Cherub Garden Tag for Creative Embellishments

 I like to use large tags as my creative "playground".  It's sort of an art journal for me.  I just can't do traditional art journals, I draw a blank every time I open one.  But, give me a tag, and the mojo sometimes flows. 

This is definitely one of those pieces that didn't have a plan.  I started by adhering a piece of 49 and Market design paper to a large tag and then though hmmm, those Little Birdie succulents would look good with this paper.  Then I grabbed a harlequin stencil and stenciled on a harlequin pattern. 

Well then I remembered those harlequin chipboard pieces and thought they'd look nice too.  I heat embossed them with Stamependous Shabby Chic embossing powder.

Then I added my succulent garden.  Love these from Little Birdie Crafts.  I've had these little Prima resin cherubs forever.  Dont ask me why, it just popped in my head to add cherubs and call it a cherub garden.

So I thought, if I'm going to have cherubs, I need an angel/cherub kinda word, hence peace.  Works for me.  😄

Well. that's how one thing leads to another!  Hope you've enjoyed this little trip through my creative process!  Thanks for joining me.
