Sometimes I have an idea in my head for a canvas or another large project and I want to try things out on a smaller scale first. Tags are just perfect for working out colors & ideas and playing with techniques. Before I started this tag, all I knew was that I wanted to use the face image in the upper right.

The next step was to tear out and adhere the stamped quote. You can see that this technique does not create a transparent background, but I really like the subtle visual texture it adds.
So while I was visiting my mother I happened upon this frame at a yard sale and I just knew exactly what to do with it!
I love the way it turned out! Take a peek at these close ups:
I even stenciled a detailed border on the cork board!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today! Susie
