September Tag: Let's sleep...

Hello everyone, I seem to be cutting it very fine with these monthly Tags
it seems that as soon as the month arrives it fades just as quickly.

Today i'm sharing tag number #9 using the same prompts used
 each month for those of you that may have been following.

Here in words and pictures is my September Tag:

Covered in a coat of clear gesso, leather corset and warm tan acrylic paint,
modelling paste has been pushed through the Big Floral Stencil.

Paper feathers have been added as collage and coated in matt medium,
Pearl shimmer paint is painted all over and Gold paint allowed to drip down the Tag.

Black Soot Distress Oxide has added more detail rubbed through the Faded dots stencil.
A gentle application of clear Gesso seals most of the design without moving it too much.

Stamps from Card-io's blown away set are stamped on using Archival leaf green.

I found a very Quirky Owl image in a free papers booklet from 
Making Cards February 2017 edition, the same place I found the feathers.

Cut out I adhered the Owl to the bottom of the tag as I wanted 
to keep some of the Big Floral stencil visible.

A few doodles bring out the details on the feathers, a found sentiment from Tim Holtz Chit Chat book *Let's sleep under the stars*, along with some fibres and a gem or two..

 The final touches are ready to be added.

With the addition of glossy accent eyes
My September Tag is now complete:

Can't believe I managed to complete this without even a hint of gilding wax!!
Only three more to go until my full year's worth is complete.

Thank you for sticking around everyone.

Wishing you all warm hugs and lots of creativity.
Tracey xx

Oh my gosh, Tracey! This is incredible! You have worked your magic yet again and I'm so loving your owl creations. Hugs, Autumn

Such a gorgeous prepared background for your owl, Tracey.I love it and the gold paint dripping looks fantastic. Also MR Owl, has a wonderful charm, and caught my eyes at once, together with your beautiful feathers. The tag and yarns on top makes the last amazing details.
Hugs, Dorthe, xx

Bless you Autumn, they are so appealing creatures and I do not know many people that have not got a soft spot for them (apart from my Mother!!) xx

Thank you dearest Dorthe, I was really drawn to his colours and quirky nature, it's probably why I had not used him. He seemed perfect for this tag xx
