Art in a small form – 3 takes on a tag

Art doesn’t always need to be big in format to be effective or send the message. Sometimes, the small form is enough to pass onto the audience what the artist wanted to express.
Three of our Crew members, decided to try their skills in what we called… 3 takes on tag.

Assemble tags with assorted scraps of 7gypsies pattern papers, Canvas Corp Chicken Wire strips, burlap, twine and flowers. Paint over the image with Golden Goddess Glimmer Glam.

Cut papers to fit tag, painting additional color as needed. Add a piece of burlap and place the image on top.
Finish with flowers and a brad. Wrap twine around the flowers and separate the layers.

I am a mixed media crafter with passion for layers and textures. Architextures are my new love and I can feel the relationship going from strength to strength in the foreseeable future. I have worked with CCB since January 2017 and it felt like home straight away. The team is amazing and the crafting products are even better, which makes it perfect combination and an amazing place to be.
