stamped onto tissue paper have been added as collage 
across the bottom and top with a coating of matt medium.

The whole tag has been coated in a layer of watered down Antique Gold Shimmer and flicks of multi surface white paint flicked on top. Onyx black has been blended through 
a quilt stencil to give effect and the whole tag coated in a layer of clear Gesso
The orange mark is where I scorched it trying to dry it quickly..

Around the edges of the tag I stamped a stitch effect then stamped the dressmakers Manikin that was another gift from Chris onto tissue paper, tore around the edges and adhered using matt medium.

Now it's time to play by adding those doodles and embellishments.

White Posca pen helps highlight areas. buttons and pins add to it's theme and
a touch of gilding wax across the Handmade word brings it to life.

All tied up with a piece of Antique ribbon, Paperartsy words learn to sew 
have been stamped onto tissue and adhered, giving a thought for the day.

My Thank you *SEW* much August Tag is complete.

This has now been turned into a fridge magnet.

Thank you for taking time to pop on over.
Have a fabulous weekend everyone, i'll catch up with your posts and creativity on my return and look forward to sharing more of mine with you all very very soon.

Creative Hugs
