Dreams Mixed Media Tag

2
 
 
 
We were in a gift shop in Savannah, GA  and I saw this quote on a book "If your Dreams Don't Scare You, They Aren't Big Enough!"  Honestly, the statement is so true.   The goals in my life where I had to overcome the fear of something, have been my most rewarding achievements.  
 
 
 
I also recently purchased a few feather molds. I shared, a few weeks back, my collection of feather clay pieces on Instagram/Facebook. The quote reminded me of the feathers, and inspired the theme of the tag.
 
Those who follow me, also know, I'm not a huge Halloween fan. However, in the spirit of the season, I decided to keep my tag along the "nightmare" gothic/dark side.   Since the quote uses the words scare and dream, I felt that this would make a perfect theme. 
 
 
 
Purple is not usually my first color choice, but this year I have really been drawn to the color.  I decided to keep my tag's colors simple with tones of purple, black and gold.  All perfect for night and Halloween!    I used the new Steampunk Gelatos® set from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Black Cherry and the Black Licorice Gelatos® to color the base of the tag.  
  
Here is a glimpse at my finished tag. 
 
I have also prepared a process video showing you how I created the tag.
 
 

 
 
I hope you have enjoyed my tag.  Thanks for stopping in today,
 
Tonya Gibbs

Ustream - Post Poned

0
Hi everyone,
I need to reschedule the ustream that was scheduled for today for later in the month. I have a lot going on right and am feeling a little overwhelmed.  I will let you know when I can get it scheduled. 

I'm planning to do a chalkboard design, and want to make sure I have a clear mind.  Look for a rescheduled date soon. 

Thanks for understanding,

Tonya
