I love the word “if”. I find it to be one of the most thought pro­vok­ing words and thought it worked per­fect­ly for this tag. If I had not final­ly giv­en in to my deep desire of play­ing with wax I would have nev­er found out just how much I tru­ly love this art form.

I start­ed this tag with one I blend­ed ink and dabbed mist here and there as well as stamped the lady from “Soci­ety Lady” stamp set using Jet Black Archival Ink. Then using a Clover iron melt­ed three dif­fer­ent shades of green on top of the tag. Using the hot iron I spread the wax over the entire tag as well as swept some areas of the wax away show­ing the ink, mist and stamped areas.

Once the base of the tag was as I want­ed I dripped yel­low pol­ka dots, added strips of book pages and sheet music as well as chip­board let­ters, a wood­en but­ter­fly sprin­kled with sil­ver glass glit­ter and embroi­dery patch. You will also see in the top pho­to that I added of course pearls and some vin­tage trim that I encased in nat­ur­al bees wax.

I’m look­ing for­ward to my class “Art Requires Courage” tomor­row, at The Crafty Scrap­per. I only have 2 open­ings left.
