Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge - Day 28

It's Day 28 of the Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay challenge.  It's the last day of using household items.  I've used a jiffy bag, cardboard and a page from an old book for my household items.

For my tag, I have used the paper side of a jiffy bag.  I scrunched up the paper and then smoothed it a little and inked the surface so that the crease lines were inked up, using "Paprika: Elements Inks.  I then glued the paper on to a tag and trimmed the excess off.  I then inked the edge of the tag with the same ink and then with Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink.

I then used some sheets from an old hymn book, using both the music notes and the text.  Tearing into smaller piees, then adding a bit of colour using various inks.  I then glued the paper fragments into position.

I used the "Paprika" Elements Inks again, this time through the dotty end of the Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous stencil with a reference of THMM101.

I splattered black and white paint over the surface of the tag using Posca Pens. I then mounted the tag on to red card.

I rummaged through my stash of pre cut die cuts and found a couple of hearts.  I stuck the large heart in the middle of the heart.  I had a small off cut of cardboard with the corrugation exposed so I gave it a coat of Gesso, when dry, I then rubbed some "Paprika" Elements Inks over the raised edges, then stuck it horizontally in the middle of the tag.

Finally, over the top of the cardboard, I added another die cut heart from my stash and added a small button in the middle and then added some dots of Ranger black Enamel Accents across the surface of the tag.
