It's the last day of the reveal. There are times I wish we could have done additional tags, but I'm grateful to have had the time to get these three done.
Today's tag reminds me of the crisp Fall air -- and apples from the tree. There's nothing better than picking a ripe apple from the tree...
Just a few notes for this one. I was able to create the design for the paper doll using shapes from the SCAL library. The design is loosely based on the images created by Christiana Bellini. The skirt of the patterned paper dress is "pleated." Just glue the top pleated edge to the doll body. Add the additional elements for the dress. Add the hair which consists of an oval and a half oval with a line of stitching. Ink the edges if desired. Glue the large oval to the back of the head. Glue the half oval to the front, covering the top of the head. You could add a bow made of paper or ribbon if wanted.
The tree is from the Valentine Gnome file from Simply Crafty SVGs. The top of the tree was cut 3 times and resized. All of the papers were inked to add a little more interest. The top 2 pieces were popped up using foam dots.
The tag was colored using distress inks to create a background. Be sure to stop by the Facebook page to see all the rest of the images posted for this Reveal.
The lettering on the apple basket was hand lettered using a .01 Micron pen. The basket edges were inked with a dark brown ink pad.
The apples are from the SCAL library. You can ink the edges. Apply a light coat of Mod Podge Hi Lustre glaze with a paint brush to make them shiny if you'd like. Let dry and stack the apples in the basket. Add a couple of foam tape squares to the back to adhere to the tag.
I think tag is my favorite of the three this year.
Thanks for stopping by! Hoping you've carved out some creative time this coming week. I have and I'm looking forward to sharing a couple of new projects that I'm working on.
