Tag Along With Me

Recently the topic of ATC Swaps {artist trading cards} came up in a forum I belong to and I decided that I would love to participate in something like that...only with a bit of a twist.  I want to trade TAGS with one person from every Country...start a collection of works from around the world!  When I posted my idea,  one of the {kind} ladies {we'll call her 'P'}, expressed that she would LOVE to be my USA tag {I might decide to do every {US} State and Canadian Province...haven't decided, yet}.  So, I quickly {and excitedly} started to create my tag, to be sent to P, and here is what I came up with!
{'I feel like a tiny bird with a BIG song'}

{the backside}
The printed paper it My Mind's Eye and the sentiment was printed on the paper {that's how it came}, the sweet, diecut bird is from Just Imagine Crafts and has been glittered to the extreme. I added some light modelling compound to add some texture and ran some white gesso over it. I made the {beaded} tassel from my ever-growing bead collection {I have ALWAYS had a love for pretty beads...and jewelry} and attached it with a pretty, blue bow {stolen while I was visiting my Ma...THANKS MA!}.  I sprayed the tag with KRYLON Stays Clear {yes, the outdoor paint}.

Stop by the Just Imagine Crafts Blog
