Marilyn Monroe has always been one of my all time favorites! It is so exciting to have our monthly inspiration one of her famous quotes.
"Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world!"
I hope you enjoy the tag I created about a girl and her lovely dancing shoes.
For this project I used a #10 large manila tag. I attached printed tissue paper using an adhesive especially good for thin papers. I defined the edges using a distress ink.
I used rub on images from The Robin's Nest line called Viva La France.
I used a Julie Nutting stamp on manila cardstock and stamped two. I cut one for the tag and cut out templates of the dress parts with the other.
I printed out the quote and cut into some individual words. I used the dress template and cut out dress parts using Brick fat plaid and Glitter discovery girl.
To help the words show more I glued them to the Glitter discovery girl paper, cut out, and defined the edges with a distress ink.
I gathered ribbon, lace, and yarn together, folded it in half, and pushed the loop end through the hole in the manila tag. I took the ends and threaded them through the loop, pulling to tighten.
I used distress markers for coloring the girl, glued the pieces together and onto the tag, added a few vintage ticket stubs, and mini dew drops to finish the tag.
Thank you for coming by to view my tutorial. It was so much fun to create.
