"Be Thankful" Shadowbox Tag

" everything give thanks;..."
1 Thessalonians 5:18

There's ALWAYS something to be thankful for! 

For this project, I used Graphic 45's Place in Time collection.
I used elements from the September, October, and November pages, 
the phrase, "Be Thankful" from the Sentiments page, 
and the red flower from Chipboard Sheet #2.

Sideview. The base of the tag was sprayed LIBERALLY with 
Adirondak Color Washes in shades of red, yellow, and plum

The sunflowers came from a paper by K & Company.
I layered them to add more dimension to the tag.

The pretty beads are from an old autumn garland 
I've had for years. 
The chipboard laser cuts on the top and bottom are from 
the fine folks at Stay True to God
I painted them with copper and gold metallic paints 
for some sparkle.

The frame of the tag was created with a 
metallic printed paper from Sei.
I embossed it with clear and gold embossing 
powder for added texture. LOVE that little doggie rolling in the grass!

Fun project, but it took forever and I'm THANKFUL I'm done! Now on to Christmas!!!!
