Recently, my niece posted a quote by James Austin to her Facebook page. The quote was very thought provoking and can have many meanings. So when I was thinking about what I wanted to make for this challenge I decided to use that quote on my tag.
I used plastic packaging for my upcycled element and cut lots of gears using Tim's large die and the smaller movers and shapers dies. Then I colored the gears on both sides using alcohol inks in bright colors. The tag was stamped with numbers from the Numeric stamp set in Antique Linen. I used the spritz and flick technique and then distressed the edge of the tag with Brushed Corduroy ink. Then it was just a matter of stacking and assembling the die cut gears along with some metal Idea-ology gears and long fasteners. The quote was added using the new Label Letters.
I hope you like my tag! And I hope you'll join the challenge and post your own upcycled project for us to see! Thanks for stopping by!
The following items that I used on my project can be found at The Funkie Junkie Boutique! The boutique offers it's merchandise at up to a 20% discount from the typical retail price! That's a great deal and you should check it out!!
