Beautiful Sea Maiden Large Tag

Standard

Hello there and happy Sunday friends! I’m going a bit mixed media today with a nautical inspired large tag. I dug deep in the chippies and came out with so many great pieces to layer up. I’m using the gorgeous Sea Maiden collection from Authentique Papers and ribbons and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I’m all about the texture that  the layering adds.

Alternating the finishes also adds loads of detail.  Some are glittery and some are super smooth.

I’m even using them to extend the flower arrangements.

You can add a metallic look by topping off the chippies with shiny embossing powder and heat setting them…now they look like little metal charms : )

Taking advantage of gaps in the chippie layers I’ve added Prills and sequins for a very pulled together look.
I’ve selected beachy themed chippies and flourishes here to start the arrangement.  Wiping them down with a soft cloth is a great way to prepare the surfaces for their final finishes.  I’ve used embossing powders to maintain a super clean crisp edge.

I couldn’t help myself but add a few more to the mix. Those bronze colored waves are really taking the nautical theme to another level!!!

  1. What a beautiful tag! I have ordered some pieces from this Authentique collection and am just waiting for them to arrive. But then again, who can resist ANY Authentique collection?!?! ;). I am always in awe of the wonderful ways that you alter your chipboard pieces. These are fabulous! I am intrigued by the little prills. Could you please tell me where you find them? They are so delicate and add such a neat touch!

    Have a wonderful day!

  2. Love the sand dollars!! This is the most layered chippy piece I’ve seen…each carefully placed to best advantage. Very pleasing colors. Well done!
