 Hello friends

Hope you are good!

Today I want to share with you a large ETCETERA tag
by Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous 
These tags are a base for any mixed media project and they come in various sizes. The tags are made from a Thickboard and are perfect for altering or collaging.
(They and all the other items used on this post are available from Art from the Heart here)
I love vintage and wanted to create an old vintage look.....
So I covered my tag with gesso then applied several layers of Rangers texture (opaque crackle) paste
When it had dried I applied distress paint using a dabber (ground expresso) wiping away away the paint with a wet wipe.

The centre piece (some grey board) was given the same treatment, but I also added 
distress grit paste through some stencils to add more texture. 
The photograph is from my own vintage collection, 
I then added some stitching, a circle of rusty wire, a rusty old key and some words from big chat/chit chat.  The butterflies are from Tim Holtz  Botanical ephemera set and I added number rub-ons. 
To finish I added a quote chip and some stars 
I hope you like the always feel free to leave a comment, 
I appreciate each and everyone!
Have a lovely week!
Bye for now
