Twelve Tags Of Christmas Challenge
Of course I was thrilled to be asked, but mixed media . . . gulp. I told Loll that I would love to be a guest, but I wasn't even sure what constituted 'mixed media' . . . I needn't have worried because anyone who has had any dealings with Loll will know how sweet and generous and helpful she is. She explained that I was probably making things that would already constitute 'mixed media' without even realising it!
So, I made a selection of tags to Loll's specification and sent her pictures and she told me that they all fitted and to choose my favourite. As Loll has a liking for these colours, I chose this tag in honour of her.
First, I made a Bokeh piece and die cut a stitched tag from it, then I stencilled stars with glitter gel all over it and whilst it was drying I die cut a few snowflakes and did the sentiments.
When all was dry, I adhered the snowflakes, putting enamel dots in the centres and popped the sentiment strips up on foam tape for dimension and finished it all off with some black, organza ribbon.
Why not join in the fun over at Loll's blog and show us your tags!
As if more incentive was needed, Loll is also generously offering prizes too!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Loll publicly for her faith in me, whenever I doubted myself and for being so sweet as to take a chance and give me my very first opportunity at being part of a DT . . . thank you, thank you, thank you Loll from the bottom of my heart!
Thanks too to all of you, my lovely readers throughout this past year who have supported me and left me such sweet comments and words of encouragement!
Now, what are you waiting for . . . get tagging! Hazel xx
