Hello my Darling

So it has been a while but here is a tag I created using one of my vintage photos, texture paste and also plenty of distress crayons. 

I love this vintage photo and for some reason it make me think of my Grandad ...

I started by adding texture paste through a selection of Tim Holtz stencils. When dry I added a layer of collage medium so give a great surface to use the distress crayons on...

I then selected some collage elements to use on the tag. I inked the edges and also selected some idea-ology and a die cut heart that I inked and spritzed.

I placed them onto the tag to decide where to place them and added some collage medium and then some distress crayons..

And here is the finished tag ...I added some dyed seam binding, some staples from the mini attacher

I added the heart and word band at the bottom of the tag

I just love this photo and hope I have done it justice ...

here are a few of the details...

So there is my make ... a vintage coloured tag inspired by a vintage photo..

I would like to add this over at a Vintage Journey - where they are offering that you can add a tag for tag Friday.
I would also like to add it to Go Tag Thursday - where the theme is vintage.
