That Craft Place Challenge.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.

And here is my fifth design for :
That Craft Place Challenge Blog.

As usual this fortnight's theme is:
Mixed Media Anything Goes!
So can't go wrong there!

And I chose this time to work with tags to make a 3Dimensional wall plaque... at least that was my idea!
I started with these four tags which are available from That Craft Place.

And played around for a while with the arrangement as I had decided to stack them.

Next I started the process of decorating the tags.
I applied grunge paste through a stencil (Cogs-That Craft Place).
I can't resist those Steampunk stencils.
I wanted to try different techniques with the same stencil and here are the results.
The smallest stencil on the left was done using Viva Ferro Golden Green Metalic Effect Colour. 
The next was using sticky embossing powder to which I added Clear Micro Beads and the third one was done with Viva crackle glaze.
The largest tag at the bottom was the one I completed with the Grunge paste.

The colours don't matter as I will be painting over these which I have done here with white Gesso.

And then applied metallic paints to the tags.

 This is basically how I plan the finished arrangement should look.

So many combinations!
Here are some of the mediums I used to make this project.

 I added further crackle paste to the design and a little stamping .
They all looked so nice that it was very difficult to stack them, covering all that gorgeousness! but plans are plans Lol! so here goes.......

Coloured a few embellishments.

 And then set about putting it all together and this is how it looks completed.
Still not sure about the Angel, she may end up more brassy but she kind of softens the Steampunk theme.
Let me know what you think.

Hope you enjoyed looking and will pop over and join in the challenge over at
Happy crafting,
Angela x

Oh my goodness, Angela, this is brilliant! I would never have thought of stacking the tags - that's a master stroke, so imaginative. The steampunk theme is great, and I think the colour scheme, as well as the angel, soften it somewhat. It is almost good enough to eat!!!

what a great tag Angela! And of course- I too love steampunk and your luscious layers of steampunk- just yummy!!! Love the added embellishments as well and like you, not sure about the angel- perhaps if she was colored in the embellishment colors as well? In any case- your tag is full of gorgeousness!
