"I love using circles on things I make, as you may have noticed. If I get stuck for an idea, I generally start with a circle to help me out. I'd like you to use 3 circles on whatever you make this week. Just make sure you have fun!"I used the flap of a corrugated box to create a tag, then ripped off the top layer of paper in random places. To create more background interest, I used my "go to" script stamp. Since Susan and I both love most all things vintage, I found online an old photo of a pensive young woman, then printed and matted that on some green-ish cardstock, tearing one edge to mimic the torn paper in the tag base. I randomly used bits of DecoArt's Celery Green paint, then added Tim Holtz' Rusty Hinge Distress Paint as a contrast. I used a sticker with the word "wisdom" as my title, then added a chain--rather than the more traditional ribbon, and I was done with time to spare.
Ah, but you ask, "Where are those circles?" Actually, I interpreted the SDC loosely and added circle shapes by using three vintage buttons! Clever, yes?
Here's my tag:
