Autumn's Splendor Mixed Media Tag

 Stamplorations is having a huge "Giving Thanks" Blog Hop & Linky Party!
   Also Joining the STAMPlorations girls are 15 amazing
                              and talented guest designers!
Shery will be giving away a lot of great prizes for this hop and is having her biggest store wide sale event of the year! You won't want to miss it!

Today I am sharing a mixed media tag with Autumn leaves. 
A falling leaf is Autumn's splendor

 #8 manila tag was altered with a crackle background stamped in red geranium and fern green archival inks. Colored with peeled paint and antique linen distress paints. Coated with a matte collage medium and dusted with fine glitter. 
Seam binding was colored with peeled paint and stamped with "Thanks" sentiment and stapled onto tag along with some hay straw for a bow.
 "A Falling leaf is autumns splendor" sentiment is from Tim Holt's small talk occasion stickers, applied unto corrugated cardboard piece.
 Embellished with fabric leaves and gold stamens. Distressing tag with vintage photo crayon. Thank you for looking! And have a nice Thanksgiving!

*I am Thankful for The Beauty of Autumn*
