I recently purchased some of the Julie Nutting Mixed Media Dolls and wanted to create with them!! I decided to make a tag that I could use as an embellishment on a scrapbook page. The colors in the Dream Big collection from Quick Quotes were a match for my daughter's school picture! Perfect starting point!
I began by tracing a tag from my stash onto Dream Big 400 so that the stripes ran diagonally.
Next I reached for the Chevron Stencil from Want2Scrap and the Carribean Blue PowderPuff Chalking Ink. I shifted the stencil after the first application of ink so that the pattern lined up to create a diamond lattice when I inked a second time.
I paper pieced the doll by stamping her on multiple papers: the main body is Dusty Road 400, the dress is Dream Big, and the sash and tiara are from Calypso 200.
I used Java Powderpuff Chalking Ink for her hair and created the band of jewels with the Want2Scrap 72 Count Orange Rhinestones.
I added a sentiment from the Sheer Joy Chipboard Die Cuts and dressed up one of the designs on the paper with Want2Scrap 72 CountTurquiose Rhinestones.
Want2Scrap because you get 4 different sizes of rhinestones in each pack!
Here's another look at the finished tag.
To create the base of the layout, I started with black cardstock and layerd on the yellow side of Dream Big 300. I added a doily in the upper left corner of the layout. Before I adhered it in place, I inked the edge with Carribean Blue and Orange Slice PowderPuff Chalking Inks. The "Dream Big" banner is from Calypso 500.
The last thing I added was the title...a fun mix of dimensional alphas and little word stickers from my stash!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today! Susie
