I started with a Ranger size 10 Manilla tag and scraped on a thick layer of rather old gesso, I mention this because it is a bit dried out and very thick, just right for what I wanted it for on this occasion:
Spritz in the colour Truffle. Spritz is a wonderful translucent shimmering spray, just perfect for a first layer. Again, here's a close up:
Vibez ( a less translucent and more vibrant spray) in the colours Truffle and Before Dawn, and sprayed them towards the center of the tag:
Shimmerz, paints, I chose warm yellow, orange and red, these are the colours I used: Royal Red, Pumpkin, Sunflower and a tiny bit of Celery.
Blingz, in Gold Glimmer, watering it down, to add just that tiny bit shimmer (hard to see on the photo). I then edged the leaves with a bit of dark brown Distress Ink (Ground Espresso)
Now all I had to do was add a few bits and bobs from my stash to create a kind of autumnal cluster, a sentiment, and I was done.
The wreath thing was a Dusty Attic chippy that I gave a few spritzes of Truffle Spritz
