Beyond the Imperfections - Mixed Media Tag

I started out creating my tag for the challenge at A Mixed Media Challenge, but just couldn't limit myself to the Red, Brown and a Neutral, as I started throwing in all kinds of color!

To create my Mixed Media Tag, I covered my large tag with scraps from the Printery collection. To add color and texture the to tag, I added some Gesso over the Tiny Dangle Stencil from Just a Trace, Rub Ons from the She Art Collection and used a Distress Paint cap dipped into Frayed Burlap Ink to add circles to the tag. 

I added a pattern paper layer using the cover sheet from the She Art Collection, sponging the ends with Gathered Twigs Ink, and added bits of Gesso using the Tiny Dangle stencil and rub ons to match the tag panel.

I stamped the Julie Nutting Doll image from Prima onto Prima Printery pattern paper and again onto some She Art (Christy Tomlinson) pattern paper, sponged all edges with Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, then paper pieced the dress onto the doll.  

The sentiment is from Dylusions The Right Words stamp set, stamped on scraps of pattern paper, sponged with Gathered Twigs Ink and adhered in place with Multi Medium.  To finish the tag, I layered it on an Espresso panel.
