Soaring Along

For a change of
pace, I created a tag using some older Graphic 45 papers... Communique, Steampunk Debutante and Le Cirque. I'm a huge fan of Graphic 45, but actually don't have many of their papers in my stash. I think I'll be changing that fact in the near future. Here's what I made...

I have a ton of
elements on this little piece of manila paper... the focus being this black bird with the light bulb.

However, I think he 
may have gotten over shadowed by the pen nibs. What do you think? This chipboard piece is sitting on top of a die cut from Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles.

The mini gears, 
fasteners, and pen nib are all Idea-ology. I love the quality of their metal products and usually reach for their brand over the others... and I always purchase them on sale or with a coupon making them the better buy.

The clock is a 
scrap of Core'dinations embossed cardstock that I sanded. Beneath it is a pocket cut with Alterations Pocket Envelope with the top flap folded to the inside.

The #5 tag is lined
with Idea-ology Filmstrip ribbon, a Graphic 45 Staples tag and a Steampumk chipboard clock. Mays Arts black burlap string and wrinkled seam binding are tied through the holes in the tags.
