MMMC #30: Color Inspiration and Autumn Tags

Hi friends and Happy November! Today is the start of a brand new challenge over at the Mixed Media Monthly Blog and this month we have a great color inspiration board! I made a couple of mixed media tags loaded with Autumn goodness and I hope you find it inspiring and want to join in the mixed media fun too! There is lots more great inspiration to see for our MMMC #30 challenge and an awesome sponsor offering a great prize so take a look and see what speaks to you!
I designed 2 mixed media tags inspired by these autumn colors and tones (plus a few flowers, hehe).  There is also a great new challenge going on now at the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog that fits the bill. RRR Challenge #152-Tag, You're It! Hope you'll play along too!!!  
I had fun creating my own background with stencils, modeling paste and colored sprays. In addition to a variety of flowers, each tag has a metal keyhole distressed with layers of paint and ink. I also added some altered wooden leaves (one painted and stamped, the other painted, gold foiled and splattered with white), paper and fabric leaves, buttons with twine, bead berry spray clusters and gold thread. I wanted to make them suitable for the season and found these two bible verses in my stamp stash a perfect fit. Finally, I added some elegant ivory satin ribbon and sherry diamond satin ribbon to the top of each tag all tied together with a little twine bow.
 A close up of the mixed media yumminess....
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you'll also head over to the MMMC blog and take a look at the awesome inspiration for this challenge from the rest of the team!  I look forward to seeing your creations too!!! Have a great day!
