It is Jess's last week with us in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say a huge thank you for all of your creations over the past month. It has been a real pleasure to have you along with us :-)

I am just back from a fabulous visit to Simon HQ and picked up a few bits and bobs while I was there and have used a few new things on my tag today ;-)

I made a tag using a new Small Etcetera Tag, a perfect size I think ;-)


I started by painting it with White Gesso and I then used Collage Medium and crumpled Collage Paper over the top. 

I then used Roses, Mini Stencils Set 5 and  Falling Stars Layering Stencils and Distress Oxide Inks to create the background and then used a Baseboard Doll and a new Trinket Frames Bigz Die for the focus. I splattered with Dylusions Inks in Red, Blue and Black. 




Thanks for looking :-) 

So now it's YOUR turn!
