Happy Birthday To ME and Birthday Blog Candy for YOU! Leave me a Comment for a chance to win Blog Candy and Click here to subscribe to my mailing list for more chances to WIN BLOG CANDY! I have lots of goodies here that need a new home where they can be put to good use! Today's Dazzling Diva Design Challenge was to use Hexagons. I decided to do a couple more Art Journal Pages 'cause I am just an Art Journal-ista! (I wish I'd known how much fun this was going to be!) I started with my three favorite Craft Metal Colors – Dark Rich Chocolate Metal, Brushed Copper, and Brushed Bronze.
I rubbed Distress Stains Directly onto the Tissue Paper – Antique Bronze, Vintage Photo and Antique Linen. Then, I spritzed them with water, rubbed the pages with a Flour Sack Towel and dried it with a Heat Tool.
The Dark Rich Chocolate Metal was used for the Honeycomb and then the other colors were placed in the centers and adhered with Glue Dots.
The Idea-ology lock was adhered to the top of the left page with Glue Dots. I used a Dyan Reavely Stencil and Dream Weaver's Black Embossing Paste to put the quote onto the pages.
The Tag was cut from cardstock and the decorative top was punched using a Stampin' Up! Scallop Edge Punch. It was Distressed using Distress Stains and then Idea-Ology Mini Corners were attached to the bottom and a Linen Ribbon was distressed and attached to the top. The whole tag was then layered onto a piece of Dark Chocolate Metal Sheet that was punched using the SU! Scallop Edge Punch and attached to the page using Sticky Strip.
