November Tag..

I'm sharing another Tag today using those same prompts given by 
Chris from the mini marvels challenge last year.
Can't believe this is tag number 11, one more till the full 12 completed.

Apologies for the poor photos I will blame it on the lighting..!!

Painting a DaliArt large Tag in white Gesso, I first coated in red paint then 
pearl white scratching into the surface whilst wet with the end of a paint brush.
Modelling paste is pushed through a Dina Wakley stencil in various areas 
of the tag and strips a torn poem page glued on.

Antique Gold translucent paint is wiped all over the tag with Green Shimmer 
paint encouraged to drip from the bottom to top of the tag.
Using a dots Paperbabe Stencil I blended versafine Onyx Black onto the tag.

A coating of clear Gesso seals it ready for stamping.
Using Clarity Journaling stamps with black archival I used a selection to mark make.

I unused a large IndigoBlu Poppy Head previously stamped and 
coloured in pencil as my focal image, with the flower stem added to ground the flower. 

The word November was stamped onto Tissue paper and glued on using matt medium.

With some dots and doodles added to highlight some of the detail.

My November Tag #11 is complete.

I look forward to bringing my #12th and final Tag of 2017
to you all very soon..

Hugs and warm wishes 
Tracey xx

Hey Tracey, you don't have to comment on all my posts.

I am rather sick of making Christmas cards...hugs and thanks anyway for popping in.xx[aNNie]🎄
