Have you seen the Fall Tag tutorials that Nancy Burke is doing on her blog? There will be 12 and they are so awesome that I just had to try and play along. The thing is that I am a bit behind. Today is day #3 and I am just finishing the first one. I hope to catch up this weekend. I love fall decor but when I started working on these, I found out that I just didn't have alot of fall stuff in my stash so I used papers, fabrics, and ribbons that were the right colors. My tags need to be more cream and brown colors to go with my decor too. I tried to do the cool background and found out I need to make or buy more warm tones of mist! I ended up stamping my text in Walnut stain distressed ink and then sponging Brushed Corduroy distressed ink and I think those are the types of browns I need for my tags. I just loved her tied cinnamon so I had to have that part but I added a metal lock rather than a clock because I couldn't find one that worked for me.
Thanks for the inspiration, Nancy!!! *Visit Nancy's Blog HERE*
