Graphic 45 - Expanding Square Tag Album


Dropping by today to share a project today created for Graphic 45. When I saw the new range of square tags I couldn't wait to create something with them. The idea for this little album project come to me while I was doing some filing and thought maybe I could create an expanding mini album using the square tags. So I set out to do so and love how it finished up.

Expanding Square Tag Album

Lots of gorgeous fussy cut Time To Flourish collection on the cover.

Who said work couldn't be inspiring?

Inside sits 5 tag album pages. Each tag has a place for a photo and journaling.

On the back of each tag I have created pockets for extra storage.

I love these word tags, this one worked perfect for the cover of my album.

Prima - Caged Heart

Hi Guys!

Quick post today to share a necklace pendant that I created using Relics & Artifacts Flaming Hearts.

'Caged Heart'

I never throw away old dress jewellery as you never know when it will come in handy.

The base of my pendant is one of the stunning Relics & Artifacts Flaming Hearts and to it I added some old jewellery pieces.

I painted the heart with black gesso and then added red paint to the heart shaped centre. I wanted the heart to be visible through the cage.

I applied soft gloss gel to stick the chains and finer details down.

#941567 Relics & Artifacts Flaming Hearts Ex.1 Votos
#962999 Art Basics Soft Gloss Gel
#962968 Art Basics Black Gesso
#962746 Art Ingredients Glass Glitter Crimson Red

Other - Ribbon, Old Jewellery Pieces.
