Purple LOVE

 Another tag for Grungy Monday 's challenge

This one is really a different tag than I have ever done... but wanted to get a lot of techniques onto ONE tag... and I got at least 7... maybe you can find more.... 
 Anyway... these are the ones I used... 
We are to use techniques that Tim used on his 12 Tags of Christmas... but use other than Christmas themes... 

 So for the background I used the technique from Tag one...
And dyed seam binding from tag #2.  
Tissue paper ruffle from tag #12.

And Glassine flowers from tag #7   

I used canvas which I hadn't used and created the Love emblem... dyed it and then used glossy accent in the spaces...  which were from #2 tag and #4 tag... 

Then I created the banner... which was from tag #10... 

My favorite one on this tag is the background one... love doing that... it is so GREAT... and really makes for a very dimensional background.  

Speaking of dimension... I really have a lot on this tag... the banner is about one inch off the tag... and it is on top of flowers, that have been made from paper that I inked from my worksheet... and also that I made using re-inkers and Perfect pearls... the darker looking flowers are made from Glassine paper... which I used alcohol inks on... I used twilight purple and also pool... and then added a touch of gold here and there... in real life the flowers are really nice.. a little dark in the picture though... sorry about that... there is one larger one and two buds... 

I loved using all these different techniques...  if you haven't used any of the new ones I suggest that you take time from your schedule and start to make one at a time... they are each wonderful to play with... and really give you a lot of different ways to use the product which is GREAT in itself!!!  

A lot of ways to use each and every technique... not just one way... 

Well another fun day of playing... hope that you had a fun one too... and hope that you will stop back soon... always fun here... and making something to create a mess in my studio... LOL... 

Love, Light and Peace...  Bonnie
