Live, Laugh, Love Tag Trio - FabScraps Guest Designer

Live Laugh Love Mixed Media Lavender Breeze Tag Trio by Dana Tatar for FabScraps

Hi! I'm sharing a shabby chic tag trio that I created for FabScraps today. I used the older, but still so beautiful, Lavender Breeze collection. I had a great time playing with texture and building layers on these tags. I used a similar design for each tag, only changing the chipboard letters between designs, so it didn't take much longer to make three tags rather than just one.

Lavender Breeze Card Kit (MC96 001A)
Lavender Breeze Love Chipboard (DC96 002)
Lavender Breeze Dream Chipboard (DC96 004)
Lavender Breeze Life Chipboard (DC96 005)
Lavender Breeze Laugh Chipboard (DC96 005)
Lavender Breeze Heart Pattern Stencil (DS 072)

1. Brush a layer of gesso over the tags. Let dry. Place the Heart Pattern stencil over the tags and spread molding paste over the top. Remove the stencil and spray tags with purple mist. Let dry.

2. Tear a 6x6 piece of Whisper patterned paper into strips and glue onto the tags, lavender bunch side up. Glue corrugated cardboard pieces onto the center of the tags.

3. Glue leaves, flowers, and lace onto the top half of the tags.

4. Borrow an A from the Dream Chipboard. Cut out the middle part of the letter to create a V. Swap the letter F from the Life Chipboard with the V to spell LIVE. Color the chipboard words with light purple pigment ink. Color the chipboard hearts with dark purple pigment ink. Spray the chipboard ladders with white spray paint. Apply Twinkle Watermark ink to all chipboard, sprinkle with clear embossing powder, and apply heat to set for a shimmery finish.

5. Apply brown dye ink to the chipboard ladders and edges of the tags. Glue the chipboard words and hearts onto the ladders. Glue one embellished ladder onto each tag.

6. Dry brush gesso over each tag for a shabby finish.

7. Use purple twine to attach seam binding bows to the top of each tag.
