"Wander" Tag







This bohemian-style, multi-layered tag was created on grunge
board for Louise’s wonderful Tag Tuesday. It includes batik fabric, fibers, Osnaberg, cheese cloth, tulle, corrugated board, moss, and
twine. Also features a butterfly made from feathers and a glass bottle with miniature beads. And last but not least, there is a shell that I
saved from the beach in Panama City when my husband and I celebrated our 1st anniversary.

Why a butterfly in a beach scene? Because there were butterflies on
the beach when we were there!

The cheese cloth was rolled and glued to simulate the foam of ocean waves (although a little difficult to see here.)

And, of course, I am such a life explorer that the "Wander" metal tag
is indicative of my own spirit of adventure.


Hugs,
Cindy

Wow, Cindy, you sure are one busy lady! Your tag is so pretty! I love the butterfly/beach theme, especially since it includes a special shell! What kind of adhesive do you like to use when you adhere heavier items?

Makes me wish I lived close to the ocean so I could go out and collect such beautiful elements. I know, we can buy them but these make me feel like you were having a good time accumulating them...such a gorgeous tag...just beautiful, Cindy. Hugs, Gayle.

That is beautiful!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!

I need to learn how to make things like that. I'm thinking I need to make a trip to New Orleans so we can get together and you can teach me.

By the way, we love Panama City Beach. We had a wonderful family vacation there back in 1998...complete with the best watermelon we had ever eaten!! (Our hotel brought out chilled watermelon to the poolside every afternoon at 2:00).

Have a great evening.

Love,
Patti
