Winter Solstice Tag

Recently,my childhood neighbor and friend,
Jennifer aka LadyJane Vintage,sent me a wonderful envie  full of vintage bits and bobs!

 After ooohhing and aaaahhhhing over my vintage treasures,I set about to design and create something from my cache!Thanks so much Jen❤!

So here is where I began,if you have a few minutes,grab a cuppa,for there are many photos and a bit of detail on how I created this tag~

 First thing,gathering up pieces I plan to use,laces and rose ribbon from Jen,a vintage snowflake, a tag of course,and a graphic of a beautiful winter solstice lady
 painted my tag with chalky finish paint~for the matte look
 then roughed up the edges of my graphic and tag
giving my vintage snowflake some new life with snow and glamour dust
 stamping,inking and embossing
 spraying some color as well as adding snow and glitter
starting to layer and using matte gel to secure my elements
 adding a bit of whiteness with a hint of glimmer
 everything is added now and here is a feast of photos for you to enjoy!

  ribbons and lace from Jen


Thanks so much for your visit! Surely everyone is busy making merry and preparing for the upcoming holidays,so I really appreciate your taking the time!
 I hope you enjoyed my share~see you again soon!
Sending warm winter wishes out to you!

absolute holiday perfection! I really have to get in a tag-swapping group with you! LOL I need some of your work around me to inspire.
I also am a fan of Lindy's products - the BEST colors for mists and embossing powders out there. They have an amazing range of tones and shades, don't they?!
If I don't see anything from you before the holiday, have a most splendid one - and a charmed coming year!

Thank you so much for your sweet word on my blog. I had a Christmas workshop with the class of my daughter, so the card with barn door is the only card I had made. Fun to try something new, have just held classes for experienced ladies, so to assist the 15 year olds, both boys and girls, was an amazing experience. A Very Merry Christmas to you and your family. Good and warm hug from Jorunn ♥

What an amazing tag, Jackie - she's a true Snow Queen. Dazzling shimmery on the snowflake and the text in the background, and what a fabulous image. Hope you're ready for the festivities ahead.

Thanks so much for all your lovely tag comments... sadly it was the other Alison (Craftytrog) whose name came out of the hat, but I think we all won in having so much lovely inspiration from Linda.
