Hello friends and happy Sunday!

Hope you are well and enjoying your weekend.  I have a lot on at the moment so I have not been posting as regularly as I normally do.  However, today we have my DT inspiration project for this month’s challenge over on More Than Words and a quote that I really need to focus on more in my own life…

today’s art . . .

Today’s offering is this mixed media tag that I made as my DT inspiration for MTW Mini Challenge for January – the first Mini Challenge of the year – where the word inspiration is START. You can find the challenge details at the end of this post, do join in if you feel inspired.

I don’t have any step-by-step photos for you today as I was working at night and the light was terrible – no good for photos – but I can tell you a little bit about the tag.

First of all it was going to be a card, but I couldn’t decide, so then I cut these Infusion coloured pieces of card down into ATCs, but then I wasn’t completely happy with that either, so I left everything on my desk overnight and focused on something else.

Next day I looked at everything again and decided it really wanted to be a tag.  I also pulled out some different supplies including this lovely olive green ribbon I bought for Christmas.

This colour combo might not be everyone’s cup of tea but it is one that I love!  I would absolutely put pink cushions on an olive sofa for example lol.  So I glued the ATCs onto one side of the tag, and then added the ribbon to the other side.  I added the white leaf die-cuts to the pink side and added snow texture paste to the green side.  I also added gold and white ink dots and some lime Stickles for some shine.

To finish off, I used a Tim Holtz quote sticker with more of the infusions-coloured card and glued them on the tag.  Then I added some white pom pom ribbon to hang the tag.  And that’s the finished tag for this month’s challenge.  I hope you feel inspired to join in the challenge this month.  This mini challenge is held in the Art Cafe Facebook Group which you can find here.
