Autumn Tags by Joyce

Like so many of you, Autumn is my favorite time of year.  Now, and when I was a kid, if I find a pile of faded dead leaves ahead of me on my walking path, I stomp on them just to hear the crunchy noise they make under my shoes.

These tags weren't anything like I thought they would turn out to be. You know how you have a certain idea in your head while creating, and a little happy accident materializes? Well, these are my little happy accidents. I first spritz over bright colors of yellow, orange, green and red and they were just too bright for my taste that day. I added some gesso over my work to tone down the colors, and by doing so, the colors blended and toned down to warm dusty autumn colors.  I added some elements I received in some happy mail from my art buddy and soon the tags were creating themselves. I love it when that happens!

Shimmerz Products use on this project were as follows:

Spritz - Tuscan Sun, and Olive Branch
Vibez-Snow Storm

Coloringz-Bleeding Heart, and Mandarin Mai Tai

I hope you experience a little happy accident too.

Thank you for letting me share with you.

Yes, there are stamps and paper napkin fussy cutting on the tags too. Thanks for asking.
