Dreaming of Spring

It's finally Friday!  I know I'm glad that the weekend is just about here.  I'm also glad that next week is Spring Break for my kiddos. So we will be out and about having some fun. 

The Altered Pages Design Team is partnering with Robin's Nest and the two teams are coming up with some fun and imaginative art for you. The thought of warmer weather, fun in the sun and and all these Springy lovelies from Robin's Nest and Altered Pages that are sitting out on my desk put me in the mood for an over sized Springtime tag. 

The background of my tag was made using my turquoise and yellow Niji Oil Pastels. You can find them here. I love how easily the oil pastels blend. I just used my finger to smudge and blend as I went along...super easy. I did add a bit of crackle finish over the top of that and it gave it a neat finish. I rather like it. 

I then began adding layers of torn paper from The Robin's Nest. You can find this oh so pretty pink paper here. I then added a bit of Glitz crepe trim in yellow and a cute little duckling collage image. You can find the yellow crepe trim here and the Springtime collage image here.

I then HAD to add some twinkle. Dew Drops are perfect for this. I added one to the tip of the umbrella and the inset of a flower. I also added them to the crepe trim along with a little scrap of yellow baby ball fringe. You can find the dew drops here. Robin's Nest has every color dew drop imaginable and they even have diamond pretty. 

I added a bit of turquoise glitter ribbon for an extra pop of sparkle. Next, was just to finish it off with some ribbon for hanging and done! I'm not sure if this will be given away attached to a gift maybe or kept and incorporated into an Easter display. I have time to figure that out...wait, did I just say that out loud? 

I wanted to show you that I also decorated the back as well using more glitter paper from Robin's Nest as well as their cute butterfly glitter stickers. They also have the cutest rub on's. It made it so easy to add a sentiment to the tag. I have to say that I have worked with a lot of rub on's and these really are awesome! The package came with a popcycle stick so I did't need to grab any other tools. The best part was it actually worked...the first time...without fail or missing sections of lettering. I really love the Robins Nest "rubon". You can find them here.  You can see a couple other colors (blue and yellow) of the glitter paper in the backdrop of the pictures I have taken.  


All ready to give away...if I don't decide to keep it. ;-) 

Happy Friday and Happy Spring, almost!
