Spring Tag

Our days are slowing getting warmer, and there is the promise of spring and summer in the air. I'm eager for the flowers to bloom!! But, while I wait for them, I created this spring tag.


I included fern fronds and flower buds that I dried last summer using Arnold Grummer's Garden Press. (Can't wait to press flowers and leaves again this summer!!)

I started with a wooden tag that I painted white. The next step was to napkin collage the flower motifs at the bottom and upper right corner. the fern fronds and flower buds were decoupaged in place using PPA. 

When the tag was dry I added ribbons and the little bird in the upper left corner, which I die cut from my own handmade paper.
