Lace is pretty and can be used in so many different ways to add beauty to your projects. Let's see what design team member Yvonne Yam came up with for LESSology Challenge #48: Lace up!

I created a mixed media tag using remnant lace and mesh tape on a piece of cardboard.:)


I started with some packaging cardboard. I peeled off the top layer to expose the corrugated cardboard texture underneath and then painted it with gesso to strengthen the cardboard base.


Then I added some mesh tape and remnant lace and went over with another coat of gesso before adding shimmering colours using Silks Acrylic Glazes.


Even the Maya Road resin bird was not spared a paint job...*winks*


I used The Crafter's Workshop stencil with Liquitex sand resin medium to create branches for the flowers and leaves to sit on.

It's amazing what you can create on a piece of cardboard eh?

The "Joyful Heart" sentiment is perfect for this "joyful tag." Its vibrant colors emanate joy. It looks like you spent quite a bit of time on this luxury tag, and it is something special for someone to enjy for many hears to come. Beautiful!
