Mixed Media Tag with the NEW Lace!

Blends and 3 Girl JAM-mers

I am happy to be the Design Team Member posting for 3 Girl JAM today!

I was super excited to get to play around and create a Mixed Media Tag for a swap I am in with a fun group on FB.  I spoke with my swap partner about her "favorites" and she was super sweet to give me a lot of ideas to work with.  As soon as she said "pinks, blues, silvers, whites, and greens", I grabbed the NEW Lace from 3 Girl JAM!!!  

This lace is beyond Gorgeous and I can't wait for it to be released so all my friends can play with it in their creations, too.  The colors are scrumptious and I adore the mixed colors Julie created and will have available!

I have included a picture heavy, information loaded, step-by-step at my personal blog, Jessica's Craft Shaque.  Feel free to stop by to get all the juicy details on this Mixed Media project and all the products that were used!

Now, to show the colors of the lace against my semi-finished tag.  GORGEOUS, RIGHT?

I started to embellish the tag first, by pleating and adhering the wider blue/green lace just under the hole at the top.

I then created a second row of lace, using the same technique, but with the thinner pink lace this time.  

I wanted to offset the large cluster of paper flowers on the bottom, by using some of the FABULOUS Crinkle Ribbon from the 3 Girl JAM Shop.

 I created a triple bow on my 3 Girl JAM Bow Maker using the Mixed Color Ribbon from the Red, White & Blue Bundle along with the Christmas Candy Ribbon from the Seasons Bundle.

Using some twine, I added a key charm to the center of the bow as I was making it with the Bow Maker.

A final touch --- adding the binder ring!

ALL IN ALL, I really enjoyed trying out this Mixed Media Project.
