Mini Marvel 12th Tag.. December: Home is where...

Well it's finally here, my 12th and final mini marvel tag creation and I could think of nothing better to create it on but a small wooden tag sent to me from Chris during a mini swap earlier in the year..

Here is tag 12 using those mini prompts.

Covering in Gesso, the tag was painted black. A layer of Sleeping Beauty 
was painted on top and scratched into with the end of the paint brush.

Modelling paste was pushed through a dots Stencil and strips of rice paper glued on using matt medium. Pearl Shimmer paint tones the colour down along with dots of black gesso. 

White Gesso is dabbed through a mini snowflake tree stencil and covered in clear 
Gesso when dry. Stamped script helps to break up the white and shimmer layers.

Unused stamped and coloured stampendous houses are 
glued to the tag making a fine Focal image.

Embellished with stickles glitter glue and a very sweet Christmas Tree Charm.

A sentiment stamped from the very same stamp set 
completes my 12th Mini Marvel tag of 2017.

This one hangs perfectly on my Christmas Tree.

I've really enjoyed recreating each month using those prompts 
although I did miss the spontaneity that the very first tag gave.

Thank you to those that have followed my years journey and
to those that have popped in along the way but big Thanks goes to Chris
whom without those prompts my 12 Tags 
personal journey would never have begun.

**Thank YOU**

Creative Hugs and Warm Wishes

You are so sweet Sue, my Tree is full of handmade ornaments. Had a new Tree last year after having my previous one for 18 years. I was so sad when It went to Christmas Tree Heaven but the new one is a foot taller so there's now even more space to fill with handmades xx
