It's Gez's turn to set the challenge over on Something Completely Different this week so I really couldn't let the week pass without having a go. This month's object is the tag and Gez's theme for the week is "hearts".
I picked up an old book of music in a charity shop (goodwill store for my American friends!) a few weeks ago and thought this would be the perfect project to use a little of it as it gave me the opportunity to pun off the word "key" and although Kathy is the queen of puns I think I may be second in line to the throne ;o) The keys are stamped over the hole in the tag so it looks a bit like they're swinging from the chain and I found the space between the staves was perfect for the sentiment!
My heart is hand cut from some packaging - it had the corrugated texture showing rather than being laminated with another plain sheet which made me save it. I grunged it a little by rubbing some gesso in with my finger. The wire was saved from the 'cage' on a bottle of Rioja, the lace is vintage and the chain is from a broken necklace so all in all I did pretty well on the three Rs here, huh?
